Register for Stokes Viz Hub "Introduction to Text Analysis"

We will discuss:

  • Why is text analysis useful for research today?

  • What is needed to get started with text analysis?

  • What methods to get stated with text analysis?

  • How long does it take to learn various text analysis methods?

Along the way, we will create a dataset using the Constellate Platform and consider what it may reveal.
