Vehemence and Victims: Using generic lexicons to investigate emotions in historical Dutch parliamentary debates on war victim legislation (1945-1990)

Milan van Lange; Ralf Futselaar

This working paper analyses digitized historical parliamentary debates on post-war welfare legislation for victims of the German occupation of the Netherlands. We confront a well-researched historical case with an additional, computational approach. This case also allows us to explore and evaluate the use of generic emotion lexicons in an innovative approach to historical research.
