2 Jul 2024 - 5 Jul 2024 TBA Edinburgh Futures Institute


An event organised by Cambridge Digital Humanities

Application deadline: 17 May 2024


Since 2021 a partnership of UK institutions has been involved in the creation and delivery of a summer school aimed at researchers in the digital humanities who intend to professionalise their software engineering skills. The Digital Humanities & Research Software Engineering Summer School 2024, hosted at the Edinburgh Futures Institute, combines talks and practical activities and will explore how the intersection of digital humanities and software engineering is shaped across different UK institutions.

Participants will have an opportunity to gain an invaluable insight into the roles and practices of Research Software Engineering in Digital Humanities research. Each day one of the partner institutions will take the lead in showcasing the practicalities of working in the field. Mornings will start with a series of presentations on matters ranging from careers in RSE to project life cycles. The afternoon sessions will consist of hands-on activities spanning topics such as effective data visualisation to sustainable coding and peer programming.


The event is co-organised by Cambridge Digital Humanities (Mary Chester-KadwellJonathan Blaney), the Edinburgh Centre for Data, Culture & Society (Lucia Michielin), King’s Digital Lab (Neil Jakeman), and The Alan Turing Institute (Federico Nanni) and it is supported by the Data/Culture Project (AHRC Grant Ref: AH/Y00745X/1) and the Society of Research Software Engineering.

Thanks to the support of The Alan Turing Institute and The Society of Research Software Engineering we will be able to provide a limited number of bursaries to cover costs towards travel and accommodations.
