Reading lunch: Historical Analysis of National Subjective Wellbeing, with Prof. Thomas Hills (Psychology, Warwick)

- Export as iCalendar
Location: H3.47

Thomas Hills will attend the reading lunch to discuss his work. The reading is his article 'Historical Analysis of National Subjective Wellbeing Using Millions of Digitized Books'

We present the first attempt to construct a long-run historical measure of subjective wellbeing using language corpora derived from millions of digitized books. While existing measures of subjective wellbeing go back to at most the 1970s, we can go back at least 200 years further using our methods.

A light lunch will be provided.
