Investigating the Societal Impact of the Humanities
Yegór Osipov-Gipsh, Ivan Kisjes, Giovanni Colavizza, Julia Noordegraaf (UvA-CREATE)

CREATE Salon 21 January 2021 (15:00-16:00)

The Humanities contribute to society in many different ways; most of them are indirect and thus hard to measure. While there are good reasons for this state of affairs, at CREATE we are investigating whether we can quantify and qualify a specific form of impact: work on timely issues and open societal challenges. At this salon, we will share early results on using the Dutch NARCIS scientific repository to map topics discussed in humanities literature and track whether they cover pressing societal issues, as discussed in the leading newspapers of the Netherlands. This salon will serve as an opportunity to get your feedback and discuss this timely topic, as well as to exchange our plans for the future.

Topics to be discussed:

  1. Approach and method
  2. Corpus (academic articles & printed news media)
  3. Partially labeled topic modelling
  4. Analysis of media corpus using keywords
  5. Qualitative analysis of the topic of migrants integration (academic + media)
  6. Next steps
  7. Questions and discussion
