Call for Applications: Word Vectors for the Thoughtful Humanist, Northeastern University

January 13, 2022
10:45 AM


Designed to serve faculty, librarians, and students in the humanities. 


Join the Women Writers Project at Northeastern University from May 16-20, 2022 for an intensive seminar focused on pedagogical uses of word vectors. This five-day virtual event will offer a thorough, well-scaffolded introduction to working with word vectors in R and RStudio through commented code samples that can be adapted for use in participants’ own teaching. Participants will learn how to build corpora and train models of their own, and will also explore the challenges of teaching command-line tools in a humanities context.

Each event is followed by a period of virtual discussion, consultation, and support. Participants will be encouraged to share research and teaching outcomes (syllabi, assignments, blog posts, research papers) and will be given the opportunity to post preliminary results and work in progress on the WWP blog.
