Introduction to Analyzing Text
Tuesday, April 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM

This workshop will introduce participants to the basics of analyzing text using easy-to-use tools that do not require any programming knowledge. We will cover how to begin exploratory analyses of your text corpus using tools such as the web-based Voyant, the iPhone app Textal, and the ProtAnt program. Participants will be able to find word and phrase frequencies, see keywords in context, and examine the protoypicality of their text. This workshop is free and open to all GC students, faculty, and staff, but registration is required.
