Exploring the “Fukushima Effect”

Contributing FAU Organizations

Previous interdisciplinary collaborations have brought together cultural studies and communication science (for small-­scale manual comparative studies of political discourse) as well as corpus linguistics and computer science (with highly successful practical applications such as data mining of Twitter feeds). However, a genuine integration of qualitative, contextualized and theoretically situated approaches with the automatic quantitative analysis of large-­scale data – the research goals of EFE – can only be achieved by a tightly interwoven collaboration of researchers from computer science and computational linguistics on the one hand and hermeneutic interpreters from communication science and cultural studies on the other.
