Fellowship in Digital Community History – please forward to interested students and colleagues

Brown University’s Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) and the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage (JNBC) are seeking individuals to apply for a fellowship to direct the digital aspects of the Fox Point Community History Project. The digital fellow will work with faculty and staff in both the CDS and JNBC as well as other Brown faculty and students undertaking related work to develop an online public history resource that incorporates oral history, primary documents (photographs, letters, clippings), geospatial data, documentary film, statistical data and other materials. This multidimensional, interactive framework will provide avenues for both scholarly and public engagement. This fellowship is contingent upon funding from the NEH Fellowships at Digital Humanities Centers program (http://www.neh.gov/grants/guidelines/fdhc.html

Interested individuals should provide a 2 page curriculum vitae as well as a statement of interest that provides an overview of relevant experience by September 5.
