Text Mining Practicum
PLEASE NOTE: The practicum meets once-weekly for three hours for a total of five weeks starting Friday, September 28, 2018, from 9 – 11:50 a.m. All students are required to bring a laptop running either Windows, macOS, or an Ubuntu or Red Hat/Fedora-based Linux distribution.
Dr. Aren Cambre, D.Eng '14, will be your multi-disciplinary guide through basic text mining techniques to help you derive knowledge from all kinds of works. While a "programming language" may give you pause, you don't have to be a computer scientist to learn and utilize R! In fact, R has become quite popular in the ever-growing arena of digital humanities. These skills will place you well on the way to discerning, with quantitative tools, how discourses change over time, and making quantitative claims about the most important terms, authors, or events in a changing discourse.
