Sobre o Evento

Winter School on Digital Humanities and Computational Social Sciences

June through August, 2022

FGV’s Digital Humanities Lab is pleased to invite you to participate in the Winter School on Digital Humanities and Computational Social Sciences. This initiative is funded by the Brazilian Ministry of Education (CAPES) and its Internationalization Program (PrInt).

The School is comprised of workshops and lectures in Portuguese and English, which will take place between June and August 2022, either remotely, in hybrid fashion, or in-person, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. All sessions will be held in the BRT Time Zone / Brasília Time UTC-03:00 (Standard Time).

It has a modular design in order to facilitate participation in lectures and courses of interest. Each session is "self-contained" and requires individual registration, which allows participants to choose which combinations of courses to take, based on their availability. The certificates of participation will specify in which activities, exactly, the participants took part in the School.

The School seeks to promote technical skills and encourage networking and peer support among those who work with computational methods and digital tools in the Social Sciences & History, and at cultural institutions such as archives, museums and documentation centers.

 

This event was financed in part by the Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior - Brasil (CAPES) - Finance Code 001.
