NeDiMAH Early-Career Researcher Bursaries for DHOxSS Humanities
Web of Data Workshop
Deadline now extended until 12 Noon (GMT) on Friday 25 April 2014!


Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is one of the
leading international training events in Digital Humanities. It
is for researchers, project managers, research assistants,
students, and anyone interested in Digital Humanities. DHOxSS
delegates are introduced to a range of topics including the
creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or
publication of digital data in the humanities. Each delegate
follows one of our five-day workshops and supplements this with
additional morning parallel lectures. There will also be a
(peer-reviewed) poster session giving delegates a chance to
present their Digital Humanities work to those at the DHOxSS.

This year's DHOxSS will be held on 14-18 July 2014 and the
five-day workshops offered are:

1. Introduction to Digital Humanities
2. Taking Control: Practical Scripting for Digital Humanities
3. Data Curation and Access for the Digital Humanities
4. A Humanities Web of Data: Publishing, Linking and Querying on
the Semantic Web
5. Using the Text Encoding Initiative for Digital Scholarly Editions

The NeDiMAH project has sponsored up to 6 bursaries of up to EUR
500 each for those attending the Humanities Web of Data workshop
in particular (see
http://dhoxss.humanities.ox.ac.uk/2014/HumData.html). Applicants
should be early-career researchers in the humanities, and must be
working in participating NeDiMAH countries (see
http://www.nedimah.eu/Contributing-Organisations) and priority
will be given to applicants whose travel costs mean they would
not otherwise be able to attend. ‘Early-Career Researcher’ is
defined as up to five years post-phd (or equivalent).

The DHOxSS will offer an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge
and participate in discussions about a wide range of digital
techniques and research methods, as well as exploring key topics
in depth with leading senior researchers and technologists.

The application form asks for a description (max 250 words) of
how attending the Humanities Web of Data workshop in particular
will benefit your research. Applications are due by 22 April 2014.
