DH Research Interns
Every year, the Yale Digital Humanities Lab awards internships to undergraduate and graduate students to collaborate with our team on digital humanities initiatives at and beyond Yale. These internships are funded through partnerships with other Yale units, affiliated universities, and cultural heritage institutions to provide students with digital humanities mentorship and project-based training.
Micah Siegel is a Ph.D. student in the English department, where she studies the nineteenth- and twentieth-century novel. Her dissertation research examines how people thought about plot in the turn-of-the-century literary marketplace, drawing on materials like authors’ manuals, self-proclaimed “novels without plots,” and Golden Age detective fiction.
This fall, Micah will be interning with the Digital Humanities Lab as a GSAS Professional Experience (GPE) Outreach Strategy Fellow. She also will be serving as a DH Teaching Fellow for ENGL 114 30: “Mysteries, Puzzles, and Clues,” and looks forward to introducing her students to digital humanities tools and methodologies. The GPE Fellowship is funded by the Yale Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and Digital Humanities Lab.
Joyce Wu is a Yale College student majoring in Computing and the Arts.
This fall, Joyce is contributing to PixPlot, open source software the Digital Humanities Lab is developing for finding patterns in large-scale visual collections. The DH Research Internship is funded through the Yale-Smithsonian Partnership, with the intership held jointly by the Yale Digital Humanities Lab and the Smithsonian Data Science Lab.
