Computational Approaches for Text Preparation and Analysis

Computational Approaches for Text Preparation and Analysis Online

Are you interested in textual analysis but unsure about where to start? Join us for an interactive “no experience required” introduction to the fundamental concepts, processes, and methodological approaches for preparing and analyzing text using computational approaches. Following a general introduction to the topic, participants will be guided through prepared exercises that demonstrate how different software packages (OpenRefine, Python) can be used to prepare for and perform textual analysis.

*Presented by Jay Brodeur (Associate Director, Digital Scholarship Infrastructure & Services and Administrative Director of the Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship) and Devon Mordell (Educational Developer, The MacPherson Institute for Teaching and Learning). This virtual workshop will be recorded and shared on the Sherman Centre's website.
