A Topic-Network Approach to the Mass Media Representation of Pandemic Threats (TOPNET)

Project no.: PP59/2016

Project description:

This project applies a novel methodology that combines topic models and network analysis for assessing and comparing the mediatisation of pandemic crises: the 2010 H1N1 influenza pandemic and the 2020 SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic.
