The nexus between words and networks offers new possibilities to understand the impact of culture and language use in social networks and vice versa. Scholars use a variety of different approaches\, qualitative content based (e.g. QSA qualitative structural analysis\, content analysis)\, quantitative analysis (e.g. automated content analysis\, text mining)\, or a combination of both (e.g. DNA discourse network analysis). In this advanced seminar\, we introduce some of these methods in lectures combined with hands-on-tutorials. \n\nNetwork models of culture and discourse from sociological and political science perspectives will be the focus of the upcoming summer school Polnet Plus\, which will be organized by Boris Holzer (Department of Sociology) and Volker Schneider (Department of Politics and Public Administration) at the University of Konstanz at May 24 and 25\, 2019. \n\nVarious sessions will introduce the participants into the topic of the collection and analysis of network models of culture and discourse. The summer school includes a keynote speech by Prof. Alexander Mehler from the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main\, where he is a professor for Computational Humanities / Text Technology and heads the Text Technology Lab as part of the Institute of Informatics. \n\nIn addition\, we offer a pre-summer school refresher Network Analysis with R\, starting from Wednesday\, May 22 until Thursday\, May 23 (see timetable for newcomers and participants with-out basic knowledge in R and Social Network Analysis. \n\nThis year’s POLNET + faculty team includes Felix Bossner1\, Achim Edelmann2\, Boris Holzer1\, Ines Imbert 5\, Lukáš Lehotský3\, Jürgen Lerner1\, Melanie Nagel1\, Petr Ocelík3\, Adrian Rinscheid4\, Keiichi Satoh1 and Volker Schneider1. \n\n[ 1 University of Konstanz; 2 University of Bern; 3 Masaryk University; 4 University of St. Gallen; 5 EIfER European Institute for Energy Research EDF-KIT\, Karlsruhe] \n\nPlease do not hesitate to contact Christiane Richter ( with any further questions or to register your interest in attending the summer school until April 30. \n\nYou can also access additional information on \n\nWe are looking forward to welcoming you to Konstanz in May 2019. \n\nYours sincerely\, \n\nBoris Holzer Volker Schneider \n\n\n Related\n URL: END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
