Social media offers rich terrain for academic research, and despite many social media companies’ claims to be working on methods of opening up access to data for researchers, the reality is that companies like Twitter are making discovery and use of data more challenging and more expensive. Join the GC Digital Fellows as they host Jo Lukito, Assistant Professor (UT Austin) for a conversation about practical approaches to doing research with social media data at this moment. Dr. Lukito’s research specializes in malicious political language in the public sphere, focusing on cross-platform flows of messages and frames about global economic and political issues. Methodologically, she specializes in computational and quantitative methods analyzing mass communicated text, including corpus and computational linguistics, natural language processing, human and automated content analysis, and text-as-data strategies. She holds Ph.D minors in English Language & Linguistics and Political Science (methodology & IR).
