We work with our academic colleagues to facilitate research seminars and workshops, often building on current projects or looking to write grant applications. These are usually invitation-only events and often include visitors, from other universities and from related fields of work.

Events, training and fellowships

We run a range of talks, workshops, training events, symposiums, and conferences. Many are open to the public: please come along!


Collaborating with institutions like The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) and Digital Scholarship at Oxford (DiSc), the Centre for Digital Scholarship offers a wide range of events and workshops giving scholars working in the field opportunities to showcase new research and providing those with less experience in Digital Scholarship with a greater sense of the opportunities this space has to offer. The idea is to inspire and engage new audiences with new technologies, seeding ideas and approaches across and between disciplines.

Workshops and summer school

The Centre for Digital Scholarship co-directs the Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) and convenes its popular week-long workshop strand, An Introduction to Digital Humanities.

Working in association with our colleagues at IT Services and Digital Scholarship @ Oxford we run occasional workshops, many of which emerge from DHOxSS. If you have an unmet training need, please get in touch.
