Aimed at those who have an interest in becoming a Research Software Engineer in the humanities, or using research software engineering practices in their current or future role, the Digital Humanities Research Software Engineering Summer School is a summer school that combines 2 days of online talks (24–25 July 2023) and 2 days of in-person workshops (27–28 July 2023, by application) for an unmatched learning experience to help boost your skill set and career.
The summer school co-organised by four institutions leading the way in the Digital Humanities today: Cambridge Digital Humanities (Mary Chester-Kadwell), Edinburgh Centre for Data, Culture & Society (Lucia Michielin), King’s Digital Lab (Neil Jakeman) and The Alan Turing Institute (Federico Nanni). The last summer school was hosted by The Alan Turing Institute in 2021 as a virtual online event, so Cambridge Digital Humanities is delighted to be hosting the in-person part of the event at Cambridge University (27-28 July 2023).
Participants will have an opportunity to gain an invaluable insight into the roles and practices of the Research Software Engineer in Digital Humanities research. Topics include careers in RSE, project life cycle, rapid prototyping, collaborative coding, testing practices, containers and serverless, high-performance computing, structure from motion (3D) and teaching computational methods.
This event is ideal for those who already have some experience of coding and may be familiar with some computational methods within humanities projects. Participants may be digital humanities scholars, early career researchers, postgraduate students, data scientists, software engineers in other disciplines considering a move into humanities, or have another similar role within higher education or collections institutions.
The 2 days of online talks are free of charge but with a limit on numbers. The 2 days of in-person hands-on workshops are by application and carry a small fee (£60) to cover catering for the event.
