The Social Media Observatory (SMO) of the Hamburg section of the Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC) is organizing a beginners' workshop on Telegram.

The workshop will take place online and is aimed at people who are interested in integrating computational social science (CSS) with a focus on social media into their research agenda, but have little experience with it.
23 January from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m.
The authors of the special issue "Telegram in der politischen Öffentlichkeit" [Telegram in the Political Public Sphere] are invited to present their research in order to provide workshop participants with access and inspiration for their own research.

Among others, the following will be presented:
  • Mapping a Dark Space: Challenges in Sampling and Classifying Non- Institutionalized Actors on Telegram
  • Distribution and Reception of Conspiracy Theories and Mobilization Calls on Telegram. Combining Evidence from a Content Analysis and Survey During the Pandemic
  • The extreme right-wing and conspiracy ideology Telegram scene in Saxony. Supply and Demand of a Locally Embedded Movement

  • Out of the Channel, onto the Street! How the Querdenken Movement Organizes Its Protest on Telegram - A Quantitative Network Analysis
24 January from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
On the second day, various components of research work with Telegram data will be carried out in a hands-on method training. The aim is to enable participants to use the knowledge gained and the code provided to conduct independent research with Telegram. The three sections include
  • Data collection from Telegram data
  • Network analysis with Telegram data
  • Topic modeling with Telegram data
