A University of Ottawa and Carleton University Joint Initiative
May 20-26, University of Ottawa
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. Since its launch in 2017, it has been addressing 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.
IMPORTANT NOTE! Students who wish to obtain course credit for any DHSITE workshop may do so in 2019. Please consult the registration page to get familiar with the procedure required for adding a DHSITE workshop to your course load during the Spring-Summer 2019 semester.
All the relevant information on this year’s courses and registration is available on the external website of the institute: www.dhsite.org. For any further information, contact Chris Tanasescu (University of Ottawa).
