With more and more kinds of historical documents becoming available online, there is a need for students to learn the skills, methods, and philosophies of digital history and digital humanities research. This research fellowship provides for one student to work with faculty in the department of history on digital history, whether that means learning to build apps, digitizing resources, writing history on the web, data mining ‘big data’, and reflecting on what this process does to our sense of what history is about. In years to come we would grow the fund to enable up to three students to hold the fellowship concurrently.
