*About the DHSI*

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria
provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new
computing technologies and how they are influencing the work of those in the
Arts, Humanities and Library communities. The institute takes place across a
week of intensive coursework, seminar participation, and lectures. It brings
together faculty, staff, and graduate students from different areas of the
Arts, Humanities, Library and Archives communities and beyond. During the

technologies to our teaching, research, dissemination and preservation.
