The Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) offers an opportunity for students and faculty to gain practical knowledge and expertise in digital research methodologies. In the past two years, DHSI has expanded its course offerings to include a course for digital scholarship in music. Entitled "Music Encoding Fundamentals and their Applications,” this course offers an introduction to the theory and practice of encoding electronic musical scores, analyzing those scores, and aligning them with other media such as audio and video. It is designed for students, early career researchers and senior academics who are interested in a music-encoding project, or for those who would like to better understand the philosophy, theory, and practicalities of encoding notated music. Moreover, it will consider ways of incorporating sound and text files with encoded music notation. Participants should have a basic knowledge of how to read music, but no prior experience with coding is assumed.

The course will run on June 8-12, 2020, on the beautiful campus of the University of Victoria.

Full-tuition scholarships are still available! For more information, see
