Technology’s role in modernisation and globalisation via computational research methods
The EU-funded GLOTECH project comprises a study of the role of technology in processes of modernisation and globalisation using the press, big data and computational research methods. It will explore the role of technology as a factor of time standardisations in Western industrialised societies as well as a booster of cultural homogenisation, and as a consequence, an agent of modernisation and globalisation. The analysis will focus on the press in European countries, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The methodology will include different computational research methods, contributing to significant advances in digital humanities and computational social sciences.
