Digital Humanities Summer Institute 2018 Attendees

Each we support the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, sending teams of UW faculty, students, and staff to attend. We also partner 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 also receive Simpson Center support to attend the DHSI.

Learn more about applying for the Digital Humanities Summer Institute through the Simpson Center.
