        Subject: New MPhil in Digital Humanities and Culture, Trinity College Dublin

Applications are now being accepted for an MPhil in Digital Humanities 
and Culture at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland's oldest University.

  Digital Humanities is an emerging and dynamic field of study that 
seeks to apply innovative technologies and methods to the study of the 
age-old disciplines of the humanities. This Masters is for students from 
any area of the humanities (including languages, literature, history, 
art history, linguistics, drama, film, and music) who would like to 
learn how technology mediates our study of these fields, as well as how 
technology is changing the way we create new artistic and scholarly works.

  Students will be exposed to a wide variety of theories, tools, and 
methods, from digital scholarly editing to datamining, and from 
cyberculture to XML. Some modules will be theory-based (such as Theory 
and Practice of Digital Humanities' and 'History of the Book'), others 
will be hands-on and have, in addition to theory, a lab component 
(including Digital Scholarly Editing' and 'Web Technologies')

  The MPhil can be completed in one year full time or two years part 
time. Taught Modules include'Theory and Practice of Digital Humanities', 
'Cyberculture', 'Digital Scholarly Editing', 'Web Technologies,' and 
'From Metadata to Linked Data'. In the second semester students will 
have the opportunity to participate in a practical internship at a 
cultural institution, with an ongoing digital humanities project, or 
with a digital library project.

This MPhil in Digital Humanities and Culture is one of the newest 
postgraduate degrees at Trinity College Dublin. It builds on TCD's 
four-hundred-year-old tradition of scholarship as one of the great 
universities of the world. TCD provides a liberal environment where 
independence of thought is highly valued and where staff and students 
are nurtured as individuals and are encouraged to achieve their full
