Subject: 3RD LAGOS SUMMER SCHOOL IN DIGITAL HUMANITIES(LSSDH-2019): Looking for Support Dear ALL, The Lagos Summer School in Digital Humanities (LSSDH) has entered its third edition this year. Organised by the Digital Humanities Unit, University of Lagos, the Lagos Summer School in Digital Humanities provides a platform to promote the principles and practice of Digital Humanities in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa, the first of its kind in this region. It also provides an international space for scholars and researchers in the Humanities and Social Sciences to receive training and acquire skills in a range of computer applications and digital tools that will redefine research and scholarship in these disciplines. (Details will be posted shortly). The 2nd edition, LSSDH-2018, was generously funded by the Volkswagen Foundation, Germany which enabled us to attract international DH experts and facilitators from Europe and North America. The funding also made it possible to invite about seventeen(17) participants from Cameroon, Ghana, Togo and over eighty(80) young and early career scholars from different tertiary institutions in Nigeria. I would like to request useful suggestions from any colleague on any funding organization that may be genuinely interested in supporting initiatives in DH, Technology & Society, and related fields. We need their help to fund the hosting of the 3rd Lagos Summer School in Digital Humanities(LSSDH-2019) this year. We would not want this Summer School to be suspended due to lack of funding. Time is already running out and we are not sure that Volkswagen may still be able to provide the support. Thank you very much indeed.
