Python is a programming language that is well-suited to working with textual data: it has a clear syntax, it's easy to learn, and there are many libraries available for processing text. We'll use some of its capabilities in this workshop as we discover how to code our own tools for analyzing individual texts and textual corpora. Note: This workshop does not assume any previous experience with Python, and it will include a brief but gentle introduction to the language itself. Like other workshops in the series, its goal is to match research questions with methods rather than to labor technical details.
