The Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) 2018 will take place at Keble College from 2-6 July 2018. There will be the usual popular programme of workshops and lectures, as well as optional evening activities.

DHOxSS offers a range of training workshops to anyone with an interest in the Digital Humanities, including academics at all career stages, students, project managers, and people who work in IT, libraries, and cultural heritage.

Each participant follows one of our workshop strands throughout the week, supplementing their training with expert guest lectures.

I came away inspired, both for my current and future research

Keble College was founded in 1870 and is now one of the largest Oxford colleges, situated adjacent to University Parks and the Natural History Museum. Lunches will be served in the large Victorian Gothic Dining Hall, allowing participants and speakers from different workshop strands to network and socialise.

Accommodation will also be available (on a first come, first served basis) in the College grounds.

We are planning to open registration in Spring 2018, with full details of the workshop strands, presentations, evening events and optional excursions.
