Pillarisation and Depillarisation of Dutch Society tested in Digitized Media Historical Sources

Project Description

An interdisciplinary digital humanities study will be performed combining classical historical and political communication research with methods coming form computer sciences (data mining). Goal is to analyze the long term relation between politics and media. The research focuses on analyzing big data sets based on historical media sources (newspapers, magazines; mainly based on collections of Royal Library in The Hague) and related material connected to political culture (political journals, proceedings of parliament). It tries to contribute to a long running historical debate about pillarization in Dutch History. Arguably, there have been close connections of political and media organizations on a personal, organizational and content-driven level. This project analyzes and presents the relation between politics and media in a broad period; during and after pillarization in the Netherlands (1910-2000). Central is the supposed transition from politisation of media to mediatisation of politics.
