Workshop: Text Analysis in R

Wed, Feb 20, 2019, 10:30 am

This workshop introduces the basic infrastructure for statistical text processing in R using the quanteda package. We will focus on corpus construction, and exploratory data analysis. Time permitting we will discuss tools for text acquisition and cleaning.

Prerequisites

The workshop will assume basic R competence.

Audience

This workshop is for anyone interested in working with small to medium sized bodies of text, that is, small enough to fit in memory but too large to work with individually, e.g. hundreds of thousands of newspaper articles. 

If you are not a politics graduate student, please send email to qaps@princeton.edu that you are planning to attend, so we can ensure enough space in the room.
