May 1 - 5, 2018 (University of Ottawa)
A University of Ottawa and Carleton University Joint Initiative
Digital Humanities Summer Institute: Technologies East (DHSITE) at the University of Ottawa is a bilingual event introducing new computing technologies and their uses in education and research. It addresses topics such as digitizing, disseminating, and archiving data in various disciplines and using a variety of approaches.
DHSITE acts as a summer school, a conference, and a meeting place for practitioners, academics, students, and independent scholars — in short, anyone who works with or wants to learn about advanced technologies and their applications.
The institute is also a site of intellectual and cultural confluence. It brings together digital humanists working in both French and English across Central and Eastern Canada and Quebec, and it embraces a cross-institutional approach by involving industry and educational partners.
DHSITE this year will include an array of workshops and round tables that experiment with cutting-edge tools in the digital humanities.
Keynote speakers (confirmed):
- Michael E. Sinatra (Université de Montréal)
