R for Social Science: Virtual Workshop
October 13 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
The UWM Libraries Digital Humanities Lab will host a virtual workshop on R for Social Science, October 13-14, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day.
R is a powerful and free programming language and environment for data analysis, data mining, and visualization. This workshop will use RStudio, a free integrated development environment that loads on a user’s desktop, making programming in R much easier.
We will be working with instructors from the Data Carpentries, a community of researchers and instructors with a mission to “provide researchers high-quality, domain-specific traning covering the full lifecycle of data-driven research.” A rough outline of the workshop can be found here: https://datacarpentry.org/r-socialsci/
No prior knowledge or skills with R or RStudio are required to join the workshop. This workshop will be especially helpful for anyone interested in working with textual and spatial data, especially data collected for social science, humanities, and cultural heritage research. Please contact Ann Hanlon with any questions.
