Re: QUERY: Online Resources & Archives for Research on Latin America "remote"

Dear Laura,

You may need to be a bit more specific about the type of resources that you are seeking. In my experience a good point to start is checking what universities in Bolivia have already done about the topic - typically research produced within Latin American academia is open access. Getting in touch with the researchers or research groups can also help get a better picture of what you may be able to find. Public libraries/archives usually have some online materials, again my experience is that of a large variation between countries, insitutions and topics.

Re: Question: Good Corpus Analysis Software for Chinese Language?

I would recommend DocuSky. You can build your own database collection of texts, attach your own metadata, and search for thousands of word colocations, thus 社, 社會,社會群, and get outputs that you can process in Palladio and other useful search softwares. It has a host of tools. I agree with Elena Valussi above, Digital Sinology is good
