Graduate Assistantships in Digital Humanities

The Department of Digital Media and Design (DMD) at the University of Connecticut is seeking applications for two funded studentships of possible interest to the digital humanities community. Both studentships come with full tuition, benefits, and a paid assistantship. To apply, please visit http://grad.uconn.edu/ and indicate your interest in either the DMD M.A. or M.F.A. program. Please contact Tom Scheinfeldt (tom.scheinfeldt@uconn.edu) and Clarissa Ceglio (clarissa.ceglio@uconn.edu) directly for more information. We will begin reviewing candidates on March 15th.

The Department of Digital Media and Design is pleased to announce a funded two-year M.F.A. studentship in Digital Media & Design (concentration open). The studentship will provide full tuition, health benefits, and a half-time graduate research assistantship with Greenhouse Studios / Scholarly Communications Design at UConn. Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Greenhouse Studios is dedicated to solving the problems and exploring the opportunities of scholarship in the “digital age.” A transdisciplinary collective, Greenhouse Studios reframes the practices, pathways and products of scholarly communications through inquiry-driven, collaboration-first approaches to the creation and expression of knowledge. Greenhouse Studios Graduate Assistants provide artistic, design, creative expression, and technical implementation assistance to Greenhouse Studios projects. Working in a dynamic, team environment alongside faculty, library, editor, and student colleagues, graduate assistants contribute to the production of collaborative multimedia research objects. Other responsibilities include supporting day-to-day operations of the Greenhouse Studios, its directors, and its collaborative workspace. This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring artist or scholar to work in close collaboration with experts from a range of fields and to experiment with new modes of expression and communication.

The Department of Digital Media and Design is pleased to announce a funded, one-year M.A. studentship in Digital Media & Design (concentration open). The studentship will provide full tuition, health benefits, and a half-time graduate teaching assistantship in digital culture to a qualified student. This is an exciting opportunity for a recent humanities B.A. to acquire practical skills in digital media and design or for a practicing librarian or public historian to get started in digital humanities.
