Introducing our Summer 2021 Interns

Jun 21 2021

Introducing our Summer 2021 Interns, a virtual community of digital humanities researchers.

Every quarter the Center for Textual and Spatial Analysis is animated by Stanford undergraduate research interns. These students contribute to faculty projects while acquiring new skills that are consolidated in workshops and activities designed for the internship program. During the pandemic, all of this work is being done remotely: interns are advancing digital humanities research and creating a unique community of researchers from their homes. You can read below about this cohort of interns and their work. Their efforts this Summer are being sustained by two graduate mentors, Merve Tekgürler, a PhD student in History, and Annie Lamar, a PhD student in Classics.

We’re grateful to the many campus partners who support our research and programs, including colleagues at Stanford University Libraries and the Stanford Humanities Center.  Our Undergraduate Research Internship program receives generous support from a VPUE Departmental Grant. Some projects and interns at CESTA are also supported by Cultivating Humanities and Social Sciences Grants and the Stanford-Tinker Faculty Research Fund.
