The WHC is developing an Undergraduate Internship program with a focus on training in digital history. The program started in the Fall of 2017 with our first student intern, with hopes of reaching a capacity of 10-15 students per academic year. Ryan Horne, Digital History Postdoctoral Fellow at the WHC, is helping launch the program and will lead the efforts in digital training.
This initiative will permit students to practice digital history, complete digital publications, and perform independent research. As it grows and persists, the initiative will gradually produce a world historical map of engaging projects. A focus on digital history dovetails with initiatives in data science, digital humanities, and related areas campus wide and at the World History Center.
We've just announced our newest internship that will be offered in the Spring of 2018.
