NeDiMAH Early-Career Researcher Bursaries for DHOxSS Humanities 
Web of Data Workshop
Deadline: 22 April 2014


Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is one of the 
leading international training events in Digital Humanities. It 
is for researchers, project managers, research assistants, 
students, and anyone interested in Digital Humanities. DHOxSS 
delegates are introduced to a range of topics including the 
creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or 
publication of digital data in the humanities. Each delegate 
follows one of our five-day workshops and supplements this with 
additional morning parallel lectures. There will also be a 
(peer-reviewed) poster session giving delegates a chance to 
present their Digital Humanities work to those at the DHOxSS.

This year's DHOxSS will be held on 14-18 July 2014 and the 
five-day workshops offered are:

1. Introduction to Digital Humanities
2. Taking Control: Practical Scripting for Digital Humanities 
3. Data Curation and Access for the Digital Humanities
4. A Humanities Web of Data: Publishing, Linking and Querying on 
the Semantic Web
5. Using the Text Encoding Initiative for Digital Scholarly Editions

The NeDiMAH project has sponsored up to 6 bursaries of up to EUR 
500 each for those attending the Humanities Web of Data workshop 
in particular (see 
http://dhoxss.humanities.ox.ac.uk/2014/HumData.html). Applicants 
should be early-career researchers in the humanities, and must be 
working in participating NeDiMAH countries (see 
http://www.nedimah.eu/Contributing-Organisations) and priority 
will be given to applicants whose travel costs mean they would 
not otherwise be able to attend. ‘Early-Career Researcher’ is 
defined as up to five years post-phd (or equivalent).

The DHOxSS will offer an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge 
and participate in discussions about a wide range of digital 
techniques and research methods, as well as exploring key topics 
in depth with leading senior researchers and technologists.

The application form asks for a description (max 250 words) of 
how attending the Humanities Web of Data workshop in particular 
will benefit your research. Applications are due by 22 April 
2014. For more information see: 
http://dhoxss.humanities.ox.ac.uk/2014/bursaries.html and for 
enquiries email nedimah-bursaries at it.ox.ac.uk.
