Location: Aarhus, Denmark

Focus: “Text Mining the Great Unread” is an introductory level course to text mining tools and methods in the humanities and social sciences, which will supply participants with sufficient knowledge and experience to develop and implement their own text mining projects. Text mining enables students to extract high quality information and acquire new knowledge in a fast and efficient manner, and enhances the qualifications of students for a data-driven job market that is relying on the very same tools and methods.
Minimum Education Level: Undergraduate

Description:
The core of the course is a series of hands-on workshops supplemented by lectures and tutorials by international researchers and industry experts. Through the course, participants will become familiar with text mining methods and software for analyzing and visualizing texts. Participants will learn how to write their own text mining application in R and Python. Through the workshops, participants will also be presented with a range of paradigmatic studies and go through explain research design, best practice, and reporting standards. It is possible to work with one’s own corpus, but historical and contemporary corpora (both works of fiction, historical documents and websites) are also available in class. Participants are not expected to have prior experience with text mining (i.e., programming, statistics, or visualization).
