Can we Observe the Antagonism of These Two Communities from a Geographical Perspective?
Where do Journalists and Bloggers go?
Why is it important to ask this question?
The reception capacity of a theatre, its subsidies, its location but also its popularity affect the selection of plays which will be performed in one theatre. The Royal Court Theatre for instance does not produce the same playwrights as the small theaters located in the suburbs of London. Mapping where the journalists and the bloggers go is then another way to look at the kind of cultural discourse both these communities build.
Which Computational Tools shall we Use?
To visualise journalists and bloggers’ journeys through London, the first step consisted in retrieving automatically the latitude and the longitude of each of the performance venues mentioned in the corpus. We had then to replace these references on an online map using the programming language Python.
