Would you like to learn more about digital humanities? If so, you might be one of our next interns!

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. As an intern, you will work up to ten hours per week (depending on your schedule) 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. If you are accepted, you may be able to obtain course credit for your internship. We will work with you to find out what your options are.

The deadline for Spring internships is NOVEMBER 27. Click on the Internship Guidelines for details about the application process and the projects you might work on. And if you have any questions, please contact Dr. Maura Ives.
