Dear All who are interested in using SNA in textual analysis:

We have a paper (draft version yet) with a network approach to map
political discourse dynamics. It is a mix of qualitative coding and two-

statements and speech acts (that connect a set of statements) The focus
is on the dynamics in the use of positions (= network blocks of speech
acts with a typical structure in the discourse).

Here is the paper:

All comments are very appreciated,
