May 26: Roots and Routes Summer Institute

This summer, members of the DSU will be conducting workshops on Islandora and OpenRefine at the Roots and Routes Summer Institute at UTSC. From the Roots and Routes 2014 page on Serai:

Unlike traditional academic conferences, the Roots & Routes Summer Institute features a combination of informal presentations, seminar-style discussions of shared materials, hands-on workshops on a variety of digital tools, and small-group project development sessions. The institute welcomes participants from a range of disciplines with an interest in engaging with digital scholarship; technical experience is not a requirement. Graduate students (MA and PhD), postdoctoral fellows and faculty are all encouraged to apply.
