UVic English and DHSI Offer Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities

The U Victoria Department of English and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) are pleased to announce a Graduate Certificate in Digital Humanities, with applications received beginning September 2014 for intake in May 2015.  The certificate program  can be taken in conjunction with other graduate degrees at UVic or on its own.  Furthermore, one of the most unique elements of this program is that it allows the hundreds of those who come each summer for DHSI to receive graduate university credit for the work they’ve done while at DHSI.

Of this initiative, department Chair Robert Miles says, “This program builds perfectly on well-acknowledged local strengths in this emerging area and continues to put UVic at the forefront of innovative DH research and pedagogy. It puts students first and leverages our unique strengths to create a truly exciting opportunity.” To these ends, the new Certificate sees the English department partner with the DHSI and its extensive international network of partner-sponsors, including similar institutes and renowned institutions and groups worldwide; leading professional organizations such as the Modern Language Association, the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, the international Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations; and many others. The program will be featured in the coming year’s academic calendar; a template of the program proposal can be found at http://web.uvic.ca/~siemens/DH(SI)GradCertificateProposal.pdf.

For further information, please contact program directors Ray Siemens (before 1 July 2014) and Stephen Ross (after 1 July 2014).

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI: http://dhsi.org<http://dhsi.org/>/) is run, annually, by the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL: http://etcl.uvic.ca http://etcl.uvic.ca/ ). From 2-6 June 2014, the DHSI team (http://dhsi.org/bios.php) will welcome some 600 participants from around the world to U Victoria.
