    Summer Seminars at Oxford's Humanities Computing Unit
    10th - 14th July 2000
    Humanities Computing Unit, University of Oxford

    Booking deadline: 9th June

    Oxford University's Humanities Computing Unit is pleased to announce a
    week-long series of seminars on humanities computing, to be held in
    Oxford from the 10th to 14th July 2000.

    The seminars will cater for beginners as well as experienced
    practitioners. If you want to see how new technologies can help you in
    your work, to explore new research tools, or to find out about the
    latest approaches in text encoding, you will find these seminars

    Some seminars are already fully booked, though spaces are still available
    on the following:

    10th July Introduction to humanities computing
    11th July Introduction to the Internet
    11th July (Repeated 13th July) Creating and documenting digital texts
    12th July Digital libraries
    12th July (repeated 14th July) Making multimedia Web sites

    The seminar website at http://www.hcu.ox.ac.uk/summer/ includes full
    details of the topics to be covered on each day. Each seminar will
    give you the opportunity to consult with experts about your research
    projects, and will also combine practical hands-on sessions with
    formal presentations. All teaching will be carried out by members of
    the Humanities Computing Unit.

    Who Should Come?

    You should come if you work, or plan to work, with digital texts or
    images, especially in a research context. You should be familiar with
    the concepts of HTML, and with using the Internet. You will leave with
    a clear sense of the principles and processes of electronic text and
    multimedia creation and delivery, and be able to identify those areas
    where you need to learn more.

    How Much Will It Cost?

    Each seminar costs 60 GBP (45 GBP for members of Oxford University). You
    can book for any combination of individual seminars.
