How does the Digital Humanities at Oxford online event work?

The Digital Humanities at Oxford online event, the first of its kind, will run from 13-15 July 2020

The annual Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) which was due to be held in Keble College Oxford, will run for the first time this year as an online event from 13-15 July 2020.  We look forward to running the full Summer School again in 2021 at Keble College

In this virtual event we will be showcasing the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School, with taster lectures and interactive sessions of our established Summer School strands.

The Summer School offers training to anyone with an interest in the Digital Humanities, including academics at all career stages, students, project managers, and people who work in IT, libraries, cultural heritage, publishing and other industries.

"It was such an inspiring and just amazing experience! I would recommend it to everyone interested in the Digital Humanities, at any stage of their career."

How it works

There will be nine expert talks over three mornings Monday to Wednesday, all of which you will be able to join. These talks will give you a broad overview of the Digital Humanities topics covered in the DH Oxford Summer School, and the opportunity to ask the convenors questions.

Each talk will be drawn from one of the nine Summer School strands:

  • Intro to Digital Humanities

  • Sculpting Digital Cultural Heritage

  • Applied Data Analysis

  • Linked Data for Digital Humanities

  • Humanities Data: Case Studies and Approaches

  • From Text to Tech

  • Crowdsourced Research in the Humanities

  • The Text Encoding Initiative

  • When Archives Become Digital

 

In the afternoons there will be optional interactive sessions, which will be limited to one per participant in order to allow for smaller groups.

 

Registration and the waiting list are now closed. We will ask you to choose which interactive session you would like to join (on a first come, first served basis).

The DHOx2020 event will also offer opportunities for networking and meeting fellow participants in smaller groups.

You will have access to a Virtual Learning Environment on Canvas, where we will share information about the programme and where you can have discussions with other participants and convenors.
