Subject: DHSI 2020 (1-5 and 8-12 June 2020) DHSI 2020 1-5 and 8-12 June 2020 Victoria, British Columbia, Canada http://dhsi.org/ - Offerings listed at https://dhsi.org/course-offerings/ - Register via https://dhsi.org/registration-fees/ - Apply for a scholarship via https://dhsi.org/scholarships/ --- Dear Friends and Colleagues, We're very pleased to announce the 2020 Digital Humanities Summer Institute! 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 https://dhsi.org/scholarships/, 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. - Course offerings: https://dhsi.org/course-offerings/ - Registration & fees: https://dhsi.org/registration-fees/ - Scholarship applications: https://dhsi.org/scholarships/ Wonderful Partners and Sponsors DHSI takes place on the University of Victoria campus, and is offered via UVic's Electronic Textual Cultures Lab.

We're very, very happy to welcome and continue working with our new and returning partners and sponsors! You can find details of this fine group at https://dhsi.org/partners-sponsors/. FYI, membership in these groups allows discounted registration (details at https://dhsi.org/registration-fees/). --- 2020 is shaping up to be another banner year, and we hope very much that you are considering joining our community for it! (And do tell a friend!) All best, Ray For Ray, Alyssa, Jannaya, and the DHSI team http://dhsi.org/ _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
