DHSI@Congress Workshops: Thursday June 2nd and Friday June 3rd at the University of Calgary

Are you looking for a little more DH after the CSDH/SCHN conference is over? We are pleased to announce that DHSI@Congress, a series of 2.5-hour workshops for scholars, staff, and students interested in a hands-on introduction to DH tools, techniques and methods, will be returning to Congress for its third year.

The DHSI@Congress workshops, which run on Thursday June 2nd and Friday June 3rd at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Calgary, are built on the community model of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria (to find out more about the DHSI in Victoria, now celebrating its 17th anniversary, please visit http://www.dhsi.org/). The DHSI@Congress sessions, facilitated by established scholars and emerging leaders in the field, introduce a wide range of Digital Humanities methods and methodologies from project management to DH pedagogy, from theoretical issues to the command line (and more!). We invite interested Congress attendees to register for any and all workshops that engage their interest at http://www.dhsi.org/events.php#DHSI@Congress.

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and hosts, all spots in the workshops are made available via a tuition scholarship, requiring only the payment of a $25 administrative fee for each session. DHSI@Congress has been developed by the DHSI in partnership with the Society for Digital Humanities/ Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN), Calgary’s Faculty of Arts, and the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS).  The 2016 workshops will be delivered in English, with plans for French-language sessions in coming years.

If your colleagues, students, classmates, department administrators, or friends might be glad of the workshops below, help us spread the good word via twitter,  facebook, and listservs.
