Digital Humanities Associate Fellowship
UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM
October 2023–June 2024
The Museum’s Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies and the William Levine Family Institute for Holocaust Education are pleased to invite applications for the Digital Humanities Associate Fellowship Program, designed for students currently enrolled in a master’s degree program or completing their undergraduate education. Students who have completed more than one year of doctoral work will not be considered.
The Museum welcomes applications from students in the use of digital technology for research and teaching in all academic disciplines, including history, political science, literature, Jewish studies, computer science, psychology, sociology, geography, and others. Students outside the field of history are encouraged to apply.
The Digital Humanities Associate Fellowship (DHAF) recognizes the increasing importance and use of Digital Humanities (DH) in Holocaust research and teaching and supports its practices, possibilities, and applications for the field and the Museum. This (relatively) young academic specialty seeks to apply the wealth of new digital techniques and technologies to the problems of humanities research and education. With the DHAF program, the Museum seeks to increase capacity for expanding the application of digital techniques across the institution and the field of Holocaust and Genocide studies.
While at the Museum, the Digital Humanities Associate Fellows will develop and conduct independent research projects under the supervision of a Museum mentor, interact with staff and visiting scholars in residence, and audit special summer seminars and research workshops that explore some of the most challenging questions still to be addressed by Holocaust scholarship. Activities span the Museum’s DC locations and the David and Fela Shapell Family Collections, Conservation, and Research Center in suburban Maryland.
