Introducing Students to Explorations of Digitized Texts Using Lexos
Mark LeBlanc (Wheaton College)

The rapid digitization of texts presents both new opportunities and real barriers of entry to computer-assisted explorations of texts for both faculty and students. Computer science programs, especially those on liberal arts campuses, are well positioned to help faculty and students across the humanities (and social sciences) who seek to apply computational techniques to their digitized corpora of interest. This workshop provides hands-on practice with a set of web-based tools and a review of tested interdisciplinary course materials that support efforts for your campus to bring novel applications of computation to digitized texts in domains across the academy.
