Python Tutorials for Digital Humanities

While there are many online resources for learning Python, few are geared specifically towards digital humanities projects. That gap motivated medieval historian Dr. William Mattingly to create the free tutorials on the YouTube channel linked above. The series of 26 videos, ranging in length from about 6 to 26 minutes each, introduces key concepts, terminology, and basic functions to manage and analyze data for humanities projects using Python. Users with no coding or programming experience are encouraged to start with the first lecture series on the homepage, An Introduction to Python for the Digital Humanities. After completing the course, learners should have the tools and confidence to experiment with Python on their own projects. Scrolling through the landing page, learners will find additional tutorial series on more advanced topics, such as text analysis using Python, Latin Natural Language Processing (NLP), and how to use tools like PyVis and JSON files in digital humanities projects. Learners can keep up with the project on Dr. Mattingly's Twitter account (@wjb_mattingly).
