Easing Entry and Improving Access to Computer-Assisted Text Analysis for the Humanities

The addition of several features to the Lexos software, including a set of instructional resources to help scholars and students understand the most appropriate uses for computational methods for text analysis.

The rapid digitization of texts presents both new opportunities and real barriers of entry to computer-assisted explorations of texts. The Lexos software developed by the Lexomics Project provides a simple, web-based workflow for text processing, statistical analysis, and visualization designed to address these barriers. The project will support Lexos' core strength as an entry-level tool while seeking to position it as an innovative intervention in Digital Humanities conversations about the interplay of machine learning and text analysis. The project will embed dialogue about the use of computational methods to study humanities data in the tool itself through our "In the Margins" feature to collect and disseminate discussions of the problems, solutions, and best practices for using computational methods for text analysis.
