Digital Humanities Summer Institute 2016 Attendees

The Simpson Center for the Humanities announces its support for the 2016 Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. Five teams totaling fourteen people will travel from the University of Washington for the June 2016 institute. They include master's and doctoral students, faculty, UW libraries staff, and a department chair.

The Simpson Center has been a sponsor of the institute for five years. For the second year, it is also partnering with the Northwest Five Consortium—Lewis & Clark College, Reed College, University of Puget Sound, Whitman College, and Willamette University—which enhances students’ experience at these liberal arts colleges through development of faculty as teacher-scholars. Selected faculty from the consortium will also receive sponsorships to attend the DHSI.
