John & Pat Hume PhD fellowships in Digital Humanities,
An Foras Feasa,
National University of Ireland Maynooth.
An Foras Feasa, the humanities institute of the National University of Ireland Maynooth, is delighted to announce funding for two John & Pat Hume PhD fellowships in the area of digital humanities for PhD candidates beginning the 2014-15 academic year.
Funding is for a four-year PhD, consisting of a first year of taught modules, followed by three years of research. Funding covers EU fees and a €5000 yearly stipend. Additional funding of up to €3000 may also be available in the form of tutorials, lectures, or by working on an existing DH research project.
PhDs may register in An Foras Feasa for the PhD. Alternatively, students may decide on joint supervision between An Foras Feasa and a member of staff in a humanities department. Proposals in the area of text encoding are very much welcome.
Candidates will join a supportive and vibrant DH community. Current DH projects include The Digital Repository of Ireland, The DixIT ITN, Letters of 1916, and Contested Memories: The Battle of Mount Street Bridge.
