Digital Humanities @ Oxford Summer School success

The 10th anniversary Digital Humanities @ Oxford Summer School took place over the long vacation, once again online, with a mixture of morning lectures and afternoon interactive sessions over the four days from 12-15 July 2021. The programme covered diverse digital topics, from Text Encoding and Linked Data, to visualising cultural heritage and digital musicology. 

The special 10th anniversary talks allowed us to welcome back contributors to past editions of summer school, and featured a talk on next generation careers around the Digital Humanities, as well as a special Keynote talk on the Living with Machines Project by Professor Ruth Ahnert from the Alan Turing Institute.

Over 430 people attended the virtual event, making it our biggest Digital Humanities event ever. The online format once again allowed us to offer the specialised content at an accessible price and allowed us to welcome participants from around the world. We built on the success of the 2020 event by expanding the duration of teaching time and breadth of content.

We look forward to welcoming participants to our 2022 Digital Humanities Summer School, this time we hope in Oxford. Sign up for our mailing list or follow us on Twitter to get updates and be notified when bookings open.
