News from Sep 04, 2018
Project B02 of CRC 1171 organized an expert workshop on September 3, 2018, which dealt with the methodological implications of sentiment analysis for emotion research.
The workshop serves to prepare the first follow-up application of the project B02 of the Collaborative Research Centre 1171 "Affective Societies" with the title "The Order of Emotions with and through Journalism: Affective Dynamics as a Challenge to Public Communication". In particular, the planned methodological approach of researching emotions in audiovisual media texts and online comments will be discussed and strengthened. The aim of the workshop is a professional exchange between researchers who are dedicated to the research of emotions in media texts in their research projects. Short input lectures will discuss the yield of different methods for the identification and analysis of emotions in journalistic and parajournalistic media content and social media commentaries. The workshop aims to bring together academics who, through innovative research approaches, face the challenge of analysing emotions and affects in media texts.
