Focus: The Lagos Summer School in Digital Humanities (LSSDH) has now become an annual interdisciplinary research and capacity building space for the promotion of the principles and practice of digital humanities in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa. It is the initiative of the University of Lagos Digital Humanities Research Unit. LSSDH was conceived as a training and research platform for young scholars and early career academics willing to explore tools, techniques and theory offered by digital humanities for globally-competitive research and digital scholarship. Our primary aim is: “to raise, develop and equip a new generation of scholars and researchers in the humanities and social sciences for innovative digital scholarship, national development and global competitiveness”.
Minimum Education Level: No Minimum

LSSDH2018 also hopes to offer a unique space for multidisciplinary interactions that will strengthen the relevance and significance of the humanities through the contribution they can make to technological development. The exposure of participants to how they can employ new technologies for research and study in the humanities can potentially open up great possibilities for cutting edge innovative research and national development. As Burr (2016) asserts, the fact is, the Arts possess a large number of areas in which computational methods, software and hardware systems can be applied. Therefore, application of digital technologies is believed to potentially help scholars in the humanities and liberal sciences to develop academic and professional competencies suited to address a range of multidimensional human and social problems.
