Instructor: Jonathan P. Lamb, Associate Professor of English, University of Kansas
In this weekly summer virtual lunchtime workgroup, we will learn some of the basics of using the Python programming language to collect and study texts. Loosely following the book Applied Text Analysis with Python (O’Reilly), we will get acquainted with Python and coding, data wrangling, classification and clustering, vectorization, analysis, and visualization. After weeks 1 (“Introduction to Python Text Analysis”) and 2 (“How Words Become Numbers”), we will adjust the speed and topics based on the group’s preferences.
No programming experience is required, but participants should come with a willingness to learn and ask questions. Participants do not need to install Python on their computers (unless they want to), but they should be prepared to log into the KU VPN to access the remote server.
If you want to attend or have questions, contact the workgroup organizer, Jonathan P. Lamb (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The group will meet via Zoom on Fridays at 12pm starting June 4.
