Digital Parliamentary Data in Action (DIPADA 2022)

Workshop co-located with the 6th Digital Humanities in the Nordic and Baltic Countries Conference (DHNB 2022), Online
March 15, 2022, Uppsala, Sweden


Call for Papers and Participation

Recent years have seen the emergence of new digital parliamentary datasets that highlight multi-disciplinary opportunities and challenges in research. These new datasets have enabled researchers to engage in novel ways in exploring and studying parliamentary culture, media and politics, polemics and consensus, and other areas where parliamentary debates function as a lens on societal and cultural matters. At the same time, ongoing research projects have highlighted the limitations of these “first-generation” datasets in their scope, structure, and usability. This has led to demands on improvements regarding OCR-quality, metadata, markup processes, and transforming national datasets into uniform advanced data structures, such as Parla-CLARIN and Linked Data.

This has led to demands on improvements regarding OCR-quality, metadata, markup processes, and transforming national datasets into uniform advanced data structures, such as Parla-CLARIN and Linked Data.

The accessibility of parliamentary data is a democratic issue and raises questions about how such datasets can be used to empower citizen participation and enhance the transparency of political work and decision making. Hence, curation and research of parliamentary records, as well as the development of new tools and user interfaces relevant for the parliamentary data are embedded in critical societal discussions, and bear consequences from both scholarly and citizen perspectives.

These developments have led to enhanced opportunities and challenges for research and development. The workshop therefore draws together scholars across different disciplines to explore and showcase results and ongoing work on creating, publishing, and using digital parliamentary data in Digital Humanities research and applications. The aim is to foster interaction between the scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and computational sciences.
