CHS Summer Internship in Digital Humanities
The Center for Hellenic Studies is looking for interns to work for eight weeks on the Free First Thousand Years of Greek Project, a self-standing subset of the Open Greek and Latin Project in Washington D.C. Find out more information here. Apply now!
Application Deadline: February 14, 2018
Internship Dates: June 1-July 27, 2018
The goal of the Free First Thousand Years of Greek Project is to make freely available the corpus of the first thousand years of Ancient Greek as attested in manuscripts. The project aims to incorporate a modern search engine, the ability to download works, the capacity for including textual variants, and numerous other features.
Interns will work primarily with XML files, editing them to meet the project’s standards, and uploading the corrections to a GitHub repository. Additional tasks will include correcting OCRed texts, as well as contributing to other digital humanities projects as they arise.
Undergraduate students majoring in any field may apply. One semester of ancient Greek is required; intermediate knowledge of ancient Greek is strongly preferred. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 is required. No prior professional experience is necessary for this internship. Interns will be trained in all necessary technologies. Applicants must demonstrate the internship’s relevance to their studies and future career plans.
The CHS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status in any of its activities or operations.
