CDH Pune will sponsor one undergraduate or graduate student interested in applying for the HASTAC Scholars Program 2020-2022. The student must be studying at an Indian institution and interested in the digital humanities. For this application cycle, we especially welcome applications from students representing SC/ST, OBC, and other minoritized communities in India. The Center is committed to exploring issues of social justice, activism, human rights, and advocacy in the context of Digital Humanities in India. We’d like to particularly acknowledge and build on the work Ravinder Singh (DHARTI Executive Board) and Dr. Varsha Ayyar (TISS) have done on digital humanities and caste in the last several years. Students can either pitch a DH project that they will take up for the 2 year program or participate in one of CDH Pune’s on-going projects. Learn more about what other prior HASTAC Scholars have done for their projects:
Interested students should email Dr. Dhanashree Thorat (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following information by October 30:
- A bio introducing yourself (150 words)
- A short note on how you meet the Center’s stated focus listed above and overall mission (150 words)
- A project description for what you might do as a HASTAC Scholar (200 words)
After applications are internally reviewed, selected students will be invited to submit their application to the HASTAC Scholars Program under CDH Pune sponsorship. The Center will ensure appropriate mentorship and a small stipend ($300, disbursed in two payments) if students are selected by program. We welcome applications from students who are new to the digital humanities but demonstrate an interest in the field.
