DHSI 2015
June 2015: 1-5, 8-12, 15-19

Dear Colleagues,

We’re very pleased to announce the 2015 Digital Humanities Summer

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute provides an ideal environment for
discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are
influencing teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation
in different disciplines, via a community-based approach.

A time of intensive coursework, seminars, and lectures, participants at
DHSI share ideas and methods, and develop expertise in using advanced
technologies. Every summer, the institute brings together faculty, staff,
and students from the Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives communities
as well as independent scholars and participants from areas beyond.

Described by one participant as an event that "combines the best aspects
of a skills workshop, international conference, and summer camp," the DHSI
prides itself on its friendly, informal, and collegial atmosphere. We
invite you to join the DHSI community in Victoria for a time of focused
practice, learning, and connecting with (and making new) friends and

  Fabulous 2015 Offerings (Registration & Scholarships)

Offerings for 2015 are the result of consultation with our community about
the topics and material we'd all like to see covered at DHSI now and in
the future, as well as a call for proposals for courses among members of
our community.  This year, we're able to have a number of additional
courses on offer and, overall, smaller class sizes to facilitate better
our learning together! As well, following DHSIers’ suggestions, there is
also the opportunity to take more than one course, by having several
fabulous DHSI offerings during the weeks just before (1-5 June) and after
(15-19 June) DHSI’s core week of 8-12 June.

At the moment, preparations for 2015 are already humming along in
Victoria, and our 'quiet' launch of our registration earlier has resulted
in courses beginning to fill ... even a bit ahead of anticipated schedule.
 As in the past: if there's a course you or a member of your team
absolutely must have, we’d recommend registration earlier rather than
later for it!

If you've not yet seen the list of 2015 course offerings (at
http://dhsi.org/courses.php; also below) and our schedule (at
http://dhsi.org/schedule.php), we'd really encourage you to do so.  We’re
pretty excited about it!  And, in addition to a great mix of classic
courses and new ones recommended by our community, we've got some great
talks planned by, among others, David Hoover (NYU), Claire Warwick (U
Durham), Malte Rehbein (U Passau), and Constance Crompton (UBC-Okanagan)
-- as well as our DHSI Colloquium, lunchtime unconference sessions,
birds-of-a-feather gatherings, and much more!

Further, as we do every year, we'll have the pleasure of awarding a number
of tuition scholarships.  Application is via
http://dhsi.org/scholarships.php, and these scholarships cover tuition
costs with the exception of a small, non-refundable administration fee
(students $150, non-students $300).  The absolute deadline to apply for
scholarships is 14 February, though the scholarship committee considers
applications on a regular, rolling basis and evaluates applications based
on need, merit, and course availability at the time of evaluation;
scholarship spots tend to fill exceptionally quickly.  We’re also very
pleased to be working with ACH and GO::DH for sponsored travel bursaries
(!); details on our website.

   . . . And a new Graduate Certificate in DH!

Recently, U Victoria has launched a DHSI-based Graduate Certificate
program 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 Victoria and
elsewhere, or on its own. Furthermore, one of the most unique elements of
this program is that it allows those who come to DHSI to receive graduate
university credit for the work they've done while at DHSI, in combination
with courses at other partner institutes (Oxford, Leipzig, and HILT, among
many others) and institutions. Please see our homepage announcements bar
for further details and news about the program.


It is shaping up to be another banner year, and we hope very much that you
are considering joining us for it!  (And do tell a friend!)

All best,

  For the DHSI team
