Find The Best
For Your Research
The Pixelating Mixer is an opportunity for DH scholars across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research.
In this session, we'll look at Text Analysis using Voyant Tools. Voyant is a text reading and analysis environment for digital texts that lets you dive in and do some light analysis of texts without needing to code. We'll introduce the core ideas of text mining and provide some hands-on instruction in text analysis, utilizing a user-friendly, web-based tool.
SPSS is a statistical analysis, data management and data documentation software. It is used by researchers to gain insights from data, and predict what will happen next.
In this introductory-level workshop, you will learn how to enter your data into SPSS, and summarise, graph and present your data through this software. You will also learn how to do one-variable tests for the purpose of inferential statistics.
Join us for this beginners workshop, and learn the basics that will help you harness this powerful tool.
Experience shows that it is easier (and more pleasant) to get your thesis written when you do two things:
1. Write regularly
2. Are part of a writing group or community
Our peer-facilitated writing communities give you the opportunity to do both; Weekly meetings with a Peer Writing Consultant from the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication give you a chance to work out writing goals for the week, ask questions, share best practices, and connect with your peers. Throughout the week, engage in a facilitated online space that allows you to ask questions, keep each other accountable, and share your work for feedback if you wish. The goal of this community is to offer support, engagement with your peers in other programs, and extra accountability to keep you writing until your thesis is done.
