A scholar or student interested in modern campus protest and politics has a range of digital archives to begin their project, including digitized national newspapers, digitized student newspapers and campus circulars, and digitized protest and organizational pamphlets. But increased accessibility also presents a set of methodological questions. Most significantly, where and how does a scholar or student begin? This digital archive offers a set of accessible text corpora to conduct content and text mining analysis of student protest around the world using Voyant, DocuScope, or Python. Providing downloadable and accessible corpora text files offers scholars and interested students an easy access point to begin to explore student protest at scale. The goal is to enable scholars to explore and pose new questions about student protest and higher education, both historically and contemporaneously.
