The Digital Field Methods Institute is an annual, two-week-long summer event geared toward scholars who want to develop technological skills to support their research. We are an ongoing project sponsored by the Digital Writing and Research Lab of the University of Texas’ Rhetoric and Writing Department.

Explore Austin While You Play with New Tech

Given the University of Texas’ prime location, situated just north of downtown Austin, we take full advantage of the sights and sounds of this great city in planning our institute. Past institutes have included sound-gathering trips to Barton Springs, the city’s natural spring-fed pool, as well as a night-time excursion to see and hear Austin’s resident bat colony.

Of course, we also like to take advantage of the city’s food and music scene; we often provide Austin’s favorite breakfast tacos at our morning meetings, and we always organize evening outings around the city.
