Join us for a virtual workshop to learn text analysis with Voyant tools! (hosted by Connecticut College via the CT Digital Scholarship Exchange)

Light-weight Text Analysis with Voyant Tools (Connecticut College)

Thursday, October 5, 1:30 – 2:30 pm | Davis Lab or Zoom

Voyant Tools is an open source, web-based application for lightweight text analysis. It functions as a one-stop shop, offering an easy to use interface that processes text in seconds, organizing it into a series of interactive lists, charts, graphs, and networks. The application allows users to play with the resulting visualizations, to explore the text from different angles, such as word clouds, term frequency lists, frequency distribution plots, and keyword in context. With no background knowledge or skills necessary, Voyant Tools is conducive to incorporating text analysis activities into the undergraduate classroom to facilitate reading and interpretive practices. This workshop offers a hands-on tour of the web-based application using pre-established textual corpora.
