Zero Code Digital Humanities Text Analysis (Duke Graduate Academy short course)

This course is about analyzing texts via computational means and interpreting the results of that analysis. While it is geared toward practitioners of the digital humanities, the methods students learn here are broadly useful across disciplines. Topics will include preparing texts for research (acquisition, OCR, organization), corpus analytics, natural language processing, sentiment analysis and document classification, and topic modeling. This is a “zero-code” course, meaning that no programming or command-line usage is required. We’ll explore text analysis in a rigorous but approachable way by removing some of the technological friction that can slow our engagement with the digital humanities.

About Duke Graduate Academy

Duke Graduate Academy provides online short courses that introduce Duke graduate and professional students and postdoctoral fellows to skills, tools, and knowledge that augment their regular coursework and research. These short courses help emerging scholars prepare for high-level research, innovative teaching, leadership, and/or public engagement.

Courses in the Duke Graduate Academy cover topics not typically included in a graduate curriculum, or provide an intensive introduction for graduate students and postdocs who might not have the time or inclination to pursue a full course in a subject. Instructors are Duke faculty as well as highly trained Duke staff and Ph.D. students.

The Graduate Academy welcomes all current/active doctoral, master’s and professional students at any stage of their studies as well as all postdoctoral fellows. There are no prerequisites for any of the courses.
