DATE CHANGE--Introduction to Text Mining in R In-Person / Online

More and more research incorporate text into their projects.  This workshop is a gentle introduction for researchers wanting to use text as data.  We will use the US Constitution as our text and focus on bringing the data into R, preprocessing the data and exploring word frequencies and some basic clustering.

We will not go into any deep analysis of the data.

Some familiarity with R will be helpful but we’ll take an introductory approach so R beginners are welcome!


Any student who participates in at least 3 library workshops during the fall 2022 semester will be eligible for a prize. Learn more about the Workshop Incentive Program.
