Are you looking for ways to gather, capture or transcribe a set of digital works for further analysis? Does your digital text collection need preparation to be understood by software? Do you need a tool to conduct sentiment, discourse, content analysis or mapping with newspaper, literature or historical texts you've gathered for a research project? This information session introduces digital methods and tools in HASS scholarship and focusses on the following in the Digital Humanities workflow: • Build - Locate and gather textual data for your corpora or data set • Prepare - Explore processes and tools to prepare textual data for analysis, including transcription tools and data recognition (OCR) to ensure machine readability • Analyse - Identify different types of analysis used to interrogate content and uncover new insights; explore text analysis and digital mapping tools as well tools such as Voyant used to visualise your outputs.
