The all volunteer MarineLives project has opportunities for undergraduate students, and for graduate students at masters and doctoral level, to work on different aspects of our 2014-2015 research programme. If you are interested in using existing skills, and in developing new skills, in digital history, and more broadly in digital humanities, then we may have something for you.
We are currently recruiting volunteers for two collaborative transcription programs we will be running later this year. These programmes are being run in collaboration with Bath Spa University. Please contact us for more information.
Twelve week collaborative transcription programme, one and a half to two hours per week
- Programme A: June, July and August 2014
- Programme B: October and November 2014, January 2015
We are looking to recruit eight volunteer team facilitators and thirty-two volunteer team associates per programme. Past team members have come from both North America and Europe, and have spanned many different academic disciplines. No prior palaeographical experience is required. You bring your commitment and we will provide the training - in early modern palaeography, in multi-locational digital collaboration, and more broadly in project management.
Our approach to collaboration is summarised in a recent posting to the HASTAC community: MarineLives approach to collaboration
