Digital Humanities Summer School bigger and better than ever

Digital Humanities Summer School bigger and better than ever

The e-Research Centre was proud to be a partner in this year’s highly successful Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School, which brought over 160 students attending eight strands of workshops, keynotes, additional lectures, and panels. 

The week-long summer school is a major international Digital Humanities event, delivered by a partnership across the University including IT Services, the Bodleian Libraries, the e-Research Centre, Oxford Internet Institute, TORCH and others, together with many external friends and colleagues.

This year the e-Research Centre hosted a new weeklong workshop on “Digital Musicology”, organized by Dr Kevin Page with guest lecturers from Goldsmiths and Queen Mary in London and McGill in Canada and many others, as well as the second outing for "Humanities Data: Curation, Analysis, Access, and Reuse”, taught with our colleagues from the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. With longstanding engagement also in "Linked Data for the Humanities”, and multiple appearances in other workshops and panels, e-Research Centre staff are pleased to have been major contributors to the event.

Next year’s DHOxSS will be held in St Hugh's College, 4 - 8 July 2016.
