        Subject: Call for Applications: ADHO Communications Fellowship


The Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) seeks applicants
for its 2016-2017 Communications fellowship.

Working on a small team, the fellow will write news releases, blog posts,
and announcements about ADHO, its constituent organizations, and the
broader digital humanities community; monitor and update ADHO’s social
media presence; maintain its website; help to develop and implement ADHO’s
outreach strategy; and perform other communications-related
responsibilities. The Communications fellow should anticipate spending
approximately 3-4 hours per week on the position. The fellowship comes with
a small annual stipend of 600 Euros. It is well-suited for graduate
students who wish to develop deeper knowledge of digital humanities,
contribute to an important digital humanities professional organization,
and gain experience in social media and communications.
