Nicole Rae Baerg, lecturer at the Department of Government at the University of Essex, will give a free webinar looking at qualitative text analysis on Wednesday, February 21 at 8 a.m. PST/4 p.m. BST. The webinar,  Fundamentals of Quantitative Text Analysis for Social Scientists,” is hosted by SAGE Publishing.

Text analysis has a long history in the social sciences and has been commonly used to analyze media coverage. Historically, it involved the human coding of text and this has inherent issues. The digital age has made huge amounts of data available for analysis in the form of newspapers, blogs, social media feeds, government documents, the list goes on! As the technology to automate the analysis and coding of texts has become more available we are able to go beyond this and treat text as quantifiable data.

Join a discussion about the role that quantitative text analysis plays for social scientists when working with such vast amounts of data, as well hearing about ‘QTA in action’ and how social scientists are using text analysis for their research.
