TITLE: Using JSTOR for Digital Humanities: The Baptist Scholarship Response to Civil Rights

DESCRIPTION: Learn how to mine text from JSTOR articles to measure attitudes towards civil rights in research focusing on Baptists.

Participants will also learn how to use Zotero to download JSTOR articles. No prior experience with digital humanities, text analysis, Zotero, or JSTOR use is required. Open to the entire Baylor community.
