Political Text Analysis

Myself and another Ph.D. student created a module to teach undergraduates statistical methods for text analysis focused on political applications. We created and taught variants for implementation in introductory and advanced classes. This work was funded by the Duke Rhodes Information Initiative and is documented here: https://bigdata.duke.edu/projects/text-analysis-political-speech.
