Text Analysis and Visualization

During this session, we will learn about some basic text analysis skills and tools. We will start off with the browser tool Voyant to get a general sense of the content of our documents. We will then use the statistical language R (don’t let the word “statistical” scare you; you won’t be required to use advanced math in this session). We will start off by talking about how to select a corpus or text for analysis. Then we will do some hands-on with R to clean up the text, look at how word frequencies change throughout the course of the text, and create some basic visualizations. We will also take a look at some digital projects that have used R for text analysis, and talk about the methods they used to do that analysis.
