Data Carpentry for Humanities

Text Mining for humanists:

Join our Data Carpentry workshop from September 8th - 9th

Data Carpentry gives you the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. This workshop is aimed at students and researchers within the humanities with little to no prior computanional experience. Do you work with large sets of text data and want to learn the basics of digital text analysis/ text-mining in Python?

Python is a programming language which is ideal for humanistic research and the aim of the workshop is for you to quickly apply skills learned to your own project. Read more about this Data Carpentry workshop on our website: https://tinyurl.com/2p86y244
