Radboud DH Spring School

29-31 March 2017, Faculty of Arts, Radboud University Nijmegen

The spring school is open to both junior and senior humanities researchers, including research master students, PhD students and postdocs. The courses are very practical and focused on the development of personal digital skills.

Two parallel strands

  1. three-day full-time basic Python course. Python is widely used within many scientific domains and is the most popular choice within eHumanities. The only way to learn programming is by doing and therefore a large part of this 3-day course is spent on putting your new skills into practice.
  2. other topics will be taught in courses of one day or a half day. These courses focus on advanced Python programming skills (addressing machine learning), social network analysis and visualisation, oral history, working with speech recordings, and much more.

Participants of the three-day basic Python course therefore cannot participate in courses in the second strand.

Practical details

The spring school takes place at the Radboud campus in Nijmegen, 29-31 of March 2017. Participants may register for individual  courses separately, as some courses take half a day, while the basic programming course takes 3 full days.

The spring school is open for both Dutch and international participants. No previous knowledge of programming or certain tools is required but you do need to bring your own laptop. There is a limit on the number of available places for each of the courses (maximum of 30 people).

Deadline for registration is March 8. For more information and registration see here.
