Analyzing the coronavirus' impact on (social) media: a tale how sociologists and computer scientists work together

[go to overview]
Lukas Schmelzeisen

The coronavirus has (had) a significant impact on everyone’s live in 2020. This is a tale of a team of sociologists and a computer scientist that try to work together to analyze how this impact manifested itself in (social) media, specifically newspapers and Twitter. Because it’s still to early for results, this talk will instead present how this interdisciplinary team operates, attempt to reflect on challenges encountered, and, of course, go over what has been achieved so far.
