Virtual Event

November 16th and 18th 2022, 11am-12pm

Come learn basic Python coding skills through JSTOR’s Constellate text analysis platform. We will utilize Jupyter Notebooks (a web-based coding tool) to analyze textual data contained in document collections such as JSTOR, Portico, Chronicling America, Reveal Digital, and more. This hands-on workshop will be divided into two sessions. Part one (Nov. 16) will introduce Constellate’s website and dataset builder. Part two (Nov. 18) will introduce basic Python and Jupyter Notebook skills to perform analysis on our previously built Constellate datasets. No previous experience with coding or text analysis is assumed or required!
