Wor(l)ds Lab is part of the exhibition UAM50 at the City Hall of Madrid

Wor(l)ds Lab is part of the exhibition at the Centro Centro (City Hall) celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.

MarcoPolo, the web for surfing the words used on Twitter by the political parties, has been chosen as one of the projects representing the research of the UAM. Visitors will have the opportunity to try it in a computer that has been installed in the exhibition.

Besides, Ana Ruiz-Sánchez will present our research group on November 29 (7:30 p.m.). For this occasion, she has chosen two of our lines of research. On the one hand, she will talk about MarcoPolo and the study of online political discourses. On the other, she will talk about the ethical and scientific challenges that we face when studying multilingualism.
