Text Analysis and Visualization

Computer-aided analysis offers a new way of looking at texts, whether they be classic works of literature or modern interview transcripts, a lifetime of letters or the full run of a newspaper. This session will introduce the basics of text analysis with Voyant, an easy-to-use analysis tool. Participants will gain hands-on experience loading different formats of text into Voyant and parsing the resulting analysis. No prior technical experience required.
