PLEASE HELP US GET THE WORD OUT BY LINKING AND TRACKBACKING
The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland, College Park is pleased to be able to offer an immediate residential fellowship available to any one faculty member or ABD doctoral candidate at an institution closed by Hurricane Katrina.
Housed in the campus’s primary research library, MITH is a community of scholars devoted to the application of new media and digital technologies to humanities scholarship and teaching. Projects have typically taken the form of electronic editions, scholarly databases, or high-end teaching materials. See examples here:
While colleges and universities seem to be moving very fast to accommodate displaced undergraduates, the careers of graduate students and faculty also have to be protected and tended to. We are therefore able to offer a scholar his or her personal workspace, the use of our extensive hardware and software resources, easy access to the university’s library collections (and a base from which to access the unparalleled academic and cultural institutions of the DC area besides), and expert-level consulting about digital scholarship.
While we regret we are unable to offer a stipend, funding is available for temporary relocation and some initial start-up expenses.
To apply, please send a letter of inquiry describing the project to be undertaken (either new or continuing research), a CV, and contact information for three references. Application materials may be sent electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 301-314-7111 or by post to Neil Fraistat, Acting Director, MITH, McKeldin Library, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742. Consideration of applications to begin immediately. Applications from women and minorities and graduate students and faculty at Historically Black Colleges and Universities is encouraged.
