Text Analysis with JSTOR & Portico’s Constellate

This is a past event.

Text analysis is the process of examining texts to discover new information or answer specific research questions using algorithms that quickly identify facts, relationships, and patterns in a body of texts. This information can be converted into structured forms for visualization using charts, graphs, mind maps, word clouds, and more.

This workshop will introduce Constellate by JSTOR and Portico, a text and data mining platform that enables digital humanities scholars to do text and data analysis while building coding skills. The platform provides coding lessons and text and data mining templates using Python, a coding environment (Jupyter Notebooks), and access to a growing number of publications (JSTOR, participating Portico publishers, Chronicling America, and more). Participants will learn how the platform can be used to build, download, and analyze datasets.

This workshop is part of our Digital Humanities Toolkit Series.

Thursday, September 23 at 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
