Digital Humanities Research Hub

Training

The Hub contributes to a number of ongoing training initiatives at the School of Advanced Study, in addition to delivering a number of free training sessions that offer introductions to subjects including concepts of digital humanities, online research methods, data visualisation and text encoding.

Staff in the Hub deliver a range of teaching and training in digital methods and approaches for humanities researchers. This includes training aimed at cross-disciplinary audiences delivered by the Hub, as well as teaching and training delivered in collaboration with other Institutes in the School for specific disciplinary communities in Classics, English, History and Modern Languages.

Postgraduate teaching includes modules in digital classics offered as part of the intercollegiate MA in Classics and modules in digital editing offered as part of the Institute of English Studies’ MA in the History of the Book. Short courses and summer schools are also offered in 3D imaging and modelling(Opens in new window), digital epigraphy and papyrology, and digital scholarly editing.

The Hub delivers a number of free training sessions that offer introductions to subjects including concepts of digital humanities, online research methods, data visualisation and text encoding. The Sunoikisis Digital Classics series also offers free weekly research training taught collaboratively with scholars across the world. We host a collection of asynchronous training material on GitHub and contribute to tutorials on TEI XML for ancient texts at EpiDoc.

Our teaching and training are often delivered in collaboration with other universities and organisations in the UK and abroad, and we welcome opportunities to collaborate on bespoke training sessions or courses. The Hub is also developing a series of more intensive short courses in digital methods and approaches for researchers across the humanities, which will cover subjects including programming for humanists, software carpentry, and social media research for the humanities.
