Join our mailing list: dhoxss-announce-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk for DHOxSS 2015.

The Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is the annual training event at the University of Oxford taking place this year on 14 -18 July 2014. It is for researchers, project managers, research assistants, students, and anyone interested in Digital Humanities. DHOxSS delegates are introduced to a range of topics including the creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or publication of digital data for the humanities. Each delegate follows one of our five-day workshops and supplements this with guest lectures. There is also be a (peer-reviewed) poster session giving delegates a chance to present posters on their Digital Humanities work to those at the DHOxSS.

DHOxSS 2014 is primarily located at Wolfson College and IT Services, Banbury Road. See our Venues and Travel page for more information.

DHOxSS has gone mobile! There is a mobile app available for mobile, tablet, and web platforms.

DHOxSS is a collaboration for Digital Humanities at Oxford between the University of Oxford's IT Services, the Oxford e-Research Centre (OeRC), the Bodleian Libraries, the Oxford Internet Institute (OII), and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities. DHOxSS 2014 is directed by Dr James Cummings and has an organisational committee representing these stakeholders.

This year we are grateful to be able to include the collaboration with DH colleagues outside the University of Oxford. We should especially note the substantial contributions of the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to the Data Curation and Access workshop. External collaborating institutions include:
