*Beyond Control + F: Text Mining Across the Disciplines *Symposium and
Workshop (1 February 2016)

Keynotes: Laura Mandell (Texas A&M) and Andrew Goldstone (Rutgers)

Are you curious about text mining, but not sure how to get started?

Are you familiar with the basics of text mining, but interested in learning
new strategies and approaches?

As the number of digitized and born-digital texts increase, so too do the
possibilities for large-scale analysis. Many scholars in the humanities and
social sciences, however, have not been trained in the methodologies that
would allow them to take advantage of these new strategies for text
analysis. *Text Mining Across the Disciplines* is a one-day conference on
text mining aimed both at those new to the field and those with more
experience. The day’s events include both keynotes by scholars using text
mining in their research and a series of workshops aimed at guiding
participants through key strategies and approaches to text mining. The
workshops are designed to be cumulative, and over the course of the day
participants will have an opportunity to collect a small data set, clean
that data, mine the data, and visualize their results.

Workshops:
-Finding Your Corpus
-Getting your data ready to mine
-Text Mining Strategies and Methodologies

A more detailed schedule to follow.

Sponsored by the University of Michigan Library, ProQuest, and the U-M
Institute for the Humanities.
