Abstract

This workshop will introduce attendees to text analysis research and the common methods and tools used in this emerging area of scholarship, with particular attention to the HathiTrust Research Center.

Topics include: introduction to gathering, managing, analyzing, and visualizing textual data; hands-on experience with text analysis tools, including the HTRC's off-the-shelf algorithms and datasets, such as the HTRC Extracted Features; and using the command line to run basic text analysis processes. No experience necessary! Attendees must bring a laptop.
