14:00-15:00 - Connected_Politics Seminar: Visualising Conceptual Change in Parliamentary Debates

Abstract: This work uses natural language processing to extract structured representations of contested political concepts to facilitate quantitative comparison across time and between different ideologies, with examples from Irish and UK parliamentary debates. I also present an interactive system for exploring political concepts interactively in these contexts.

Speaker: Dr Paul Nulty is a Marie-Curie CareerFit Research Fellow in CeADAR and the School of Computer Science in University College Dublin. His research focuses on applications of natural language processing to questions in digital humanities and social science. Before joining UCD, he was a Research Officer in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Research Associate on The Concept Lab project at the Centre for Research in Arts, Social Science and Humanities at the University of Cambridge.
