Workshop on content analysis

April 12 @ 9:00 - 17:00

In the «Workshop on content analysis – Best practices, challenges and opportunities in (automatic) content analysis for social science research: triangulating AI and other approaches to cover ethical topics» participants will learn how to triangulate main approaches and strategies for studying social science related concepts in text collections with (automated) content analysis methods, including large language models. Challenges and opportunities of these approaches will be discussed and datasets from social media, news media and expert communication are selected to highlight ethical questions while addressing topics of interest for communication, political, linguistic and social sciences (including algorithms, religion, health and ethics).

Against this background, the workshop highlights methods of distant reading and how, due to recent advances, also close reading is increasingly possible automatically. The focus will be on ethical questions and include large language models. The workshop will also pay particular attention to validation and robustness check strategies (e.g., integration of and correlation with external (survey) data, event and manual validations, blackbox models), while highlighting the usefulness of a «human-in-the-loop» component.

The workshop will be held by Prof. Dr. Gerold Schneider and Dr. Maud Reveilhac.
