My research interests typically concern discourse(s) and communication in relation to social media and politics. I am also active in research on visual communication, multimodality, semiotics, critical applied linguistics, educational philosophy and the social psychology of power dynamics within formal institutional structures. I have authored and edited several international peer-reviewed books published in London, New York and Berlin as well as many peer-reviewed journal articles. My research profile can be found at:

Achievements

Political Twitter Discourse Corpus (PTDC)

談話指示の言語資料ツールとして、”政治的談話コーパス (PTDC) “を開発し、ツイッター上で展開される政治的ツイートの分析、とりわけ、キーワードを用いた比較分析に用いている。PTDCは最新のツイートの原文(リツイートは含まず、ユーザー1人につき最高3000ツイート)で構成され、その全てはアメリカの州知事、国会議員、議会議員によるものである。PTDCは、205,303ツイート、4,659,381語を収録している。

コーパス: https://www.damianrivers.com/ptdc/

The Political Twitter Discourse Corpus (PTDC) was created for use as a discourse reference corpus tool in the focused analysis of political discourse occurring on Twitter - particularly for comparative keyword analyses. It is comprised of the most recent original tweets (i.e., not inclusive of retweets, up to a maximum of 3000 per user) of all current US state governors, members of congress and senators. The PTDC consists of 205,303 individual tweets and 4,659,381 words.
