The PoliMedia project is driven by research questions from historians with respect to media coverage across several types of media outlets. Cross-media comparisons will be conducted over a longer period of time, on different topics. The project will focus on the coverage of the debates in the Dutch parliament and give insight on the different choices that different media make while reporting on those debates. Also, when research can be performed with time and media type in mind, another question can be answered: Does the representation of topics and people change over time and how do the various media types differ?

The project will be carried out in three phases:

(1) a modeling phase: creating a semantic model 

(2) a data production phase: creating links to associated data sources, and

(3) an application phase: searching and navigating linked datasets
