HIST 212 - Text Mining for History

(DH 212) FDR: SC
Credits: 3

This course examines how we can use new tools and techniques to study both historical documents and contemporary sources at a vastly greater scale than before. How can computers help us analyze thousands of novels? Or a century of newspaper articles? And how does doing so change what we know about history and the contemporary world? This course introduces students to the concepts and practices of text mining, such as topic modeling and natural language processing. Horowitz, Walsh.
