Duke Digital Scholarship Services invites you to join us for a new workshop on Text Analysis and Text Manipulation with Voyant on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 4:00 at the Murthy Digital Studio (Bostock Library, Level 1, West Campus, Duke University campus map)
** Please forward to your groups and departments. All are welcome (Duke and Non-Duke)! **
Following Mark Sample's Textual Hack workshop last week, Dr. Stewart Varner will show us how to use Voyant for Text Analysis and Manipulation. In this workshop, we'll continue our creative exploration of 'hacking' texts with digital analysis tools.
Join Dr. Stewart Varner (UNC, Chapel Hill) for an introduction to Voyant. Created by literary scholars Stéfan Sinclair and Geoffrey Rockwell, Voyant is an easy to use, web-based tool for quantitative analyses on digitized texts. Voyant performs several very basic text mining functions including word counts and comparative word frequency visualizations. Voyant can also be used to view specific words in context and compare word usage across multiple texts. In addition to learning how to use the tool, participants will also have a conversation about its appropriate use as part of their research methodology.
Stay tuned: DH guru Alex Gil will join us for a keynote event on March 18!
