NEW Field School in Digital Humanities!

The BISC’s Field School in the Digital Humanities offers an immersive, 5-week, introduction to the field of the digital humanities, an emerging field of study concerned with investigating the intersection between digital culture, technology, and the traditional arts and humanities disciplines, such as history and literary studies.

Students participating in the Field School will gain exposure to the field through a combination of hands-on digital activity, facilitated introductions to key digital projects in the UK cultural sector, and theoretical debate with leading scholars and practitioners in the digital humanities community at both North American and European universities and cultural institutions, including The British Museum, The British Library, and The Imperial War Museum. Throughout the duration of the Field School, students will blend together these aspects of practice, theory, and community to establish their own digital micro-projects which will be at the heart of a special conference — the BISC THATCamp —  hosted by Field School participants, and opened to the European DH community of researchers, administrators, and others working in the field of the digital humanities.

To learn more about the program and how to apply refer to our webpage about the new Field School in Digital Humanities, read the BISC Digital Humanities blog, and follow us on Twitter.
