Join a team of researchers, technicians, and scholars interested and invested in the recovery of the work of women writers using digital methods. This network includes people with a variety of skills and experiences who help those working on new and growing digital projects engage in the recovery of women’s writing.
We are seeking two graduate fellows who will dedicate 80 hours over the course of a year (approximately six hours per week) to producing, refining, and editing the Recovery Hub’s Resource Library. The role includes:
- Collecting, curating, and developing teaching materials related to scholarly editing and the Recovery Hub’s showcased projects
- Developing training modules, annotated bibliographies, and demonstration videos
- Developing social media content
- Writing a White Paper about your experience
- Participating in periodic meetings with Recovery Hub staff
Graduate fellows will undergo training in digital recovery methods and will learn more about digital recovery as they produce and refine materials for the resource library. Fellows are awarded a stipend of $4,000 (split into four payments over the year), and their work will have full attribution on the Recovery Hub website.
The Hub is looking for graduate students with experience and/or interest in American women’s writing, the digital humanities, and inclusive pedagogies. Applicants should have some teaching experience or familiarity with digital tools and methods (editing, metadata, GIS, distant reading, etc.). Committed to cultivating a community of diverse scholars as well as inclusive project content, the Hub’s Advisory Board aims for at least 50% of its affiliated projects to recover Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and LGBTQIA+ stories, texts, experiences, and voices. The work of the graduate fellows should be consistent with the principles outlined in the Recovery Hub Mission Statement.
