The annual Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School offers training to anyone with an interest in the Digital Humanities, including academics at all career stages, students, project managers, and people who work in IT, libraries, and cultural heritage. Delegates choose one of several parallel workshops running throughout the week, supplementing their training with expert guest lectures.
Since 2015, Transforming Musicology have organised a Digital Musicology workshop within the summer school providing an introduction to computational and informatics methods that can be, and have been, successfully applied to musicology. Participants come from a range of career stages, disciplinary backgrounds and institutions, in a course that introduces working with as broad a set of tools and materials as possible.
The workshop comprises of a series of lectures and hands-on sessions, supplemented with reports from musicology research exemplars. Theoretical lectures are paired with practical sessions in which attendees are guided through their own exploration of the topics and tools covered. Laptops are loaned to participants with the appropriate specialised software installed and preconfigured.
A report on the 2016 workshop can be read on our blog.
We are indebted to contributing speakers and tutors from beyond Ttransforming Musicology without whom the workshop would not have been possible.
