FULLY BOOKED - Digital Humanities Workshop: Introduction to Text Analysis with R

A Digital Humanities workshop
Date22 November 2019
Time10:30 to 16:30
PlaceForum Seminar Room 08

Sign up required. This workshop will introduce methods of computational text analysis with the R programming language. Text analysis uses computer programs to process and manipulate textual datasets large and small, and to visualise various aspects of language, including linguistics calculations, stylistic analysis, and network connections. The workshop is intended for humanists at varied levels of expertise, emphasising practical approaches and the interpretive questions arising from such work. How can text analysis enhance literary criticism? How can it be used to understand broad historical trends? The method of instruction will involve well-curated, commented R code notebooks in RStudio, an integrated development environment that aids R training. By the end of the workshop, attendees will have a basic understanding of R and a roadmap for the various routes that text analysis research can take.

by Dr Christopher Ohge, Institute of English Studies, SAS.

No previous experience with programming is expected, but before the workshop, attendees must download R (https://cran.r-project.org/mirrors.html), and RStudio Desktop (https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/).
