One of our primary missions is to support the work of emerging scholars and digital humanities practitioners. Meet some of our past and present graduate fellows!
Digital Humanities Fellows
Scholars’ Lab Graduate Fellows in Digital Humanities actively employ technology in their research and create or analyze digital content with input and advice from SLab faculty and staff. Applicants must be ABD in the humanities, social sciences or the arts at the University of Virginia.
This highly competitive program is supported by the Jeffrey C. Walker Library Fund for Technology in the Humanities, the Matthew & Nancy Walker Library Fund, and a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Praxis Program Fellowships
The Praxis Program is a radical re-imagining of the annual teaching and training we offer in the Scholars’ Lab. Its fellowships support a team of six University of Virginia MA and PhD students from a variety of disciplines, who work collaboratively on a shared digital humanities project. Under the guidance of Scholars’ Lab faculty and staff, Praxis fellows conceive, develop, publish, and promote a digital project over the course of an academic year. Our first two cohorts are designing and building Prism, a digital tool for crowd-sourced humanities interpretation, visualization, and textual analysis.
The Praxis Program is 2011-2013 pilot project, generously supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to UVa Library’s Scholarly Communication Institute.
Applications are now being accepted: deadline is April 15! Get details about the application process for the Praxis Program and about the optional information session on April 8 at 4pm.
