As part of the Sophomore Journeys Grant, eight sophomores have been selected for Digital Scholarship Fellowships. The program is designed to create opportunities for sophomores where digital technologies, methods, and culture are subject to critical inquiry in the liberal arts. 

LIT's Digital Scholarship Group will be working with fellows Shiru Kimani, Anuva Anannya, Nina Haynie, Fernanda Leon Canseco, Ntsieng Botsane, Aida Gueye, Abigail Yosef, and Ryan Devanny.

“The program is designed to enable sophomores to investigate and gain proficiency with a variety of digital platforms, while also critically reflecting on the related impacts on our culture and society.”  

During the Fall and Spring semesters, students are engaged in a series of workshops, led by Judith DeGroat, Avery Olearczyk, Corey McGrath, and Eric Williams-Bergen.  The workshops and related tasks are designed to progressively increase the students' skills in the use of digital technologies for scholarly research and to acquaint them with the debates about the role and challenges of technology in our society.  

Mary Jane Smith, Sophomore Journeys Coordinator and Associate Professor of History notes, "The Sophomore Journeys Digital Fellows Scholarship offers students mentored, hands-on, experiential learning that they will be able to transfer to their classroom assignments, SYE mentored research projects, and/or internships, fellowships, and post-graduation employment.  After working one-on-one with LIT digital learning experts, the Digital Fellows will employ their newly learned expertise in digital technology platforms to advise faculty and/or students working on digital scholarship projects while continuing to enhance their own digital technologies research skills."
