Using the Distant Reader

Oct 5, 2021

11:00am – noon

247 Hesburgh Library, Navari Family Center for Digital Scholarship

Learn how to automatically read and analyze arbitrarily large corpora of textual materials.

The Distant Reader (a locally written system) can accept, as input, large volumes of URLs or any number of files from your computer. It then creates a corpus from the input, converts it into plain text, does natural language processing against the plain text, and outputs sets of reports enabling you to use and better understand the corpora. Useful to anyone across campus who needs to read large volumes of materials, this hands-on workshop will help you take control of your content.

Please bring your laptop to the session.
