Radboud Digital Humanities Spring School 2017

1 Feb 2017 - 00:00

This spring school offers courses into several widely-used techniques and tools in Digital Humanities and will take place on 29-31 March 2017 at Radboud University, the Netherlands.

The Spring School will be given in two parallel strands. The first strand of will contain a three days fulltime basic Python course. Python is widely used within many scientific domains and the most popular choice within eHumanities. The only way to learn programming is by doing and therefore a large part of this 3-day course is spent on putting your new skills into practice.

In the parallel strand the other topics will be taught in courses of one day or a half day. These courses focus on advanced Python programming skills (addressing machine learning), social network analysis and visualisation, oral history and working with speech recordings, and much more.

Participants of the three days' basic Python course therefore cannot participate in courses in the second strand.

The courses are targeted towards both junior and senior humanities researchers, including research master students, PhD students and postdocs. The courses are very practical and focussed on the development of personal digital skills.

Time and Location

The spring school takes place at the Radboud campus in Nijmegen, the Netherlands and will be held on 29-30-31 of March 2017. Participants are free to register for every course separately, as some courses take half a day, while the basic programming course takes 3 full days.

This school is open for both Dutch and International participants, and no previous knowledge of programming or certain tools is required but you do need to bring your own laptop. There is a limit on the number of available places for each of the courses (maximum of 30 people). Deadline for registration is March 8.
