AntConc / Mallet / OpenRefine 

Below you will find a set of nine tutorials (in Dutch), meant for beginners who want to start working with the well-known text mining tools AntConc and Mallet. Also included are tutorials explaining the basics of how to work with the command line, how to write simple scripts, and how to clean up your dataset with the open source application OpenRefine.

This series was created and produced by Tim Veldt, who joined the CREATE team as a research intern in the spring semester of 2016. As part of his internship, Tim tested the use of computational tools in historical text analysis, working on a dataset of early 20th century newspaper collections of the Dutch Royal Library (Delpher). This work contributed to an MA-thesis research project on technological future visions in the Netherlands in the interwar period (1919-1939), conducted at the History Department of the University of Amsterdam.

Below you will find a handout for working with the popular tool for Network Analysis Gephi. The handout was created by Julia Noordegraaf, Karel Dibbets, and Kathleen Lotze, as part of a workshop on Network Analysis in Cinema Context, the online research environment for Dutch film culture in the 20th century.

The Reconstructing Cinema Networks Workshop was organised as part of THATCamp Amsterdam 2016 (go here for an impression of THATCamp Amsterdam 2016).
