Upcoming conference on “Computational Text Analysis and Historical Change”

One of the DIGARV-projects, Welfare State Analytics. Text Mining and Modeling Swedish Politics, Media & Culture, 1945-1989 (WeStAc), is part of organizing an international conference in September 2019 at the digital humanities hub, Humlab (Umeå University) on computational methods and historical research. Considering the possibility to process large amounts of text data through methods as probabilistic topic models or word embeddings, how can historical transformations of culture and society be empirically measured in novel ways?
