Dear colleagues

Do you work in the humanities or support people who do? Are you
interested in how digital techniques can help enhance your research?

"The lecturers were true experts, excellent speakers and
delightfully enthusiastic about their subjects." DHOxSS 2016

The annual Digital Humanities at Oxford (DHOxSS) summer school
runs this year from 3rd-7th July at various central Oxford

available for groups of 10+, along with discounts for students.

Participants follow one of eight parallel workshop strands

Workshop strands for 2017 are:

Morning lecture/masterclass topics include using face and pattern
recognition on photo archives, computer vision and machine
learning for image collections, researching and teaching the
legislative history of formal negotiations, creative computing
and experimental humanities (Ada Lovelace), and Wikipedia’s
sister projects as platforms for Digital Humanities.

There will also be optional evening events (some at additional
cost), including a guided tour of Oxford, an evening drinks and
poster session at the Weston Library, the TORCH lecture, and an
evening at Exeter College. Participants are invited to submit
posters for the welcome reception at the Weston Library by

We are pleased to offer a small number of bursaries for
attendance to students and early-career researchers. The aim is
for participants to attend the Summer School and then disseminate
what they have learnt to others in the field. Bursary
applications should be submitted by noon on Friday 31st March.

We look forward to seeing you there,
