Description

The University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press, in partnership with the College of Arts and Sciences, invites applications for a Coordinator of Special Collections and Digital Humanities. We seek a scholar in the humanities who will take a lead role in partnering with Library, Museums and Press staff, University faculty and community partners to foster the use of Library and Museum collections for digital humanities projects, both in and beyond the classroom.  The successful candidate will possess an educational background suited to work at the intersection of the classroom, the museum and/or archive, and the digital realm. Relevant training in programming, computer graphics, computational linguistics, or other fields relevant to digital humanities research is desirable but not required.

This is a dual reporting line assigned to the Special Collections in the University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press and an academic department in the College of Arts and Sciences, where the incumbent will hold a continuing appointment as an affiliated faculty member.  The successful candidate will teach the equivalent of one class per semester that engages students with UD’s special collections materials and showcases those materials.

The successful candidate will articulate strategic approaches to foster digital humanities at the University and demonstrate knowledge of how to use UD Library’s Special Collections holdings, particularly African American sources, in the classroom.
