Do you have too many texts and not enough time to read them closely? Curious to see how a theme or an idea changes over time, by author, or by genre? Looking for patterns and themes but not sure where to start? Join us for an introduction to topic modeling, an algorithm-based method for identifying clusters of words that appear together in a corpora of text. As we explore sample data sets, including the letters of Alexander Hamilton, we’ll discuss ways to tailor this method to your research interests and teaching. This workshop contributes to the Humanities Research Institute Critical Practice in Text Data Mining Research Cluster, and all are welcome to participate.
