Applications are invited for participation in a series of advanced institutes on text analysis, sponsored by the Northeastern University Women Writers Project with generous funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. These events introduce teachers and researchers at varied levels of expertise to the text analysis methods and interpretive questions arising from word embedding models, which represent connections between words as computable spatial relationships. These institutes explore practical techniques and also interpretive outcomes, working with simple, open-access web tools hosted in the Women Writers Project Lab.
This program includes four institutes, of which one has already taken place in July 2019 [https://wwp.northeastern.edu/outreach/seminars/wem_2019-07/]. The remaining events are:
Both the introductory and intensive events are intended to stand on their own, although participants are welcome to attend both, space permitting. Each event is followed by a period of virtual discussion, consultation, and support. Participants will share research and teaching outcomes including syllabi, assignments, blog posts, and research papers.
Each institute begins with a three-day in-person event, followed by a three-month period of virtual discussion and consultation with WWP staff and fellow participants to ensure that these challenging concepts and techniques can be thoroughly internalized. Participants will be encouraged to share research and teaching outcomes (syllabi, assignments, blog posts, research papers) and will be given the opportunity to post preliminary results and work in progress on the WWP blog.
