All welcome


This session will focus on a range of approaches in digital text analysis, which often involves computational or statistical analysis, "distant reading" and visualisation of patterns in text, whether involving linguistics or pure vocabulary frequency. As a user-friendly illustration of many of these approaches we will introduce the Voyant Tools suite, which includes a wide range of visualisation tools in a web-based interface. Examples of text analysis on both English and ancient texts will be shown, and an exercise offered for students to practice some of the methods discussed.
