DHOx2020 ONLINE EVENT: Registration now open
Due to COVID-19, sadly the Digital Humanities Oxford Summer School cannot run in its usual format this year.
Instead we are pleased to offer an online event, DHOx2020, from 13-15 July, which will run on Zoom. The online event is open to all, with a small registration fee to cover running costs.
The programme will feature a range of talks from convenors of the usual Digital Humanities Summer School strands, along with optional interactive sessions in smaller groups (for some of these you will need familiarity with specific software).
Your hosts for the three day event will be Oxford Professor of e-Research David De Roure, and Megan Gooch, Head of the Centre for Digital Scholarship and Digital Humanities Support at the University of Oxford.
How it works
There will be 9 expert talks over the three mornings, all of which you will be able to join. The lectures will give you a broad overview of the Digital Humanities topics covered in the Oxford Summer School, and the opportunity to ask the convenors your own questions.
Strand topics featured:
- Introduction to Digital Humanities
- Sculpting Digital Cultural Heritage
- Applied Data Analysis
- Humanities Data: Case Studies and Approaches
- Linked Data for Digital Humanities
- From Text to Tech
- Crowdsourced Research in the Humanities
- The Text Encoding Initiative
- When Archives Become Digital
You can find a short description of these topics, along with an outline programme, on our website.
Interactive sessions during the afternoons will offer a more hands-on experience in smaller groups. Once you have registered you will be given the opportunity to choose one interactive session to attend (subject to availability).
Cultures of Dissent in Eastern Europe (1945-1989): Research Approaches in the Digital Humanities
This 7-day seminar in digital humanities research methods is designed to expose a new generation of scholars in Cold War history and culture to methods of analysis and discovery involving computational techniques. Designed and run by NEP4DISSENT (New Exploratory Phase in Research on East European Cultures of Dissent), COST Action 16213, the inspiration for the course is built around the transfer of knowledge from technologists and data scientists to humanists.
CLARIN Café I: CLARIN in times of Corona (VIRTUAL EVENT)
In times of crisis, public support for policy measures is important. With the outbreak of COVID-19, the public in various countries across Europe has shown general support for the advice provided by National Health Institutes and governments. However, it is uncertain how this support will evolve once the perceived urgency and rationale of the policy measures changes over time. We have already seen growing information divergencies between state-controlled sources and social media. Furthermore, we see interesting dynamics in Corona-related vocabularies across countries and cultures (social distancing, 1,5 meter society or economy, etc.). The timely understanding of changes in public opinion, sentiments and citizen or crowd behavior is important for policy makers and health care professionals and of course food for thought for academic scholars.
