The NULab and DSG have received funding from an NEH award to help digital humanities projects at Northeastern recover momentum lost during the coronavirus pandemic. This funding will support DH projects in funding undergraduate and MA student positions, starting as early as January 2022 and running through September 2022. 

We are inviting proposals from Northeastern faculty, who are leading digital humanities projects that could make good use of one or more student positions this year. The work should be substantive and should involve the student meaningfully in your project’s research: for instance, to accomplish things like:

  • Transcribing or digitizing new source materials
  • Developing exhibits, pedagogical materials, outreach materials
  • Preparing documentation and training materials
  • Contributing to developing and/or teaching a course with you using your project
  • Developing analyses, visualizations, new forms of expression for your project’s data
  • Developing or expanding a project web site

This funding can only be used for student wages and does not cover travel or event costs. Depending on how many proposals we receive, we’ll do our best to distribute the available positions. In your proposal, feel free to think big, but it will also be helpful to indicate what would be a minimum of effort you’d need. If you already have a student working with you, this funding can be used to support that student (and in some situations, we may be able to pay for work done prior to January).

The deadline for applications is November 15, 2021. One-page proposals should be submitted by completing this form:

Proposals should include:

  • Brief description of the project
  • Details of the work the student(s) would do
  • How many hours/week, what level of student, and for how long and when, roughly. For instance, an MA student for 10 hrs/week for May-August 2022.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, and best of luck with your research this year!
