Aims/Description: This module introduces students to the fundamentals of computer-assisted approaches to text analysis. It will be of interest to Arts and Humanities students who are undertaking research into any area of literary, historical, or text-based research (ie. novels, letters, historical documents etc.). It has particular relevance for students who wish to understand how digital technologies can augment their research practice and expertise. Students will be introduced to a range of digital tools and packages, such as stylometry, topic modelling, and network analysis, that will facilitate their work in text mining, and the interpretation of data-driven results.
