R E M I N D E R: 

Today, I would like to remind you of the expiring call for applications. Please be aware that there are just 5 days left until the current call for the HIIG Summer Fellowship 2015 will be closed. Thus, hurry up to send in your applications by 1 March via our application form at hiig.de/summer2015  http://hiig.de/summer2015 .


Our summer fellowship provides innovative thinkers a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and set off new initiatives in an inviting intellectual environment. In addition to that you will get in touch with other summer fellows during the common research period. The selected fellows are very welcome to collaborate in a growing international team and to participate in the research activities at our institute. We encourage you to actively shape your stay according to your research interests. We offer a number of opportunities to get involved with our research programme and discuss your research project with the HIIG research team, such as:

Writing a paper related to your research project, e.g. publishing a journal paper in our SSRN Internet & Society Series  http://www.hiig.de/en/research/ssrn-internet-society-series
Holding a presentation about a topic of your choice in our weekly HIIG Club
Organising a workshop related to your research topic
Engage in joint activities and projects with other fellows
And more – according to your interest


Fellows are expected to bring their own funding through their home institution or outside grants. Fellows must take care of their accommodation, insurance, childcare, and transportation arrangements. However, in specific cases we can provide a travel allowance of up to € 700,- and a visa subsidy of up to € 200,- on request.

Time frame

We offer fellowships ranging from 3 to 12 months starting from 1 June 2015 at the earliest. Fellowships must cover the period from 1 July to 31 August to guarantee the exchange among all of our fellows.

        Subject: Apply Now: Advanced Digital Humanities Institute at the Folger this June

"Early Modern Digital Agendas: Advanced Topics" seeks 15 DH scholars and practitioners to bring their own data sets to the Folger in Washington, DC, in the second half of June 2015.

Under the direction of Jonathan Hope, Professor of Literary Linguistics at the University of Strathclyde, visiting faculty and participants will conduct an advanced exploration of data creation and management followed by various forms of hands-on investigation, including text analytics, social network analysis, dimensionality reduction, and research process design. Attention will also be paid to the historical nature of "exemplarity" claims in humanistic argument.

This institute is supported by a generous grant from the NEH's Office of Digital Humanities to the Folger Institute. Further details, including the visiting faculty, curriculum, eligibility, and application materials and guidelines, may be found here:


The deadline is 2 March 2015.

Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions.
