Text encoding (mark-up) and analysis have long been used to enhance traditional ways of reading and analyzing texts. Though historically associated with humanities disciplines, these methods are broadly applicable, and the growth of the digital humanities and social sciences (DHSS) field has helped increase the visibility and use of these techniques. Common approaches can help answer questions about authorship, inherent bias, visible (or less visible) patterns in speech and written works, or help integrate texts into various digital projects.

Attend this session with RIT Library’s DHSS and Liberal Arts Librarians to learn about the broad range of possibilities with text encoding and analysis. We will discuss the full lifecycle of a text analysis project (encoding, processing, and analysis); will complete a brief hands-on exercise using XML; and will explore tools and markup languages that will help you accomplish your goals.
