I am organizing the POLTEXT symposium in Tokyo on 14-15 September, 2019. I have participated in the conference in 2016 (Croatia) as a presenter and in 2018 (Hungary) as a tutorial instructor, and learnt a lot from other participants. This is the time for me to offer such an opportunity people from inside and outside […]
I have presented my latest study on Sputnik News at ECPR Hamburg. This study shows that Russia is using conspiracy theory in Sputnik News articles to promote anti-establishment sentiment in the United State and Britain. The paper and slides are available.
I have presented Quantitative Analysis of Textual Data with R at a TokyoR event on 15th July hosted by Yahoo Japan. This was a great opportunity for me to reach out broad Japanese R users and tell them how easy it is to analyze Asian texts using quanteda. It was also really nice to meet […]
In a presentation titled Internationalizing Text Analysis at a workshop on the 27th June at Waseda University, I and Oul Han discussed what obstructing adoption of quantitative text analysis techniques in Japan and Korea.
