[open-humanities] Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School 2016: Registration Deadline Approaching!

There are less than two weeks left before the registration
deadline of 13 June 2016 for the Digital Humanities at Oxford
Summer School (4-8 July 2016). Two of our workshops are now full,
but the other 6 still have room. I'd especially highlight two
workshops that are new this year, one on "Analysing Humanities
Data" (which uses the Wolfram Language for the analysis,
processing and visualisation of humanities data), and the other
on "Social Humanities: Citizens at Scale in the Digital World"
(looking at social media, citizen science and social machines).
Not sure which to take? Our ever-popular "An Introduction to
Digital Humanities" workshop gives a thorough overview of the
theory and practice of Digital Humanities.
Register as soon a possible to guarantee a place! There are
reduced fees for academics and students.
Block booking discounts are also available. Any questions? Ask
events at it.ox.ac.uk for more information.
