Event description

Description

In this 2-hour session, we will work through the basics of R. R is an open-source programming language sometimes used by digital humanists to structure, mine, and make sense of data and text. For example, here in the Sherman Centre researchers use R to conduct sentiment analysis, geoparse texts, and create tabular data out of unstructured documents like scraped web content, archival sources, or spreadsheets. In this workshop we will talk about the uses of R for humanists before turning to some hands-on experimentation in R Studio, where will experiment with basic expressions in R using swirl.

Instructors: John Fink and Mica Jorgenson
