Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School: registration open

Pip Willcox-2
We are delighted to announce that the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) 2018 is now open for registration: https://www.oxforduniversitystores.co.uk/conferences-and-events/oxford-eresearch-centre/oxford-eresearch-centre/digital-humanities-at-oxford-summer-school-2018

Information on the Summer School is available at www.dhoxss.net: http://www.dhoxss.net/
 
The Summer School runs this year from 2–6 July at Keble College, Oxford. It offers training to anyone with an interest in the Digital Humanities and related fields, including academics at all career stages, students, project managers, and people who work in IT, libraries, cultural heritage, publishing and other industries.
 
You will follow one of eight parallel workshop strands led by subject experts throughout the week, supplementing your training with expert guest lectures. Workshop spaces are limited and can get booked up, so early registration is advised to secure your first choice. Workshops for 2018 include core Digital Humanities methods and technologies, alongside new approaches introduced this year:
 
·         An Introduction to Digital Humanities – learn about the tools and techniques available in Digital Humanities for scholarly purposes
·         The Text Encoding Initiative – lectures and hands-on practical sessions to introduce the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative for the creation of digital text
·         *NEW* Quantitative Humanities – case studies and introductory sessions with tools to demonstrate data science methods in humanities scholarship
·         Digital Musicology – exploring a range of computational and informatics methods that can be successfully applied to musicology
·         From Text to Tech – a basic introduction to Python programming, corpus linguistics and Natural Language Processing, covering cleaning texts and adding linguistic annotation
·         Hands-On Humanities Data Curation – introducing tools, methods and concepts to manage, organise, clean and process your digital humanities data
·         Linked Data for Digital Humanities – the concepts and technologies behind Linked Data and the Semantic Web, so that research is available for reuse by other scholars
·         *NEW* Crowdsourced Research in the Humanities – the design and study of citizen science, social media and digital editing
 
Our keynotes this year will be given by Dr Victoria Van Hyning, Humanities lead of Zooniverse.org, and Dr Glenn Roe, Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer in Digital Humanities at Australian National University: http://www.dhoxss.net/keynotes. There will also be optional evening events, including a guided tour of Oxford, an evening drinks and poster session at the Weston Library, and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) public lecture, given by Sarah Ellis, Director of Digital Development at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
 
There are a small number of bursaries available to students and early career researchers to cover the cost of registration, deadline Tuesday 3 April: http://www.dhoxss.net/bursaries. If you wish to apply for a bursary please do so prior to registration.
 
Places are likely to book up fast, so to secure your place and first workshop choice please register as soon as possible. Please address any questions to the DHOxSS Events Team: [hidden email].
 
We look forward to seeing you in July!

“A wonderful taster of what digital research methods make possible and I came away from the week very excited by all these new possibilities.”
