Digital Humanities Associates


Carleton DHAsThe Digital Humanities Associates (DHAs) are a group of undergraduate students chosen in a competitive selection process to work as interns on digital humanities projects and courses throughout the academic year. The program is based in the Gould Library, funded jointly by the Humanities Center, Library, and ITS, and overseen by Reference & Instructional Librarian for Digital Scholarship Sarah Calhoun and Assistant Director of the Humanities Center for Digital Humanities Austin Mason.

DHAs engage in a wide array of projects, collaborating closely with faculty who conduct arts and humanities research and who teach using digital methods and tools.  

  • In some cases, they function as Research Assistants for digital humanities projects, consulting on every stage of the process from initial design to data entry, development and final deployment.  
  • The DHAs also serve as embedded Teaching Assistants in humanities courses, offering hands-on assistance for digital class projects and holding "tech help" evening office hours when students are up working but most faculty have left campus for the night.

Digital Humanities Associates are responsible, engaged students who are excited about collaborative research, technological experimentation, and helping the campus explore the possibilities that exist for digital humanities research and teaching. 

Meet the DHAs on our People page and read about what they've been up to on the Carleton Digital Humanities Blog!
