The CDH is delighted to announce our project slate for 2017-18! Our team has more than doubled since this time last year and with new programmers, developers, designers, we are enormously excited about the additional support we are able to offer our returning projects. Our four sponsored projects are all returning from previous grant years and we look forward to seeing them through to completion. In addition, we welcome our individual project grants from graduate students and postdocs in Civil Engineering, English, History, and Near Eastern Studies who will also meet together as a cohort dedicated to database design. You can read more about each project in more detail via our “Research” page.
An update from Alexander Baron-Raiffe.
During Add-Drop period, take a look at the undergraduate course offerings related to digital humanities. Some of these courses offer the opportunity to develop technical skill sets applicable to digital humanities research in computer science and linguistics, while others probe into the media-dominated era we live in that allowed for the rise of digital humanities as a discipline. All of the following courses are eligible as electives for the digital track of the Humanities certificate program (https://humstudies.princeton.edu/certificate/#plan).
Every two years the Center for Digital Humanities seeks a two-year postdoctoral research associate. The successful candidate will collaborate with current Center staff, Princeton faculty, library staff, and graduate students while working on their own project, to be completed within the term of the fellowship. We seek innovative scholars who will bring theoretical, methodological, and technical expertise and research questions to the Center. Scholars in all disciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be required to teach one introduction to digital humanities course each year, subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, and will carry the title of lecturer when teaching.
