Text Analysis Learn-a-Thon Online

Join members of the Digital Scholarship Lab and Digital Humanities at MSU community to learn about text analysis together. This Learn-a-thon is a time to share your interest in text analysis as a method and to experiment, dive-in, and/or test out tools and approaches that can further your research and teaching.

After community introductions, we will go into co-working sessions based on the group’s interests. This may include working through a tutorial together, sharing knowledge about a certain method, or exploring a tool such as Voyant, Constellate, etc. Topics covered may include python, nltk, and topic modelling, but we can and will explore others as desired.

ALL ARE WELCOME, from any department or discipline and regardless of student/staff/faculty status. All levels of experience are welcome. You are encouraged to bring your own dataset, but we will also have datasets available for experimentation and play.

This Learn-a-thon may form the basis for an MSU community of practice or learning community around text analysis, if the group desires to continue activities after July 29. If you are interested in such a group but are unable to join this Learn-a-Thon, email Kate Topham (tophamka@msu.edu).
