London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship
Institute of English Studies,
Centre for Computing in the Humanities, King's College London,
Centre for Digital Humanities, University College London

The London Seminar in Digital Text & Scholarship focuses on the ways in 
which the digital medium remakes the relationship of readers, writers, 
scholars, technical practitioners and designers to the manuscript and 
printed book. Its discussions are intended to inform public debate and 
policy as well as to stimulate research and provide a broad forum in 
which to present its results. Although the forum is primarily for those 
working in textual and literary studies, history of the book, humanities 
computing and related fields, its mandate is to address and involve an 
audience of non-specialists. Wherever possible the issues it raises are 
meant to engage all those who are interested in a digital future for the

About the DHSI

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria
provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new
computing technologies and how they are influencing the work of those
in the Arts, Humanities and Library communities. The institute takes
place across a week of intensive coursework, seminar participation,
and lectures. It brings together faculty, staff, and graduate students
from different areas of the Arts, Humanities, Library and Archives
communities and beyond. During the DHSI, we share ideas and methods,
and develop expertise in applying advanced technologies to our
teaching, research, dissemination and preservation.
