We'd love to have you join us in June, and there are still a few spots available. Check out the courses page to see what's open!
Join us at CFHSS Congress, at Brock U in St Catherines ON between 28-30 May 2014, for a series of 2.5 hour workshops for scholars, staff, and students interested in a hands-on introduction to the ways that traditional and digital methods of teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation intersect and enhance one another -- alongside our pals at CSDH/SCHN!

Propose a Course for 2015?
Believe it or not, we're already planning (just a little bit) for DHSI 2015! Got special DH skills and a desire to teach them? Propose a community course for DHSI 2015!
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 (14-18 July 2014), DH@Leipzig (22 July - 2 August 2014), HILT (4-8 August 2014; formerly DHWI), DH@Switzerland (26-29 June 2013), EDIROM DH (8-12 September 2014), and the training groups at IDE and Brown are working together as a network of DH training institutes.
