Free N8 CIR courses: Python, R in the Humanities - May 2021

15 April 2021

The N8 CIR (Computationally Intensive Research) group is sponsoring two introductory classes in May for interested staff and PhD students.

The two courses are:

* Python for the Humanities
Date: 10th and 11th May
Time: 2pm - 4pm

Registration closes on Sunday 2nd May.

Learning basic python programming skills can open new and interesting avenues for your research, allowing you to interrogate sources at scale or zoom into finer details than are visible to the human eye!

This two-part course will see participants learn the basics of the Python language before using these skills on Humanities projects rather than more generic programming examples.

* R in the Humanities
Dates: 26th May and 2nd June
Time: 1:30pm - 3pm

Registration closes on Sunday 16th May.

This course is a gentle introduction to R for text analysis. Over the course of two sessions you will be taught the basics of the powerful programming language before being provided with hands-on experience analysing long-form text in the RStudio development environment.
