Lakehead University Summer Institute for Advanced Studies

The Lakehead University Summer Institute for Advanced Studies offers
graduate courses in the use of computing technologies for research in the
humanities and social sciences. Scholars concerned with electronic publishing
might be interested in the course "Introduction to the use of archival
documents in publishing projects" taught by Marie-Louise Perron from the
National Archives of Canada. This Graduate Summer Institute aims to promote
and create a research environment where students can work with professional
staff and researchers from leading institutions across the world. Students
first learn about Hypermedia technologies, and then have the option to apply
them to their own research materials. There are two sessions to choose from
and all courses are taught at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario,

The MacKenzie Ward Trust is collaborating with Lakehead University in
organizing this innovative Graduate Summer School in 1998. The courses
offered at LUSIAS aim to bridge the gap between technologies and the social
sciences. The explosion of digital information has not yet been accompanied
by a similar growth in software tools to manage and organize digital data.
Hypermedia technologies offer the potential to resolve these information
management problems. They will enable students to investigate issues from
new angles and invite new ways of molding and presenting their research
materials. The completion of courses allows students to gain graduate level
credits or they can be used to further professional training.

There are two sessions in 1998:

Session I: May 11th to 30, 1998

Session II: July 6th to 25th, 1998
