Description

Text Analysis is a growing method of research that uses algorithms to quickly search through a large corpus to generate word clouds, identify major themes, recognize relationships between words, and more. We will utilize Voyant, an open source software, to learn the basics of text analysis and how it can be used in research.

Participants will be able to utilize multiple text analysis tools within Voyant, list the benefits and limitations of using a digital text analysis tool, and brainstorm ways text analysis could be incorporated into their research.

Facilitators: Chelsea Heinbach, Teaching & Learning Librarian, and Hilla Sang, Data Visualization & GIS Specialist

The event is part of the University Libraries' Faculty and Graduate Student Workshop Series
