R workshop in Trondheim, Norway

Recently, I was invited to run a workshop on Quantitative Content Analysis with R and RStudio, thanks to Peter Maurer (NTNU). This all started when we both invited to Canada. Ending up at the hotel bar, talking about political communication, research and everything related. One thing led to another, and last week I ended up in Trondheim. I did my keynote about topic modeling of newspaper articles and social media texts, and an afternoon and morning session on R and quantitative content analysis with a very nice group of (PhD) students.

Again, thanks to Peter Maurer and all the others that made this possible. It was a joy to be in Trondheim!

PS. be sure to check out Rockheim museum, showing the history of Norwegian pop music. Two of my favorite artists are among them: Terje Rypdal and Jan Garbarek. Be sure to check them out.

Teaching at FH Wien

Returning from Indonesia on Thursday morning I transferred (a first for me: transferring at Airport Amsterdam) to a plane to Vienna. The Fachhochschule Wien invited me to do a one-day course on the transformation of media. I arrived on Thursday, and later met up with Uta Russmann. It was a pleasure to meetup with you again.
On Friday I met up with the students, a sizeable group of appr 35. I had fun doing it, and the students seemed to like it too.
Never too old to learn, I was able to brush up my German language skills again.
A big thank you to the people involved in getting me to Vienna.
Only one day to go, then back to home. It’s good I still have a jet lag from getting back from Indonesia, so boarding the plane at 6:30 should not be a problem ūüôā

In Indonesia again

This Thursday I returned from a two week trip to Indonesia. The second week on Monday I performed a small workshop on online research. The day after I attended the mini symposium in Jakarta, organized by Hendriyani from the University of Indonesia.
I presented a paper in progress about the news consumption by millennials compared to other generations.
I met with some journalists (CNN (not an official subsidiary), NET). The team from NET. made a video recording interviewing me about social media and fake news during the upcoming presidential election campaign in Indonesia. Let’s see whether they will air it.
Anyhow, it was a nice trip again. Hope to be back again ūüôā
