Irish Studies Würzburg


    We are delighted to be able to offer internships for students in cooperation with CELT: The Free Digital Humanities Resource for Irish History, Literature and Politics. CELT (Corpus of Electronic Texts) is the world’s largest online site for Irish Studies source material at University College Cork in Ireland. Students can now apply for a four week internship with CELT. The internships will usually take place in summer, between June and August. Under the guidance and supervision of CELT manager Beatrix Faerber, students will assist in enlarging the corpus of electronic texts available online and enhance their digital humanities skills. Please see the website for more information on CELT: https://celt.ucc.ie//


    Students will have to cover their own expenses for travel, accommodation, and cost of living. It is recommended to seek assistance from the Service Centre International Affairs at JMU to identify funding possibilities: https://www.uni-wuerzburg.de/international/startseite/


    Students at the Department of Modern Languages who are pursuing the “Zusatzzertifikat Digitale Kompetenz in den Geisteswissenschaften“ can complete the “Praxismodul“ within this scheme. They should ideally have already attended “Modul 1: Einführungsvorlesung“ before the start of the internship. Please see this website for more details: https://www.neuphil.uni-wuerzburg.de/anglistik/studium/zusatzzertifikat-digitale-kompetenz/


    Students who are pursuing a course of studies in English, and ideally also in Digital Humanities, can earn ECTS for the “Auslandspraktikum”. Some additional requirements apply.
