Text Analysis and Manipulation with Voyant

Edge + Digital Scholarship Events - Wed, 04/29/2015 - 19:00
Wed, Apr 29, 2015: 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Edge: Digital Studio

Join Dr. Stewart Varner (UNC Libraries) and artist libi rose striegl (Duke MFA in Documentary Arts) for an interactive introduction to Voyant. Created by literary scholars Stéfan Sinclair and Geoffrey Rockwell, Voyant is an easy to use, web-based tool for quantitative analyses on digitized texts. It can also be productively ‘hacked’ to perform provocative artistic – and research-grounded critically inquisitive – deformations and reformations of text. In addition to learning how to use the tool to perform basic text mining and text comparison functions, participants will hear how libi has used Voyant to directly interact with texts and as a means to extract data for the purposes of experimental/structural animation.
