The Digital Liberal Arts (DLA) Programs committee is organizing a discussion forum on textual analysis, as a follow-up to Alex Wermer-Colan’s webinar on the same topic.
This event will revolve around an informal discussion among the following AMICAL colleagues who have incorporated textual analysis tools and methods in scholarship and teaching:
- Jyldyz Bekbalaeva (AUCA) has taught textual analysis methods and tools in an introductory Digital Humanities course.
- Kristen Doyle Highland (AUS) has used textual analysis tools like Voyant in composition/writing and literature courses.
- Geoffrey Gilbert & Russell Williams (AUP) have published in the field of computer-aided textual analysis and will be using Voyant and Jupyter Notebook with students this fall semester.
- James Plumtree (AUCA) has used textual analysis tools to facilitate his scholarship.
- Anguelina Popova (AUCA) has taught textual analysis methods and tools in a Digital Cultures course.
- Maya Sfeir (AUB) has taught and done research in the field of Corpus Linguistics and taught textual analysis methods and tools in a Digital Humanities course.
- Mai Zaki (AUS) has been teaching and publishing in the field of Corpus Linguistics and Translation, and has been using textual analysis tools/resources with Arabic and English corpora.
All interested AMICAL members are welcome to attend and hear about the good, bad, ugly and lovely of using textual analysis in the classroom or in their scholarship. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the group, and to share their own experiences.
The discussion will be facilitated by Najla Jarkas (AMICAL Digital Liberal Arts Fellow) and Alex Armstrong (AMICAL Program & Technology Officer).
