Text Analysis with Python and NLTK

Theory to Practice

Congratulations! You are done with the Text Analysis workshop!

As you may expect, this course was only the beginning of your jorney. NLTK is a vast and ever expanding world. The possibilies are numerous, with exciting new things coming everyday.

Our goal was to show some of those possibilities, and equip you with enough tools/knowledge/skills to be able to keep advancing. In this page we suggest you further readings and other tutorials for which we feel you might be ready. Don’t be afraid to try! It is also useful to come back to this workshop with fresh eyes after a while. It will help you solidify some of the knowledge and make some things more clear.

Have a happy journey!

Discussion Questions

Tutorials

DHRI workshops provide a foundational comprehension of digital skills and tools often used in digital humanities and humanistic social science research. While having a strong foundation is important, there is usually more to learn if you want to get started on your own. Now that you have an awareness of the basics, here are some other tutorials to try that will extend your learning.


Further Readings

After they complete a workshop, participants often ask: what next? Here are some additional resources that can help you think about the projects that could be developed, the resources that you might need, the ways this skill could be used in the classroom, or debates in the field of digital humanities that provide context to what you have just learned.
