Text Analysis Across Disciplines: Text Mining Boot CampCentral European University, 2017/2018 fall
The goal of this course is to provide training in text mining simultaneously on two distinct levels. The material from both levels should be accessible and useful to social scientists as well as humanists, as strategies such as text mining, content analysis, sentiment analysis and entity extraction are becoming fundamental to research on large and diverse digital corpora.
The basic level is offered with no prerequisites, and is designed for students from the humanities or from qualitative social science backgrounds who are interested in learning the fundamentals of text analysis using computational methods.
The more advanced level of the boot camp is designed for students who have some exposure to statistically-informed methods and query languages and would like to apply these methods to the computational and statistical analysis of texts.
