14 Feb Legal Testimony Content Analysis Intern
internship0001699 The Martin Buber Society of Fellows in the Humanities
This research facility is a German Foundation financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It is is situated at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The research facility is aimed at creating a creative, vibrant scholarly environment for outstanding young scholars in all fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
The project analyzes legal testimonies of mass atrocity victims using algorithms of automated content analysis (specifically topic modeling). It offers a novel engagement with acts of testimony, conceptualizing them as big data. Intern would assist with this project.
The intern should have passion for understanding the complexities of conflict-based narratives and knowledge of coding and preferably more specifically topic modeling techniques. Previous experience with python, matlab or more specifically Mallet is good – but really, any basic knowledge of coding and working with command line is enough, for the preliminary stage of the study.
