Full Version

The Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is an annual training event organised for the benefit of its delegates and for the advancement of research and scholarship in the variety of disciplines and professions they represent. DHOxSS works actively toward the creation of a more diverse, welcoming, and inclusive global community of digital humanities scholars and practitioners, and is therefore dedicated to the creation of a safe, respectful, and collegial experience for all attendees. Open, critically-engaged, and often challenging discourse is expected to flourish at DHOxSS. Participants are encouraged to respect and celebrate cultural and linguistic differences, and to be mindful of the international nature of our community in preparing presentations and engaging in conversation. There is no place at DHOxSS for harassment or intimidation of any kind, including that based on race, religion, ethnicity, language, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical or cognitive ability, age, appearance, or other group status. Unsolicited physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, and bullying behaviour are likewise unacceptable. The DHOxSS Directors and DHOxSS Organisational Committee are listed in the DHOxSS Handbook and on the DHOxSS website. In the event a participant has been made to feel unsafe or unwelcome at DHOxSS, any of these people are willing to assist you to find sources of advice. Any reports will be treated in confidence.
