Originally called The Digital Humanities Winter Institute (DHWI), HILT was inspired by the model pioneered at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI). HILT is an intensive digital humanities training institute: a slate of engaging courses taught by some of the best scholars and teachers in the digital humanities, plentiful opportunities to meet and network with colleagues, and access to all the cultural resources of the Washington, D.C., area. HILT has been held at University of Maryland, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), University of Texas at Austin and the University of Pennsylvania.
This was the 6th year of HILT! Participants and instructors gathered from Monday, June 4 to Friday, June 8 on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In addition to the conference’s day-time sessions, participants enjoyed opportunities to explore the city through local dine-arounds and special cultural heritage experiences.
We welcomed 126 participants to HILT for our 5th anniversary year from Monday, June 5 to Friday, June 9! Participants and instructors gathered in Austin, Texas on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin. HILT was hosted on campus by the UT Libraries and the School of Information.
We welcomed 100 participants to HILT from Monday, June 13 to Friday, June 17! Participants and instructors gathered in Indianapolis, Indiana on the campus of the Indiana Univesity-Purdue University Indianapolis.
HILT 2015 occurred from Monday, July 27 to Friday, July 31 on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, located in Indianapolis, IN and was sponsored by the Center for Digital Scholarship at the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis University Library, the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, and MATRIX: Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences at Michigan State University.
HILT 2015 welcomed over 100 digital humanists to the IUPUI campus, with representatives from liberal arts institutions, research universities, and cultural heritage organizations. More than half of attendees were graduate students, early career scholars, or humanities adjuncts representing over a dozen different humanities disciplines and sub-disciplines. This iteration of HILT responded to the growing demand for new types of digital aptitudes, as well as to our recognition of how important these opportunities are in revealing the daily work and research lives of digital humanities scholars.
