Building Digital Corpora

This workshop is the first in a series on digital humanities workflows, and it focuses on creating digital corpora, or sets of documents to enable computational research. We will discuss the basics on what corpora are, their characteristics, and how they can be used for a variety of digital research methods. We will focus on methods for creating corpora, including: how to work with different materials to produce usable digital copies; how to use built-in scanners on a mobile device to create good digital images; storage and labeling practices; and other practical techniques for producing corpora. Learners will become familiar with using everyday tools like smartphones to create effective corpora to assist with their research. How to make these corpora “machine-readable”—meaning capable of being analyzed by software—will be the focus of the next workshop in the series. Please bring a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet.
