The focus is on text analysis using the popular scripting language Python, which is rapidly becoming the standard programming language for computational text analysis in digital Humanities.
Covered topics include: basic text processing tasks; using text-mining toolkits such as Pattern and NLTK; applications of text processing (e.g., sentiment mining, topic classification, automatic clustering); XML parsing (e.g., TEI-XML) in Python.
For the workshop, the instructors will make use of a so-called Python notebook – a successful and engaging teaching format. Python notebooks are a course book and coding ‘sandbox’ at once. Experience with previous EADH and DARIAH-DE Summer Schools in Nijmegen and Göttingen has shown that this format is extremely engaging for researchers who have had no significant exposure to digital methods yet.Find out more »
