RCR Forum: Acquiring and Preparing a Corpus of Texts (GS717.07)
Before you can undertake automated text analysis, it's necessary to obtain a corpus of digitized texts and, in many instances, take steps to prepare them for further processing. This hands-on digital humanities workshop focuses on the technical dimensions of corpus development. We will explore the risks and benefits of optical character recognition (OCR); file formatting and naming issues; organization strategies for large corpora; problems of data cleaning and preparation; common sources for textual research data; and common legal and ethical concerns around the use of textual corpora.
