How is natural language processing applied in the social sciences?

Thanks for the interesting question. The overall field would generally be referred to asComputational social science. Applications of natural language processing in the computational social sciences would be similar or related to those in the Digital humanities. Techniques from both Social network analysis and Sentiment analysismay be employed in the pursuit of Quantitative research, for instance via Culturomics. Rather than ‘social science’, one might think of this as the ‘science of the social’.
