If you’re interested in learning more about digital-humanities methods and/or looking for a working vacation next summer, mark your calendars for June 6-9, 2011. The Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria (British Columbia) is one of the best opportunities for researchers of all backgrounds to pick up new skills from experts. Their courses include something for everyone, from digitization fundamentals to multimedia to GIS to text analysis.

Graduate students: sponsored tuition scholarships are available, first-come-first-served. Applications just opened today.

(Summer being what it is for scholars, DHSI is cross-scheduled with several other conferences; yours truly will be at the triennial Berkshire Conference on the History of Women at UMass Amherst. I’d be happy to hear from other Big Berks attendees who are interested in talking about digital research methods and/or publication.)
