Discrimination and radicalization: A project with google data


This Wednesday we have an interesting presentation by Friedolin Merhout, a new Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology. Friedolin uses computational and experimental methods to examine intergroup relations leveraging digital trace, text, survey, and administrative data. At Forskningskollektivet, he will present a research project that uses Google search data to investigate the relationship between discrimination and radicalization. The project illustrates how digital trace data can shed led on phenomena hard to analyze using conventional social science methodology.
