CAT CLAWS: TEXT ANALYSIS TOOLS WORKSHOP

November 13 @ 11:05 am - 12:05 pm

Free - $25

CANCELLED due to illness.

In this 2-part session on Tuesday (11/13) & Thursday (11/15), learn to use the Wolfram Language (Mathematica) to uncover hidden patterns in texts. Known as distant reading, text mining, or digital text analysis, the methods introduced in this workshop enjoy broad use in the humanities and social sciences. Participants in this beginning workshop will apply text-mining techniques and sentiment analysis in order to break down, analyze and transform well-known novels and corpora of Tweets.

No prerequisite knowledge necessary.

Topics include:

  • Basic programming in the Wolfram Language
  • Text mining
  • Sentiment analysis
  • Data visualization

About the instructor: Dr. Jakub (Kuba) Kabala is a professor in the History department and the Digital Studies program. His teaching and research span the history and archaeology of Europe in the Middle Ages as well as digital research methods in the humanities.

CAT CLAWS workshops are interactive and grounded in project-based problem solving. You’ll work with real data and address real-world challenges with one of the most commonly used tools in Data Analytics.
