The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland is seeking an experienced project manager who will provide coordination and management for research projects and initiatives in the digital humanities.
The Project Manager will work with senior MITH staff to conceptualize, implement, and manage digital humanities research work in a collaborative, team-driven environment. The successful candidate will have experience developing and administering collaborative research projects and events; strong oral and written communications skills; experience writing for, and working with, academic and public audiences; and an interest in digital research methods and tools.
In my last post, “Definitions that Matter (Of Digital Humanities),” I did some analysis of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) fellowships offered through its Office of Digital Humanities (ODH), in which I tried to show that these grants have largely focused on what I’ve been calling “narrow” Digital Humanities. In the comments to that piece, Brett Bobley, Director of ODH, pointed me and other readers toward a recentannouncement that explicitly addresses this point, and encourages applications from what many of us have been calling “big tent” DH. In particular, that announcement notes the addition of a new rubric for projects funded by ODH Start-Up Grants:
The Roy Rosenzweig Prize for Innovation in Digital Historyis sponsored jointly by the AHA and the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University. It was developed by friends and colleagues of Roy Rosenzweig (1950–2007), the Mark and Barbara Fried Professor of History and New Media at George Mason University, to honor his life and work as a pioneer in the field of digital history.
This Prize will be awarded annually to honor and support work on an innovative and freely available new media project, and in particular for work that reflects thoughtful, critical, and rigorous engagement with technology and the practice of history.
Deadline is May 15.
