Dear colleagues

Do you work in the humanities or support people who do? Are you 
interested in how digital techniques can help enhance your research?

"The lecturers were true experts, excellent speakers and 
delightfully enthusiastic about their subjects." DHOxSS 2016 

The annual Digital Humanities at Oxford (DHOxSS) summer school

available for groups of 10+, along with discounts for students.

Participants follow one of eight parallel workshop strands 
throughout the week, supplementing their training with expert

Morning lecture/masterclass topics include using face and pattern

learning for image collections, researching and teaching the 
legislative history of formal negotiations, creative computing 
and experimental humanities (Ada Lovelace), and Wikipedia’s 
sister projects as platforms for Digital Humanities.

There will also be optional evening events (some at additional 
cost), including a guided tour of Oxford, an evening drinks and 
poster session at the Weston Library, the TORCH lecture, and an

We are pleased to offer a small number of bursaries for 
attendance to students and early-career researchers. The aim is 
for participants to attend the Summer School and then disseminate 
what they have learnt to others in the field. Bursary 
applications should be submitted by noon on Friday 31st March.

We look forward to seeing you there,
