Computational Humanities Series: Text Analysis
February 24 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Presented by Ann Hanlon, UWM Libraries; Karl Holten, UWM Libraries and L&S Web and Data Services; and Dan Siercks, UWM L&S Web and Data Services.
The identification of meaningful patterns and anomalies across large bodies of text has long been a central concern of the Digital Humanities. Text analysis, text mining, and topic modeling are all tools employed by researchers to clean, mark up, parse, analyze, and visualize word frequencies, patterns, and relationships. In this workshop, we’ll look at some exemplar text analysis projects in the Humanities, check out tools like Voyant that can provide an entry to working with text, and develop an understanding of what text analysis, text mining, topic modeling, and other terms of art mean, and the methodologies that inform this work. There is no prerequisite to join this workshop – we welcome all skill levels and avenues of interest!
This event is offered both online and in person, Digital Humanities Lab, second floor east wing, Golda Meir Library, 2311 E. Hartford Ave., Milwaukee.
