Call for applications for Digital Humanities Asia Postdoctoral Fellowship, Stanford University
February 17, 2017
The Digital Humanities Asia (DHAsia) program at Stanford University invites applications for a 12-month Postdoctoral position during the 2017-2018 academic year. This position is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Sawyer Seminar program, with further support provided by Stanford University. The successful applicant is expected to begin on or by October 1, 2017.
Stanford University is a globally recognized leader in the fields of Digital Humanities, GIS, text analysis, social network analysis, Text Technologies, and natural language processing. The Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), the Center for Interdisciplinary Digital Research (CIDR), the Literary Lab, and more attract scholars from around the world who are eager to learn from our experiences and implement our methods. Flagship projects, such as Mapping the Republic of Letters, the Çatalhöyük Living Archive, Kindred Britain, the ORBIS Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World have all begun to reshape not just the methods that we as Humanists bring to bear on our questions, but the very questions we ask.
At home within this rich DH ecology at Stanford, Digital Humanities Asia (DHAsia) seeks to advance a new era in Non-Western Digital Humanities, with a focus on East, South, Southeast, and Inner-Central Asia. We seek energetic and creative applicants who demonstrate innovative thinking and a proactive approach to the questions that digital humanities methods, approaches, tools, and theories raise in their academic disciplines.
