Spring 2017 HDW Undergraduate Fellowships
The Humanities Digital Workshop announces openings for undergraduate students in its Spring 2017 Fellowships. The fellowships pair students with humanities faculty engaged in digital humanities projects for the academic semester, 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 humanities and a capacity for interest in the application of technology to them, but is not necessarily a humanities student, nor must he or she be highly technically experienced. Typical activities include markup of textual and visual material in XML or designing the display of same for the web, as well as tasks such as library and bibliographical research, and annotation and organization of primary source material.
The fellowship will involve 5 hours of work per week. Apart from a one-hour weekly meeting, most work will be flexible according to student schedules. Students will have an opportunity to renew the fellowship for the summer and the following year. Compensation is $10.50 an hour.
