Open lecture by Prof. Cheryl Geisler on coding language data
Professor Cheryl Geisler will deliver an open lecture titled “Coding Language Data: A Framework for a Systematic and Valid Analysis” on September 17 at 10-12 at Jakobi 2-114.
Coding, the analytic task of assigning codes to non-numeric data, is foundational to the many fields that rely on language data. This talk offers a framework of analytic tasks in coding to ensure both systematicity and validity. Tasks discussed will include code restructuring, segmentation in advance of coding, use of a full coding scheme, and retrieval of full context by code. This talk will help researchers choose tools and design workflow to support coding language data.
Cheryl Geisler is Professor of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University. A recognized expert on verbal data coding, she is the author of Analyzing Streams of Language (2004), edited a special section of the Journal of Writing Research on emerging methods in the analysis of texts (2016), and wrote the lead article on coding in the April 2018 issue of Written Communication. With Jason Swarts as co-author, she will be publishing Coding Streams of Language from the University Press of Colorado next year.
In addition, Professor Geisler would like to work one-on-one with students or staff members who are currently working on Coding Language Data to offer her feedback and guidance.
