Exploring text with the Python Natural Language Toolkit

At the University of Melbourne’s Research Bazaar, we’re exploring digital tools for Humanities and Social Science scholars and are developing a course in the Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) to help researchers and teachers perform quantitative analysis of large bodies of text.

If you’re interested in learning about how Natural Language Tool Kit  can be applied to text to analyse features of language, we’d love you to join us in this workshop. The materials are new, so we’re looking for your help to develop the course. There will be a brief introduction to some of the key features of Natural Language Tool Kit, and, time permitting, we’ll begin to explore some of the Malcolm Fraser archive, held by the University of Melbourne.

Please bring a laptop.
