Digital Parliamentary Data in Action (DiPaDA 2022)

  • Recent years have seen the emergence of new digital parliamentary datasets that highlight multi-disciplinary opportunities and challenges in research. The datasets have enabled researchers to engage in novel ways in studying parliamentary culture, media, politics, and societal and cultural themes, and led to the development of new tools, curated data, and user interfaces for researchers, citizens, and media. The workshop draws together scholars across different disciplines to explore results and ongoing work on creating and using digital parliamentary data in Digital Humanities research and applications.
