PhD Defense: 'Cultural narratives about Santiago de Compostela: automatic analysis techniques using Natural Language Processing'

The preconception that people have of a place significantly determines not only their desire to visit it, but also their practices and behaviours during the visit. This preconception is usually based on cultural narratives, far-reaching and impactful ideas that shape the way a place is perceived and its meaning.

The purpose of this work is to improve the ability to analyse the cultural narratives and practices that revolve around the city of Santiago de Compostela and the Camino de Santiago by applying Natural Language Processing techniques. Ultimately, the aim is to increase knowledge about these narratives and how they can condition the concrete practices of individuals.
