Each June, the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada hosts the largest, longest-running Digital Humanities Summer Institute, which offers about 40-50 intensive week-long workshops on a wide variety of tools, methods, and topics related to the digital humanities. As a two-time past participant, I can highly recommend this professional development opportunity for faculty interested in digital scholarship and digital humanities.
Due to COVID-19, the 2021 institute will again be held virtually across two weeks: June 7-11 and June 14-18. This year the organizers decided to make the workshops free to all. Additionally, the DHSI Lectures are open to anyone, along with several aligned conferences. Although you will miss out on the gorgeous scenery of Vancouver Island and the splendid city of Victoria, this is an unprecedented opportunity to jump into DH with some of the best in the field. Check out these offerings and consider registering for the talks and a workshop or two!
