Need to do some statistical analysis? R is one of the standard tools in the library of data analytics. It is also an accessible language for non-programmers, with many built-in tools and packages for a wide variety of analyses.

In a digital humanities context, R is useful for web scraping, word frequency analysis, GIS, and other applications.

Join Ben Hicks, DH Developer, for a brief introduction to the basics of the language, its package management, and tools for its use (such as R Studio), along with some practical examples of textual analysis.

Please come with R installed from CRAN for your OS, if possible, along with R Studio.
