Affiliated Faculty-UROP Projects in Digital Humanities

*Not currently accepting applications*

Do you have a UROP project that would benefit from technical guidance? Would you like your UROPs to be able to connect with others working on faculty research in the humanities, arts, and social sciences across SHASS and MIT?

As home of one of the largest UROP cohorts in SHASS, the MIT Programs in Digital Humanities are pleased to announce a new program of support and community for faculty and UROPs doing DH work outside of the digital humanities lab.

Affiliated Faculty will be able to consult with DH staff about technical questions and project management; UROP recruitment, advising, and retention; and establishing long-term sustainability of technical projects.

UROPs working with Affiliated Faculty will be invited to join the DH UROP community through regular open “hack hours” and office hours and to present their work at an end-of-semester research showcase.

This program is open to all SHASS researchers of any rank, including graduate students. It will run for two terms this year: Spring 2021 (January 1-May 31) and Summer 2021 (May 1-August 31).

Please contact if you would like to set up a time to discuss a potential project. No prior coding or DH experience is necessary.

We are currently accepting applications for Affiliated Projects for Spring 2021 (January 1-May 31) and Summer 2021 (May 1-August 31).

To apply, please send a short (approx. 250 word) description of your project, including the number of UROPs you plan to employ, to by December 15, 2020.
