This paper was written at the Digital Methods summer school in 2019. My contributions were the interactive topic models used to explore the content of YouTube video transcripts, and find common themes in these transcripts. They were made with Bokeh in Python, after preprocessing and lemmatization of the tokens in the transcripts.
We found some common topics and wordclusters in the transcripts, useful for further analysis:
