Abstract The overall vision of this project is to harness state-of-the-art Cultural Analytics approaches and technologies to make pioneering analytical forays into the vast corpus of machine-readable Arabic texts that has become available in the last two decades. It also aims to digitize and annotate a set of early Arabic media material from the late 19th century until the present. The project has the potential to be beneficial for Qatar as well as for Arab countries interested in examining cultural, social and historical trends and movements.
