seededlda: Seeded-LDA for Topic Modeling

Implements the seeded-LDA model (Lu, Ott, Cardie & Tsou 2010) <doi:10.1109/ICDMW.2011.125> using the quanteda package and the GibbsLDA++ library for semisupervised topic modeling. Seeded-LDA allows users to pre-define topics with keywords to perform theory-driven analysis of textual data in social sciences and humanities (Watanabe & Zhou 2020) <doi:10.1177/0894439320907027>.
