A new call for applications is available for a training workshop on Digital Humanities in Oxford, July 14-18, 2014.
NeDiMAH Early-Career Researcher Bursaries for DHOxSS Humanities Web of Data Workshop
Deadline: 22 April 2014
Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is one of the leading international training events in Digital Humanities. It is for researchers, project managers, research assistants, students, and anyone interested in Digital Humanities. DHOxSS delegates are introduced to a range of topics including the creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or publication of digital data in the humanities. Each delegate follows one of our five-day workshops and supplements this with additional morning parallel lectures. There will also be a (peer-reviewed) poster session giving delegates a chance to present their Digital Humanities work to those at the DHOxSS.
This year’s DHOxSS will be held on 14-18 July 2014 and the five-day workshops offered are:
- Introduction to Digital Humanities
- Taking Control: Practical Scripting for Digital Humanities Projects
- Data Curation and Access for the Digital Humanities
- A Humanities Web of Data: Publishing, Linking and Querying on the Semantic Web
- Using the Text Encoding Initiative for Digital Scholarly Editions
The NeDiMAH project has sponsored up to 6 bursaries of up to EUR
500 each for those attending the Humanities Web of Data workshop in particular (see http://dhoxss.humanities.ox.ac.uk/2014/HumData.html). Applicants should be early-career researchers in the humanities, and must be working in participating NeDiMAH countries (see
http://www.nedimah.eu/Contributing-Organisations) and priority will be given to applicants whose travel costs mean they would not otherwise be able to attend. ‘Early-Career Researcher’ is defined as up to five years post-phd (or equivalent).
The DHOxSS will offer an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge and participate in discussions about a wide range of digital techniques and research methods, as well as exploring key topics in depth with leading senior researchers and technologists.
The application form asks for a description (max 250 words) of how attending the Humanities Web of Data workshop in particular will benefit your research. Applications are due by 22 April 2014. For more information see:
