The IDHMC sponsors unpaid internships for undergraduate students in Communication, Computer Science, English, Education, History, Hispanic Studies, Modern Languages, Visualization, and other fields relevant to the digital humanities projects we support. Interns work up to ten hours a week on innovative research projects in a variety of disciplines. Most projects include technical training in CMS software (such as Drupal or WordPress), digital collection software (such as Omeka), text encoding using the oXygen XML editor, and server-side programming and development including PHP, HTML/CSS, and other tools. We also welcome students who can assist with web development, graphic design and publicity. Since training is part of the internship, we do not require prior experience – only willingness to learn new things and to think about humanities scholarship in new ways. IDHMC internships provide valuable experience and training that can help you to reach a variety of academic and professional goals. If you are accepted, we strongly encourage you to contact your departmental advisor to see if you can obtain course credit for your internship.
