  Please forward!

There are only a few days left before the registration deadline 
of 13 June 2016 for the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer 
School (4-8 July 2016). Some of our week-long workshops are now 
full, but a few 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. Want to learn the TEI? 
The Introduction to the Guidelines of the Text Encoding 
Initiative workshop can help there!

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.
