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 colleagues.

If you’re a TCU graduate student and you want to apply for a Graduate Student Travel Grant, you’ll need to present at the Colloquium to qualify for the travel grant (up to $800 for international travel).

Proposals are now being accepted for presentations at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute Colloquium, to be held in June 2018 at the University of Victoria. Open to all DHSI attendees, the DHSI Colloquium offers an opportunity to present research and projects within an engaging, collegial atmosphere. Submissions are peer-reviewed, with participants subsequently invited to contribute to a DHSI-themed special issue in an open-access journal.

We invite proposals of 300-500 words for these presentations. Proposals may focus on any topic relating to the wider Digital Humanities. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the scholar’s role in personal and institutional research projects, tool application and development, perspectives on Digital Humanities implications for the individual’s own research and pedagogy, reports on activities from the field, etc. Submissions are welcome from emerging and established scholars alike, including, but not limited to, faculty, graduate students, early career scholars and humanities scholars who are new to the Digital Humanities; librarians, and those in cultural heritage, alt-academics, academic professionals, and those in technical programs.

The Studio encourages returning DHSI attendees to apply for the Colloquium.
