Wednesday Workshop Series: #silentsam and Dealing with Social Data

October 9, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us Wednesday, Oct 9th at 12:30 in Greenlaw 431 for a presentation from the Social Media Data Group about their ongoing project analyzing a corpus of 60,000 tweets featuring #silentsam. Consisting of graduate and undergraduate students in English and Comparative Literature and SILS, the group is excited to share their interdisciplinary approach to data collection, analysis, and visualization. Focusing particularly on some of the technical basics (TAGS; using Jupyter Notebook) and their broad research questions, this session will share some initial findings about #silentsam and discuss some of the obstacles–ethical and technical–they’ve encountered. The group especially looks forward to hearing from you about potential avenues for future analysis.
