Global 150-Language Comparative Media Analysis With GDELT Across Text, Imagery, Audio And Video

GDELT offers unprecedented opportunities for comparative media studies spanning more than 150 languages from across the entire world across text, imagery, audio and video content. From Web NGrams 3.0 to the Television News Visual Explorer to the Visual Global Knowledge Graph to GDELT's myriad metadata datasets, there are infinite opportunities for research that helps us better understand how the media differs across the world and how the same stories are told so differently across the world's communities.

Within the US, comparing the triad of CNN, MSNBC and Fox News offers a powerful lens into the political partisanship of narratives, while looking globally the very different ways stories are told, from framing to the stories themselves are vividly evident in GDELT's datasets.

We'd love to hear more from media scholars on the kinds of questions they are most interested in exploring and the kinds of datasets that would be of greatest benefit to them.
