Introduction to the Stat-JR software package

William Browne

27-02-2020

In this video, I talk about a statistical software package StatJR, that we have been developing for nearly a decade at the Centre for multi-level modelling. StatJR is meant to appeal to users of all abilities, from novices right through to experts, who might then develop their own functionality in the package. It is written in Python and has its own estimation engine which we call eStat. In this first talk I describe its main features including its interoperability with other packages. This video is part of an Online Learning Resource produced by NCRM. This is video 1 of 3. https://www.ncrm.ac.uk/resources/online/introduction_to_Stat-JR_software/



Oskar Enghoff - How to do Topic Modelling using R

29-01-2020

Oskar is a 3rd year PhD student doing his thesis on the communal and commercial manifestations of illicit drugs culture on the internet. Oskar will provide a basic overview of how to use R to do 'topic modelling', focusing on applications within social science research. Topic modelling is a machine learning approach to thematic coding of text data, where 'topics' (or themes) are automatically and inductively extracted from multiple documents which in turn are coded using these topics.

Sophie Woodward - Object interviews: getting participants to encounter and/or connect with things

06-11-2019

Sophie Woodward from The University of Manchester presents 'Object interviews: getting participants to encounter and/or connect with things' at Methods Fair 2019. Abstract: This talk outlines object interviews as a way of carrying out research into things as well as with things (as a 'material method', Woodward (2019)), as material culture is a route into exploring multiple aspects of people’s material and social lives and relationships. I outline the possibilities of object interviews in two ways; firstly as a space of encounter (where interviewees are sea-consciously and reflexively engaging with an object and their relationship to it) and secondly as a point of connection (where interviewees have a habitual, routinised relationships to the objects). The talk will then engage with ways of getting people to talk about things, as well as the possibilities and limitations of the words that people say to explore relationships that are often not verbalised.
