…I arrived in Oxford OK. And it is raining, and raining, and raining. Still, my college room is nice and the ale in the pubs is running freely. I am catching the tale-end of the Oxford Digital Humanities Summer School in the particular hope of attending the last session on ‘putting on a summer school’. A summer school has been on the agenda for the past year or so in Australia, and now there is an international alliance of DH summer schools, it may be a little easier.
The keynote on the Friday morning was by Professor Andrew Prescott, head of the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London that is available on his blog: Making the Digital Human: anxieties, possibilities, challenges. A very provocative discussion on the state of the field in the UK.
