About this Event
Most of the time we think of text as content, but what if we treated it like data instead? Using the process of text mining, researchers can draw new conclusions about a body of text.
During this virtual workshop, explore the basic concepts and methodologies of text mining. Through an interactive discussion and question-and-answer session, you will discover where text mining fits into your research area and how to get started on a text-mining project.
In advance of the workshop, those registered to attend will receive a research guide on text mining and a demo of Voyant Tools, a basic text-mining web tool. You are encouraged to watch the demo and play with the tool before the session so that you can bring your questions to the workshop. During the workshop, you’ll have additional time to explore the tool with guidance from Digital Scholarship Librarian Kayla Abner.
This workshop is open to UD students, faculty and staff. Those in the humanities and social sciences who are interested in learning a new research method for text-based content are encouraged to attend.
Registration is required. Once registered, you will receive an email with details on how to join the workshop via Zoom.
