This workshop will provide an introduction to computer-assisted text analysis, and introduce participants to Voyant, an online text analysis tool. This workshop is aimed at those humanities scholars who are uncertain as to why or how they would use digital tools in their scholarly practice, or those who are interested in the possibilities of computer-assisted text analysis but are unsure where to start or what it can produce. We will cover these fundamental questions, and then participants can try their hand at using a digital tool – the online text analysis software Voyant – to produce some analyses and data visualizations.
Note: Please bring your fully charged laptop to this workshop.
