  Dear Friends and Colleagues,
  We're very pleased to announce the 2020 Digital Humanities Summer

  The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) 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, Social Sciences, 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," 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.

Fabulous 2020 Offerings (Plus Registration & Scholarships)

  Offerings for 2020 are the result of consultation with our community
about the topics and material we'd all like to see covered at DHSI now
and in the future, as well as an open call for proposals. Our course
list continues to grow, and we are committed to maintaining smaller
class sizes in order to maximize our learning together!   At the moment,
preparations for our 50+ 2020 course offerings, shorter workshops, and
aligned activities continue to hum along in Victoria, and our 'quiet'
launch of our new website and registration system (!) has resulted in
courses beginning to fill ... starting a bit ahead of anticipated
schedule. As in the past: if there's a course you or a member of your
team absolutely need, we'd recommend registration earlier rather than
later for it!  In addition to a great mix of classic and new courses
(recommended by our community), we've got some great talks in store from
Roopika Risam (Salem State U), Elisabeth Burr (U Leipzig), and Aaron
Mauro (Brock U), and others -- as well as our DHSI Conference and
Colloquium, lunchtime unconference sessions, short workshops, and more!
We will also feature aligned gatherings, including the ADHO Special
Interest Group for Digital Humanities Pedagogy and Training (6 June),
Project Management in the Humanities (6 June), the #Right2Left
Conference (7 June), and the soon-to-be-announced Research Data
Management for Digitally Curious Humanists (6-7 June).

  Further, as we do every year, we'll have the pleasure of awarding a
number of scholarships.  Application is via
and these scholarships cover tuition costs with the exception of a
small, non-refundable administration fee (students $150, non-students
$300).  The absolute deadline to apply for scholarships is 14 February
2020, though the scholarship committee considers applications on a
regular, rolling basis and evaluates applications based on need, merit,
and course availability at the time of evaluation. Scholarship spots
tend to fill exceptionally quickly!  We're also hoping to work, as we've
done in the past, with a number of groups to offer additional support in
the form of travel bursaries (!); details on our website.
