Tantrums and Traitors: A Diachronic Analysis of Emotions in Parliamentary Debates on War Criminals and Collaborators

Onderzoeksoutput: Bijdrage aan conferentieAbstractWetenschappelijk

Samenvatting

In this study emotions in discussions about the punishment of collaborators and war criminals in the Netherlands are investigated by analysing the verbatim minutes of parliament. The application of text mining techniques to this digitised historical text corpus allows for a diachronic perspective on a historical case study. With this paper, I present the historical case, the materials and techniques used, and some insights based on preliminary results. I will also address general advantages and limitations of using text mining in historical research. Aim of this investigation is to explicitly investigate and discuss the validity of the use of emotion lexicons in diachronic historical research.
