More about the DHSI?
Find out why the Chronicle notes the importance of DHSI and DH training to humanities work -- calling DHSI Summer Camp for Digital Humanists and, more recently, " grown up nerd camp" ;). Read about us in the larger context of DH and its interdisciplonary history.
The Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines, via a community-based approach.
During a week of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies. Every summer, the institute brings together faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities as well as independent scholars and participants from areas beyond.
Described by one participant as an event that "combines the best aspects of a skills workshop, international conference, and summer camp," the DHSI prides itself on its friendly, informal, and collegial atmosphere. We invite you to join the DHSI community in Victoria for a week of practice, learning, and connecting with (and making new) friends and colleagues.
DH Training Network: We're pleased that DHSI (2-6 June 2014), DH@Oxford (8-12 July 2013), DH@Leipzig (22 July - 2 August 2013), DHWI , DH@Switzerland (26-29 June 2013), MusicDH@EDIROM (23-27 September 2013), and the training groups at IDE and Brown are working together as a network of DH training institutes.
