Projects

Algodiv

The team is involved in the activities of the Algodiv project, an ANR-funded grant active over 2016-2019 which follows the recently-achieved Algopol project (2012-15). See the website of Algodiv. logo-algodiv

Coordinated by Camille Roth, AlgoDiv (“Diversité informationnelle et recommandation algorithmique”) is an interdisciplinary project gathering sociologists and computer scientists. It aims at understanding the intertwined effect of human information consumption behavior and man-made algorithms on online informational diversity and the shape of epistemic landscapes, including the possible existence of filter bubbles.

DARIAH

DARIAH is a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC). It supports arts and humanities scholars working with computational methods. People in DARIAH provide digital tools and share data as well as know-how. They organize learning opportunities for digital research methods, like workshops and summer schools, and offer training materials for Digital Humanities. DARIAH currently connects several hundreds of scholars and dozens of research facilities in many different European countries. In addition DARIAH has strong ties to many research projects across Europe. Created in 2015 DARIAH ERIC is established for twenty years and currently has 17 member countries: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Serbia and Slovenia. The statutory seat is in Paris, France. The coordination of DARIAH activities is done by the DARIAH Coordination Office, which is based in Berlin (Centre Marc Bloch), Goettingen (University of Göttingen) and The Hague (DANS).

Aresos (Mastodons)

In 2012 the “Task force for Interdiscipinarity” of CNRS initiated the MASTODONS endeavor, focused on exploiting and analyzing Big Data. The ARESOS project emerged within this framework to specifically deal with socio-semantic data, gathering sociologists, mathematicians, linguists, computer scientists. It is coordinated by LIP6 (U. Paris VI), at CMB it involves Ségolène Charaudeau, Telmo Menezes and Camille Roth.

Qual-quant meetings

The team organizes on a regular basis a series of internal meetings on qual-quant approaches. The sessions aim at presenting the recently finished or ongoing work of the team as well as proposing methodological workshops conceived as a training to digital methods (fabrication and curation of databases, text processing, etc.), in order to trigger new qual-quant research questions at the Centre. The current program may be found here.
