Veikko Eranti, Anna Kukkonen and Tuukka Ylä-Anttila from HEPO are presenting their poster Topic Modeling the Global Climate Policy Debate at the International Conference on Computational Social Science today. The poster presents our first attempt at combining qualitative justifications analysis, developed by our research group in collaboration with Laurent Thévenot, with machine learning methods and topic modeling tools. While our work is still preliminary, we think it it is possible to start analysing political justification in bigger textual corpora using a combination of automated analysis methods and sociological insights.

Come and meet us at the poster session (we’re panel number 53), see our poster on Prezi or as PDF, or follow frantic tweets from Veikko or Tuukka!
