Topic Modeling with MALLET

Topic modeling is an automatic method for detecting groups of related keywords—or “topics”—in a text. MALLET is a tool that makes topic modeling accessible to everyone. This workshop will cover the fundamentals of topic modeling and how it’s useful to humanists, plus the special challenges of dealing with humanistic texts. Familiarity with the command line will be helpful.
