Probing the discourses of climate change (CC)

What can automatic text mining reveal about CC communication?

In a series of interrelated student projects, spanning across several seminars and research modules in 2020/2021, we apply text mining methods to a variety of text corpora (some of which we built ourselves). The overarching goal is to identify patterns, opinions and arguments brought forward in different CC discourses.

NEW (June 2021): On June 25, Prof. Stede will give an invited talk "Framing Climate Change: A Computational Approach" at the NLDB conference.

NEW (May 2021): A video that introduces five of our recent student projects (largely in German), targeting the general public, is available at the online "Potsdamer Tag der Wissenschaften" here.
