New technologies are developing at a rapid pace and have enabled significant breakthroughs in collecting, analysing and visualising the textual data that are at the heart of many subjects. This interdisciplinary unit introduces students to the many uses of computers and digital tools, with specific focus on the analysis of spoken and written text. The unit will teach students how to use computer tools for the collection or analysis of discourse/text, for example social media, literature, fieldwork data, corporate communication, foreign language, interviews, news discourse and many more. The emphasis is on free and easy-to-use tools and no prior technical expertise is expected or required.
