Welcome to Humlab's Tech Breakfast on Thursday 14/3. Coffee and breakfast will be served from 08.00. On Thursday, we will present and discuss four different texts on the theme "Trends in text analysis".
The amount of digitized text collection continuous to increase parallel to the development of sophisticated methods to study text as large-scale data. The theme for this Tech Breakfast concerns how such robust computational methods can be operationalized within the framework of equally robust theories developed in the humanities – concerning discourses, literary form, language use and more.
You find links to some of the texts below (the two chapters in Pipers book are unfortunately not available online). You are not required to have read the texts to participate in the discussions.
