Amsterdam Text Analysis Conference

The Amsterdam Text Analysis Workshop  will take place 21 and 22 June 2016, and is organized by Gijs Schumacher and Martijn Schoonvelde.

The conference brings together scholars to exchange and discuss best practices in applied work, new methodologies and findings from text analysis, with a substantive focus on public opinion, elite communication or party politics.

Many thanks to EUENGAGE and the Chair of Multilevel Governance (Vrije University Amsterdam) for funding this event.

Note: we will update this page in the coming weeks. Please email us if you have any questions.



The conference will take place at tHuis aan de Amstel. It is a nice and quiet place in the south of Amsterdam. With good weather we will eat in the garden!

To get there take the metro to Spaklerweg. Except for the Green line, all metros stop at Spaklerweg (metro map). Here is how you walk from the station to the location (5 minute walk max).
