Registration is now open for the Alan Turing Institute's Digital Humanities & Research Software Engineering virtual summer school, running from 26 - 30 July 2021.
The one-week summer school will involve five intensive training days where the learners have an opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of the role of a Research Software Engineer in Digital Humanities research. This is an introductory course open to all (including postgraduate students, early career researchers, data scientists), and will require full time (8h/ day) or part time (4h/ day) remote attendance for a week in the UK timezone (BST).
Morning lectures will introduce examples of research projects in Digital Humanities that have strongly benefitted from the contribution of Research Software Engineering experts in the team. The afternoon sessions will consist of hands-on activities on the topics presented in the morning. Each day will finish with an open discussion with a speaker on their career in between RSE and Digital Humanities.
Please note you can apply either for the lectures only (theory) OR for both lectures and practicals (full experience of the summer school). You will have an option in the application form to select which of these you are interested in.
