We are searching for a summer fellow with a strong background in art history or museum studies who is currently enrolled in or has completed a digital humanities degree (or a degree in a related field) and who also possesses the related technology skills applicable to our project. A stipend will be offered for five weeks of work. In the Winter 2019 issue, Dr. Melanie Gifford, research conservator at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., will publish “The Fall of the Phaeton in the Evolution of Peter Paul Rubens” (working title). The summer fellow will work with Dr. Gifford to execute the enhancements explained in her project proposal. A technical description with the fellow as author will accompany the publication. Please share the application (attached below as a .pdf) with current and former students and colleagues who can direct this to person(s) with these skills. As well, please keep in mind that we seek to develop a longer relationship with a digital humanities-skilled professional as we are applying for Kress Foundation and NEH Digital Humanities Advancement grants this spring and summer.
Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art (jhna.org) is the open-access electronic journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art. Dedicated to the study of Netherlandish, German, and Franco-Flemish art and architecture (c.1350-1750), the journal publishes issues of peer-reviewed articles every winter and summer. In the fall of 2017 we re-launched our website and have set out to publish articles that apply new technologies to enhance digital publishing beyond putting a print journal online. In certain forthcoming issues, we seek to publish fully-supported digital humanities projects that incorporate academic articles.
The timeline for this project: summer 2018, beginning as early as June 4.
Applications are due April 16, 2018.
Finalist interviews April 23-27.
Only U.S. citizens should apply. Stipend provided by HNA: $2,500 at $500 per week for 5 weeks [subject to change if grants become available]. For submissions and questions, please email: Heidi Eyestone, Managing Editor, JHNA (firstname.lastname@example.org)
