UCT Libraries, in conjunction with UCT e-Research Centre, Oxford University and University of Hertfordshire, is excited to host a Digital Scholarship workshop series from 27th-30th June 2016. Along with local colleagues and projects, we will be joined by two leading international Digital Scholarship experts, Adam Crymble and Pip Willcox.

Adam Crymble is a lecturer of Digital History, University of Hertfordshire. His contributions consider the benefits and some of the challenges of integrating digital skills into the university. His approach adheres to principles of ‘good’ research and exclusively uses free resources. Adam is also actively involved in digital publishing. He is an editor of The Programming Historian, an open access, peer-reviewed monograph that provides introductory digital history lessons to those looking to learn new ways to engage with the past.

Pip Willcox is the Head of the Centre for Digital Scholarship at the Bodleian Libraries, holds a research post at the University of Oxford e-Research Centre, and co-directs the annual Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School. The Centre is a hub for translating innovative digital technologies into multidisciplinary academic practice and public engagement and Pip is an advocate for engaging new audiences with multidisciplinary scholarship, and digital methods and technologies. Her interests include book history, materiality, editing, and text encoding. Pip serves on the Text Encoding Initiative Board of Directors and the Digital Renaissance Editions Advisory Board.
