DHSI – the Digital Humanities Summer Institute – is a humanities training program held every summer at the University of Victoria. Delivered over a week, each course is an intensive series of classes interspersed with colloquiums, unconferences, and other community-based events, and provides an ideal environment for influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation in different disciplines. Course offerings have historically included such topics as text analysis, data visualization, digital pedagogy, programming, topic modelling, and more.
UBC Library is continuing as a sponsoring partner of DHSI thanks to the support of University Librarian Susan Parker. As part of this sponsorship, the Library provides free registration – normally $900 with the early bird rate, or $1,250 at full cost – for five UBC library employees to attend a course at DSHI 2018, June 4-8 or 11-15.
If you would like to be considered for one of these sponsored spots, please submit the following to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, October 23rd:
· A short statement of interest (300 words max)
· Your preferred course(s)
· Source(s) of funding you would use to cover the other costs of attending DHSI (travel, accommodation, incidentals)
· If you have attended DHSI in the past on a UBC Library-sponsored spot, the years you attended and the courses you took
Any UBC Library staff member with an interest in Digital Humanities is invited to apply. Submissions will be reviewed by members of the Library’s Digital Humanities Working Group and we hope to notify successful applicants by October 27th.
Note: Registration for 2018 is now open, and some high-demand courses fill up fast. Any participants from sponsoring institutions can also attend DHSI at a reduced rate of $650, using a discount code. If you are planning to attend DHSI in 2018 and are interested in registering with this discounted rate, please contact Larissa Ringham (email@example.com) for the code *before you register*, as the discount cannot be applied retroactively.
Please feel free to contact Larissa for more information, or if you have any questions.
