        Subject: Practitioner in Residence Opportunity

Dear colleagues,

The Digital Humanities Research Hub at the School of Advanced Study,
University of London as an opportunity for a practitioner interested in
collaborating with researchers and technical specialists working at the
intersection of digital technology and humanistic inquiry. We are
particularly keen to host a practitioner with interests in areas such as
3D imaging, modelling and printing; cultural heritage, including
born-digital material; data visualisation; virtual and/or augmented
reality; or the environmental impacts of digital technology.

We would be particularly excited to see applications from those working
in cultural heritage or the creative industries. Applications with an
element of community or public engagement are particularly welcome, as
are ones that might make use of the Senate House MakerSpace, which
contains technology for 3D modelling, 3D printing, video editing,
scanning and digitisation, and computer programming. We are looking to
encourage innovative, imaginative, and boundary-crossing work which
further develops digital humanities practice, broadly understood.

The practitioner will be in residence with the Hub from May to July 2023
and receive a stipend of £1000 per month.

More details on the application:
