Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Residencies to USA students for research or teaching projects that make use of digital technology. All academic disciplines are eligible focus areas, including political science, computer science, history, literature, Jewish studies, psychology, sociology, and geography. Students outside the field of history are encouraged to apply. Residents are required to be in residence at the Museum in Maryland for nine months.

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.
