Dear all,

A few more places are available at our workshop, Computer Technologies for the Historical Research of Intellectual Networks <http://www.thedigin.org/networkscf/>, forthcoming October 6th-9th in Jerusalem. In the workshop, sponsored by the National Library of Israel in the framework of the “Innovative Technologies in the Humanities” series, and by the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, leading international scholars will present digital humanities projects that combine intellectual history and network visualization technologies, and will teach the tools and methods that have been developed for them. A pre-circulated list of background reading will prepare the participants for the unique opportunity to test and explore some of the recently developed technological tools by themselves, with the close, hands-on guidance of international experts on the subject. The participants will have the chance to explore open-access tools, experiment with datasets from several case studies and, finally, connect with the thriving international community of historical network research.

DHSI 2014
2-6 June 2014

Dear Members of the DHSI Community,

A quick note of update for those who are subscribed to the DHSI e-mail list, following the announcement of our anticipated 2014 offerings over the summer.

We're very pleased at the response we've received already in relation to our offerings for 2014, the result of consultation with our community about the sorts of 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.  We had so many good ideas that -- even as we added more courses for 2014 (hitting a total of 27, before we ran out of rooms) -- we couldn't facilitate all of the excellent suggestions this year ... so please look also to 2015 for even more innovative and engaging programming over and above the core and foundational DH skills on which our time together is based at DHSI, and also look for an announcement of some DHSI activities at the Canadian Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences at Brock University.

At the moment, preparations for 2014 are already humming along in Victoria, and our 'quiet' launch of our registration over the weekend 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!

We're very, very happy to welcome our new and returning sponsors last year and this -- among them the University of Victoria and its Library, the University of British Columbia Library, the Innovation Lab @ VIU Cowichan and Vancouver Island University, the Simon Fraser University Library, the Simpson Center for the Humanities at University of Washington, the College of Arts at University of Guelph, Centre for Digital Humanities in the Department of English at Ryerson University, English at North Carolina State University, Hamilton College DHi, Bucknell University, Texas A&M University, the Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC) project, Modernist Versions Project (MVP), NINES, the Cultural Evolution of Religion Research Consortium, the Advanced Research Consortium (ARC), the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory / Le Collaboratoire scientifique des écrits du Canada (CWRC/CSÉC), the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) project, the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO), the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS), the Canadian Society for Digital Humanities / Société canadienne des humanités numériques (CSDH/SCHN), the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH), the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing (SHARP), and the Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory (HASTAC), and the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).  All of us in the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) are so very grateful for such good company!

Further, as we do every year, we'll have the pleasure of awarding a number of early tuition scholarship spots.  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.


If you've not yet seen the list of 2014 course offerings (at http://dhsi.org/courses.php) and our schedule (at http://dhsi.org/schedule.php), we'd really encourage you to do so.

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, Aimée Morrison (U Waterloo) and Alex Gil (Columbia U) -- as well as our DHSI Colloquium, lunchtime unconference sessions, birds-of-a-feather gatherings, and much more!

It is shaping up to be another banner year, and we hope very much that you are considering joining us for it!

All best,

 For the DHSI team
