Announcing the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School 2016

3605597056_9b846ea851_zThe annual Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is an exciting professional development opportunity for anyone who has an interest in the digital humanities, including academics at all career stages, students, project managers, and people who work in IT, libraries, and cultural heritage. The co-directors, James Cummings of Academic IT and Pip Willcox of the Bodleian Libraries, look forward to welcoming delegates to the 2016 Summer School from 4-8 July.

Delegates will follow one of our parallel workshops throughout the week, supplementing their training with expert guest lectures on subjects ranging from big data and semantic networks to the Renaissance book trade and the music of Richard Wagner. There will also be a lively programme of evening social events, including a drinks reception and poster session at the University Museum, a walking tour and the DHOxSS dinner. Delegates can attend the annual TORCH Digital Humanities lecture organised by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities, which also takes place during the week.

DHOxSS 2016 will be held at St Hugh’s College and other nearby University venues. A limited amount of bed-and-breakfast accommodation will be available in St Hugh’s College and St Anne’s College.
Booking for this popular and highly respected event is now open. To keep up to date with developments, visit the DHOxSS 2016 web pages or subscribe to our mailing list: dhoxss-announce-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk.
