The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with Greenhouse Studios | Scholarly Communications Design at UConn (greenhousestudios.uconn.edu), has awarded Isabell Sluka the 2022-24 Graduate Student Assistantship in Digital Humanities.
This assistantship program is intended for individuals committed to the development of the field and to supporting the inclusion of minoritized populations, including people of color, Indigenous peoples, LGBTQI+ persons, disabled people, Immigrants/Refugees, and/or other underrepresented groups. The assistantship program supports CLAS and Greenhouse Studios’ commitments to diversity and inclusion and is intended to enhance the academic and professional experience of students by providing two years of hands-on experience in digital humanities research and methods with GreenhouseStudios in lieu of regular teaching assistant duties. Students currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program within a CLAS department and in their 4th year or earlier are eligible to apply.
Ms. Sluka’s dissertation is entitled “From a Postmigrant Society to Radical Diversity:(Re)Negotiating Germanness in the Digital Realm” and analyzes the digital public sphere from a number of media channels and platforms, including youtube and twitter.
Congratulations from all of us!!!
