NodeXL Graph for SOTU
Featured NodeXL Network: State of the Union
View an interactive version of this graph (experimental)
The 2015 State of the Union address attracted many tweets and created a large topic network. In this network the @barackobama account was the most prominent, with @whitehouse, @joniernst, and @kingsleyyy following. Take a look at these SOTU network graphs on the NodeXL Graph Gallery.

NodeXL in the University
Jana Diesner, assistant professor at the iSchool at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and her lab are using ConText in combination with NodeXL to build and analyze social and semantic networks based on structured and unstructured data from public and social media data sources. Diesner’s team has leveraged a combination of network analysis and text mining to study the social impact of public interest media, especially issue-focused documentaries. In collaboration with makers and funders of such information products, they have developed, tested and evaluated a computational solution to impact assessment that is grounded in social science theories. Their work addresses the following questions: How can we capture the social impact of storytelling in a comprehensive, rigorous and efficient fashion? How can we design for social change motivated by issue-focused public media? For more information about this research, please see these publications.

Computational Impact Assessment of Social Justice Documentaries
This paper is written by Jana Diesner, Jinseok Kim (both from the iSchool at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Susie Pak (College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at St. John’s University). They have been using ConText and NodeXL as part of their computational solution to evaluate the impact of social justice documentaries in an empirical and scalable fashion. This paper details the theoretical foundation for this research, which integrates impact indicators on the cognitive, behavioral and attitudinal level. Using the example of “The House I Live In”, a 2012 documentary directed by Eugene Jarecki about the War on Drugs, the paper also provides a case study to illustrate their approach. This work is supported by the JustFilms division at the Ford Foundation. Learn More
