CFP: NINES Fellowships for DHSI 2012 (10/26/2011)

NINES (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-century Electronic Scholarship http://www.nines.org) is again awarding a select number of fellowships to the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (http://www.dhsi.org) at the University of Victoria.  We are particularly invested in encouraging the development of high-quality digital scholarly projects in nineteenth-century studies.

The Digital Humanities Summer Institute provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies and how they are influencing teaching, research, dissemination, and
preservation in different disciplines.

As a sponsor for the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) 2012, NINES is offering five tuition-free slots to scholars of nineteenth-century literature and culture interested in the digital humanities. Tuition at DHSI usually costs $950 (student rate $500).

Anticipated course offerings for this year’s workshop (June 4-8) include:

  • Text Encoding Fundamentals and Their Application
  • Digitization Fundamentals and Their Application
  • Introduction to XSLT for Digital Humanists
  • Multimedia: Design for Visual, Auditory, and Interactive Electronic Environments
