We’ve offered #DH undergrad and grad internships at Newbook Digital Texts since 2011 and have collaborated with around 200 @uw students during that time. newbookdigitaltexts.org #dayofdh2020 @nelcuw @ds_uw @SimpsonCenter @SvobodaDiaries @ebadiary @UWArtSci @uwcse @UW_iSchool
I collaborate with Prof. Walter Andrews and Dr. Mary Childs, amongst others. Our projects range from #Ottoman and #Georgian poetry to C19 travel journals from #Iraq and #Egypt.  
Our work is #opensource, and interns work on all aspects of the projects, including...
#Transcribing unpublished #primarysource material such as these diaries from C19 #Iraq @SvobodaDiaries @nelcuw
and handwritten letters written by the wife of the Director of the Met Museum's #egyptology #archaeology digs in the early C20, along with diaries and letters by an #artist in the #valleyofthekings in #Egypt
Students also work on #marketing, #webdesign, #dataviz, #maps and write #narratives. They have presented the results of their work at conferences in the US including annual talks and posters @uw Undergraduate Research Symposium.
We manage our project workflows using @basecamp, @github and @SlackHQ #Egyptology
Here's Walter with his Undergraduate Research #Mentor of the Year Award in 2018. I'm incredibly fortunate to have him as my own mentor and friend.
I’ll highlight some of the individual projects we’re working on in the next series of tweets! #dayofdh2020 @SvobodaDiaries @ebadiary @newbook_project @nelcuw @UWArtSci @ds_uw
