Do you get the feeling that your computer could be doing more work for you, instead of making you do more work? Are you curious about how the Digital Humanities can further support your research, teaching, and dissemination? We’d like to invite you to a series of workshops on June 2nd and 3rd at Congress at the University of Calgary.
The Digital Humanities Summer Institute @ Congress 2016 is a series of 2.5-hour workshops for scholars, staff, and students interested in a hands-on introduction to DH tools, techniques and methods:
* Issues in the Digital Humanities
* Digital Humanities Pedagogy
* DH for Faculty, Chairs, and Deans
* Introduction to Compute Canada
* Project Management in DH
* XML is Everywhere
* The Power of the Command Line
* Introduction to Omeka
The series includes two plenaries adn lunch for registered participants. For full workshop descriptions see http://dhsi.org/events.php#DHSI@Congress
These workshops, facilitated by established scholars and emerging leaders in the field, introduce a range of DH methods and methodologies. Built on the model of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, the DHSI@Congress series is returning to Congress for its third year.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, all spots in the workshops are supported by a tuition scholarship, with only a $25 administrative fee for each session.
For information, workshop descriptions and registration, see
DHSI@Congress has been developed by the Digital Humanities Summer Institute in partnership with the University of Calgary Faculty of Arts, the Society for Digital Humanities/ Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN), and the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS). The 2016 workshops will be delivered in English, with plans for French-language sessions in coming years.
