Social networks have become a popular method to advance relational thinking in human geography. In recognizing the challenge of how to reconcile the tension between ‘structure and meaning’ (Pachucki and Breiger, 2010), we elaborate on the concepts of connectivity, contextuality, and reflexivity to overcome the dualism between universalist network science on the one hand and idiosyncratic network stories on the other. Based on a detailed meta-analysis of over 300 network studies in human geography between 1990 and 2018, we argue for and elaborate on combined methodological approaches to unleash the full potential of relational geography.

In the week from 17 to 22 February 2020, the teaching and research institutes of the University of Bremen and Jacobs University invite you to the first Bremen Social Sciences Week! A variety of events on the topic of "Societies in Transition" will highlight current Bremen research priorities from various perspectives.

The programme is aimed at pupils, teachers, students and the general public. All events are free of charge. Listen, watch, learn, participate and discuss at the University of Bremen, in the Haus der Wissenschaft, on the Internet, in Bremen's pubs and in CITY 46. As diverse as research and teaching in Bremen are, so are the topics that await you during the course of the week: from PISA, social movements, NGOs and their means of political influence, filter bubbles, surrogate motherhood and student housing to questions of social cohesion and the digitalization of the social sciences, you will find everything you could wish for.

Recent Advances in Quantitative Text Analysis

Prof. Kenneth Benoit, PhD (London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE))

Time
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Organisation

Kenneth Benoit is Professor of Quantitative Social Research Methods and head of the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Politics Science and part-time professor at Trinity College Dublin. His contribution to text analysis in political science should not be underestimated, where his development of computer-assisted estimation of policy positions from political texts remains a cornerstone in the literature. He maintains and created the QUANTEDA package for managing and analysing text data, and therefore is well placed to offer insights into the "big picture" of QTA, and what to expect in the future.

Open to all, no registration necessary.

The goal is to explore the potential and limitations of optical character recognition (OCR) technology for the CRC. Each participant will bring data from his or her project, including, but not limited to PDFs of scanned book or photos of texts that need to be processed. In the workshop, we will try out different tools, review the results, and explore what workflows can best support the CRC in working with their data.
