Text Analysis Workshop with Lexos

I would look to offer a workshop on text analysis with Lexos. Lexos is a browser-based suite of tools that provides an easy entry to computational text analysis for humanities scholars and students. Situated within a clean and simple interface, Lexos provides a complete workflow from “scrubbing” texts to prepare them for analysis either by one of Lexos’ analytic tools or another text analysis tool like MALLET. Lexos provides a number of ways analyzing and visualizing text content with a particular emphasis on clustering methods to explore similarities between texts (or parts of texts). It is easy to learn and useful in the classroom as well as for scholarship.

The workshop will provide a hands on demonstration using sample texts. Anyone with a computer and an internet connection will be able to follow along.
