        Subject: Funded PhD opportunity in Critical DH at TCD Dublin

The Centre for Digital Humanities at Trinity College Dublin is pleased to
announce the availability of one funded PhD position to deliver a thesis project
entitled “Language, Culture and the Empowerment Gap of Artificial Intelligence”.
The 4-year project, supervised by Dr Jennifer Edmond, has been generously
supported by the Trinity College Dublin Provost’s PhD Awards fund, which cover
full fees (EU or non-EU rates) as well as a stipend of €16,650.

The project will use a multi-layered, humanities-based, mixed methods approach
to analyse the intersection between AI-based systems and democratic processes.
It will focus on the discourses and perceptions shaping these interactions,
their origins and the practices they imply, so as to propose innovative
approaches to addressing the challenges AI presents to democracy.

More information is available at:

Interested candidates should send a copy of their CV/resume and a statement on
why they would like to undertake this PhD project by 26th April 2021 to Dr
Edmond directly ( They should include in a cover letter the
reasons for their interest, information on their relevant experience of
research, and of digital humanities and/or science and technology studies as
related to the project.  Promising candidates will be provided with a longer
description of the proposed project and be invited to interview.
