The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) is an initiative of the Canadian Social Knowledge Institute (C-SKI) and led by the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) at the University of Victoria. DHSI provides an ideal environment for discussing and learning about new computing technologies, and how they are influencing the work of those in the Arts, Humanities and Library communities. The Institute incorporates intensive coursework, seminar participation, and lectures. During DHSI, we share ideas and methods and develop expertise in applying advanced technologies to our teaching, research, dissemination, and preservation. For more information, see www.dhsi.org.
