Recent Trends in Event Data Analysis of Latin American Politics

Mon, May 1, 6:00 to 7:45pm, TBA

Session Submission Type: Workshop


The use of "event data"—data sets of political and social events usually compiled from news media sources—has become increasingly popular in sociology and political science. In this workshop, practitioners of event data analysis will share their experiences of developing event data in Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and other Latin American countries. They will discuss the application of this methodology in the analysis of contentious politics and social movements in Latin America, pros and cons as well as potentials and limitations of such data, and recent innovations in the field.
