The Faculty of Arts seeks to make an award ($6,200) to an Arts
graduate student with strong interests and expertise in Digital
Humanities. The award holder will develop an online annotated DH
bibliography. The bibliographic work will provide the foundation
for a series of grant proposals and will serve the work of a DH
reading group at the Institute for the Public Life of Arts and
Ideas (IPLAI). It is expected that the award holder will also take
part with faculty members in ongoing work on DH.
In addition to having expertise in DH, the award holder will be able to manage and organize material from different disciplines. The successful candidate will be self-motivated and able to work independently to deadlines. Experience in information management will be an asset.
The start date of the award is 15 June 2011. The award holder is expected to be resident in Montreal for the greater part of summer 2011 in order to coordinate work with Dr. Matthew Milner and the McGill Digital Humanities Steering Committee.
By 25 May [Deadline Extension - May 30, 2011], applicants should forward a CV and a statement outlining their interests and expertise in Digital Humanities to
Dr. Matthew Milner
