We are excited to announce that the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) will take place at St Anne’s College from 3rd-7th July 2017. There will be the usual popular week-long programme of workshops and lectures, as well as optional excursions and outings to historic Oxford locations.
DHOxSS offers a range of training workshops 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, and cultural heritage. Each participant follows one of our workshop strands throughout the week, supplementing their training with expert guest lectures and masterclasses. 90% of last year’s participants rated the academic content as Good or Excellent, and 87% gave the same rating to the mix between academic and social aspects.
St Anne’s is one of Oxford’s largest colleges, modern in its outlook and architecture, and with particular strengths in Digital Humanities. Lunches will be served in the permanent marquee on the lawn, taking advantage of the (hopefully!) lovely summer weather and allowing participants and speakers from different workshop strands to network and socialise. The catering team has secured many coveted catering awards including Chef of the Year, so you can look forward to delicious food. And in your free evenings you can take your pick from Oxford’s plentiful and varied culinary and entertainment opportunities.
Registration will be available in mid-February, when we will also launch 2017‘s website, giving full details of the workshops, presentations, evening events and optional excursions. But for now, please save the date! (Don’t worry, we’ll send you another reminder when registration opens.)
