Students outside the field of history are encouraged to apply. Digital Humanities Associate Fellows for the 2020 year are required to be in residence at the Museum for nine months, arriving in September and departing at the end of May, 2021. The Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies and the William Levine Family Institute of Holocaust Education will provide a stipend of $3,000/month.

THE DIGITAL HUMANITIES ASSOCIATE FELLOWSHIP (DHAF) recognizes the increasing importance and use of Digital Humanities (DH) in Holocaust research and teaching and supports its practices, possibilities, and applications for the field and the Museum. This (relatively) young academic specialty seeks to apply the wealth of new digital techniques and technologies to the problems of humanities research and education. With the DHAF program, the Museum seeks to increase capacity for expanding the application of digital techniques across the institution and the field of Holocaust and Genocide studies. While at the Museum, the Digital Humanities Associate Fellows will develop and conduct independent research projects under the supervision of a Museum mentor, interact with staff and visiting scholars in residence, and audit special summer seminars and research workshops that explore some of the most challenging questions still to be addressed by Holocaust scholarship. Activities span the Museum’s DC locations and the David and Fela Shapell Family Collections, Conservation, and Research Center in suburban Maryland.
