I am seeking to recruit 2-4 new interns to help me develop several digital humanities research projects. The internships are unpaid, but you can receive credit for it by enrolling in INTD 4995, and gain valuable 21st century skills in the process.

The work will involve developing and tagging files with metadata, working on link structures, describing born-digital materials, learning how to use open-source software like WordPress, Drupal, and Omeka to build collections, knowledge bases, and resources, preparing data sets for visualizations using Gephi, and other related Digital Humanities work.

After completing the course, students should be able to:

  1. use software like WordPress, Drupal, Omeka, and Gephi
  2. encode files according to standardized metadata schema
  3. analyze the structure of collections and knowledge bases
  4. become conversant in the discourse of Digital Humanities
  5. develop resources  to contribute to the research projects

Students enrolled in 3 credits will need to dedicate 9 hours per week to the project, but you’ll be able to do the work wherever you like, as long as you have a computer and Internet access. We will have weekly 60 minute-long  team meetings to report on progress and assign tasks. You can take this course twice for up to 6 credits during your studies at UPRM. For more information, such as the activities being done this semester, visit my internship website.

If you’re interested, contact me (leonardo.flores@upr.edu) so I can interview you and/or write a letter of invitation.
