Take part in The Digital Humanities Summer Institute | Prenez part au Digital Humanities Summer Institute
The Canadian Federation of the Humanities and Social Sciences is pleased to announce that the timing of this coming year’s Digital Humanities Summer Institute, hosted by the University of Victoria’s Faculty of Humanities and its Electronic Textual Cultures Lab, overlaps with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. DHSI will run June 6 to June 10, 2013, and its organizers are offering a discounted rate for registered Congress attendees wishing to participate in DHSI courses; special programming will be open and free-of-charge.
The DHSI combines the best aspects of a skills workshop, international conference, and summer camp. It features coursework, seminars, lectures and the chance for faculty, staff, and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities to share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced technologies that are opening up exciting new areas of inquiry.
Congress 2013 attendees can take part in most of the DHSI program free-of-charge, including morning and afternoon colloquia, lunch-time unconference sessions, and keynote events. Details on this programming will be shared as it is confirmed in advance of Congress. Attendees can also register for the full DHSI program at a discounted rate of $300 for students and $650 for non-students (for registrations before April 1). For more information on the program, click here (http://dhsi.org/); DHSI 2013 registration is now open.
Discussions are underway for full integration of DHSI programming within Congress 2014, which will be held at Brock University. Please communicate this opportunity to your members at your earliest convenience, as spots for DHSI courses sell out quickly.
