Text Analytics Visualization

This project aimed to recover the lost history of African-American women by performing various text analyses on a large corpus gather from the Hathi Trust and JSTOR. Analysis was done with Mallet LDA topic modeling and Comparative Text Mining. Work started on the Illinois Campus Cluster then moved to the Greenfield and later Bridges supercomputers at the Pittsburgh Supercomputer Center.
