Computational Text Analysis in the Social Sciences (CTASS) is an IRiSS-sponsored inter-disciplinary student group that aims to create a space for students to learn what other students and faculty members are working on, improve our methodological and computational skills, and collaborate with one another. We maintain several channels of communication, a repository of text analysis resources, and hold a bi-weekly workshop.
The group currently has representatives from Education, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology.
There are three primary channels through which our group communicates.
- For updates about upcoming events, please join the official mailing list at mailman: firstname.lastname@example.org
- For conversations about text analysis methods, new datasets or papers, and classes at Stanford, please join the Slack channel.
- For questions for the group organizers, please send an email to the official account: email@example.com
CTASS holds bi-weekly meetings to feature cutting-edge research using computational text analysis methods. We invite current students, outside speakers, faculty members, and post-docs to discuss their research with our group, focusing on how they were able to use methods to answer their research questions.
