Topic Modeling for Humanities Research

A workshop and follow-up activities for 50 participants on the use of topic modeling with large-scale humanities datasets as a method of analysis for humanities scholarship.

Topic Modeling for Humanities Research, a one-day workshop, will facilitate a unique opportunity for cross-fertilization, information exchange, and collaboration between and among humanities scholars and researchers in natural language processing on the subject of topic modeling applications and methods. The workshop will be organized into three primary areas: 1) an overview of how topic modeling is currently being used in the humanities; 2) an inventory of extensions of the LDA model that have particular relevance for humanities research questions; and 3) a discussion of software implementations, toolkits, and interfaces.
