Digital Humanities Summer Institute, Dalhousie University (early bird registration deadline: 1 March 2015)

Dalhousie is hosting a two-week summer institute, the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (Atlantic), affiliated with the DHSI at the University of Victoria.  The courses offered aim to provide training in the digital humanities relevant to research and teaching for graduate students, faculty and others.

We are pleased to announced that the DHSI Atlantic has received generous SSHRC support that allows us to keep registration fees low. Early registration fees per course are $100 for graduate students (as well as postdoctoral researchers and contract academic faculty) and $250 for full-time faculty or staff.  Registration fees will rise to $150/$350 per course on March 2nd. Courses will fill on a first-come, first-served basis.

There will be four courses offered, each taking place over five full days.  4-8 May: “Digitization Fundamentals and their Application” and “Digital Pedagogy.” 11-15 May: “Text-Encoding Fundamentals and their Application” and “Knowledge Mobilization and Digital Media.”  Each Thursday there will be a public lecture at the end of the day, as well as other opportunities for registrants to meet and chat about projects and possible collaborations.The offerings this year at the DHSI@Dal (Atlantic) draw on the well-established DHSI at the University of Victoria.
