    I'm here writing as a guest blogger - thanks for having me! Not so long ago I had the great pleasure of visiting the HumLab to give a presentation and see what people there are up to, so here I am to say a little about my visit.

    The lecture will also show some basic tools for digital text analysis, for example Voyant, topic modeling with Mallet or named entity recognition (depending on requests from the participants). You can bring your own computer and text collection. We hope that this lecture/workshop will generate rewarding hands-on as well as theoretical discussions.
