Text and Network Analysis with R
This is the material for the Text and Network Analysis with R course as part of the Networks in a Global World (NetGloW) conference. I will use this page to publish slides, hand-outs, data sets etc. As the title indicates, the workshop will be taught almost completely using R. If you don't use R yet, please make sure that you install R and Rstudio on your laptop.
This repository hosts the slides (html and source code). The source code for all handouts is published on my learningR page:
Session 1: Managing data and Accessing APIs from R
In this introductory session you will learn how to use R to organize and transform your data and how to obtain data by accessing public APIs such as from Twitter, facebook etc.
- Handout: Accessing APIs
- For those new(ish) to R, these handouts may also be interesting:
Session 2: Corpus and Network Analysis
This session is the main content of the workshop: analysing text and networks from R. We will look at simple corpus analysis, comparing corpora, topic modeling, analysing (social) networks, and semantic network analysis.
