Part of the Quanteda Initiative is to promote the use of the tools whose development it supports through training and dissemination activities. These include publicly accessible workshops, invitation-only conferences, and bespoke training events.

In our workshops we can cover topics such as importing texts and constructing a corpus, tokenization, creating a document-feature matrix, textual statistics (e.g. readability, lexical diversity, collocation analysis), dictionary-based analysis, sentiment analysis, supervised and unsupervised scaling, document classification, topic modelling, and part-of-speech tagging.

Since the foundation of the Quanteda Initiative in 2018, we have organized one-day and two-day workshops in Australia (Canberra), Germany (Berlin; Bremen), Ireland (Dublin) and Japan (Kobe).

For a list of upcoming events, see the Events category in our News section.
