Summer 2017 HDW Student Fellowships
The Humanities Digital Workshop invites applications from undergraduate and graduate students at Washington University in St. Louis for its summer fellowships. The fellowships pair students with humanities faculty engaged in digital humanities projects for 8 weeks, during which time students:
- gain exposure to digital humanities work on campus and at large
- work closely with faculty members and other students on an active project, and
- learn relevant digital humanities tools and standards
Past participants have found it a valuable professional development opportunity.
The ideal fellow has an interest in the application of technology to the humanities. While the needs of each project are different, typical activities include research and the preparation and preliminary analysis of textual and visual materials. Specialized technical skills are not required, though students with computational skills may find ways to make use of that knowledge.
The fellowships run from June 12 to August 4, 2017 and involve 30 hours of work per week for undergraduates, 27.5 hours per week for graduate students.
