*Announcing the Digital Humanities Winter Institute*

*Join Us:*
Monday January 7, 2013- Friday, January 11, 2013
University of Maryland
College Park, MD USA

MITH will host the first annual Digital Humanities Winter Institute
(DHWI) http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi ,
from Monday, January 7, 2013, to Friday, January 11, 2013, at the
University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. We’re delighted to be
expanding the model pioneered by the highly-successful Digital Humanities
Summer Institute (DHSI  http://www.dhsi.org ) at the University of Victoria
to the United States.

DHWI will provide an opportunity for scholars to learn new skills relevant
to different kinds of digital scholarship while mingling with like-minded
colleagues in coursework, social events, and lectures during an intensive,
week-long event located amid the many attractions of the Washington, D.C.

Courses are open to all skill levels and will cater to many different
interests. For the 2013 Institute we’ve assembled an amazing group of
instructors  http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/?q=node/25  who will teach everything
from introductory courses on project development and programming, to
intermediate level courses on image analysis, teaching with multimedia, and
data curation. DHWI will also feature more technically-advanced courses on
text analysis and linked open data. We hope that the
curricula http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/?q=courses we’ve assembled will
appeal to graduate students, faculty, librarians, and
museum professionals as well as participants from government and
non-governmental organizations.

An exciting program of extracurricular
events http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/?q=dhwi_public_dh will accompany the
formal DHWI courses to capitalize on the Institute’s
proximity to the many cultural heritage organizations in the region. This
stream of activities, which we’re calling “DHWI Public Digital Humanities,”
will include an API workshop, a hack-a-thon, and opportunities to
contribute videos and other materials to the
4Humanities http://humanistica.ualberta.ca/ campaign to document the
importance of the humanities for contemporary

Both the outward-looking DHWI Public Digital Humanities program and the
week of high-caliber, in-depth digital humanities coursework will be kicked
off by the Institute Lecture  http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/?q=keynote . This
year’s speaker will be Seb Chan, currently the Director of Digital &
Emerging Media at the Smithsonian, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in
New York City.

We hope that many of you will join us this winter in Maryland for what
promises to be a terrific event. Registration is now available at this
site http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/?q=registration

Like DHSI, we will be offering a limited number of sponsored student
scholarships  http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/?q=scholarships  to help cover the
cost of attending the Institute. The scholarships are made possible through
the generosity of this year’s DHWI Instructors and the Maryland Institute
for Technology in the Humanities
