DH Fellows Application

Each semester, the Digital Humanities Lab appoints one or more Digital Humanities Fellows to assist with courses that have a strong digital humanities component. These positions provide semester-long support for graduate students to engage with DH methods and theories in a classroom setting. DHLab staff will work with Fellows to design DH assignments, arrange access to electronic content, and provide specialized technical training. Visit the DH Fellows page to learn about our current recipients and their courses!
