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 DHers and, more recently, "grown up nerd camp" ;). Read about us in the larger context of DH and its interdisciplinary history.

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute 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.

A time of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants at DHSI 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 time of focused practice, learning, and connecting with (and making new) friends and colleagues.

For its 2017 offering, DHSI is particularly pleased to be aligned with the international conference of the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing!

DHSI makes its announcements via the DHSI e-mail list and DHInstitute on Twitter, as well as other venues.
