Hands on History session with Anna Baczkowska, visiting researcher at the C²DH.

The presentation shows the results of Anna Bączkowska's research conducted at the University in Luxembourg over the last three months. It focuses on the analysis of immigration discourse retrieved from social media created by Polish immigrants to Luxembourg. The analysis is based on the polska.lu forum which spans the last 15 years. The data were extracted both manually and automatically; thus, three subcorpora were created. The language used by forum interactants was investigated with the aid of corpus linguistics tools in order to notice some trends and tendencies in lexical choices of the forum users as well as the prevailing topics.
