R for Literature Scholars [Online]

Computational analysis, also known as distant reading, provides access to information or insights about a text that would be nearly impossible to gather using methods of close reading and “manual” synthesis. This workshop is based on Matthew Jockers’ book “Text Analysis with R for Students of Literature”. We will provide an introduction to computational text analysis using the programming language R and look at 1-2 analysis techniques based on word frequency. 

This workshop is for beginners.
