Gale Digital Scholar Lab: Understanding Sentiment Analysis

Gale Digital Scholar Lab has six analysis tools built into it with Sentiment Analysis being one. Sentiment Analysis is the method of revealing trends or patterns in positive, negative, or neutral sentiment within a collected set of documents.  “Sentiment Analysis uses the AFINN Lexicon to assign a “sentiment score” to each document within a researcher’s content set, then provides two interactive visualizations of this data. In this webinar, Senior Digital Humanities Specialist Dr. Sarah Ketchley will show how to run the Sentiment Analysis tool, explain the recent upgrade to this tool, and discuss how Sentiment Analysis can be used in Digital Humanities projects to answer research questions.”

Date: Monday October 30, 3:00-4:00pm
