Mapping the war-related discourse in Croatian parliamentary debates. The graphs are part of a paper presented on workshop Postwar Politics: memory, Amnesia, and Denial in the Service of Electoral Victory organized on 20 – 21 February 2020 in Luxembourg City.

The first graph presents a 3D (interactive) visualization of semantic networks of war-related keywords used by veteran and non-veteran MPs in Croatian Sabor. The studied debates dealt with war-related issues concerning the system of benefits for Croatian war veterans and their family members. The underlying models are based on pairwise correlations computed among words (using phi coefficients) and track 55 most frequent war-related keywords used by Croatian MPs.

The second set of graphs visualizes the semantic networks of 100 most frequent uingrams used by veteran and non-veteran MPs mapping the overall prevailing discourse in both debates. War-related keywords are highlighted in grey.

Interactive sankey diagram of a topic to region transformation of letters published by Yugoslav newspaper Politika. Sankey diagram is a specific type of flow diagram, in which the width of the arrows is shown proportionally to the flow quantity. The illustration shows a sankey diagram which represents all primary topic flows into a content-based regional distribution. Data were extracted from Politka corpus as a part of ongoing research project focused on political discourse in former Yugoslavia before the outbreak of Yugoslav wars (1988 – 1991).
