The American Antiquarian Society is delighted to welcome Molly O’Hagan Hardy as our new Digital Humanities Curator. Molly will join AAS in September as a 2013 American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Public Fellow, and will be working to promote digital humanities scholarship using the Society’s collections, increase access to the Society’s digitized collection materials, and manage projects in digital humanities at AAS.
We are pleased to partner with ACLS in this innovative fellowship initiative, which offers recent humanities Ph.D.s the opportunity to gain valuable, career-launching experience in areas such as arts management, communications, public administration, and digital media. This year’s 20 ACLS Public Fellows will take up two-year assignments at a diverse set of organizations in the government and non-profit sectors. A full list of the 2013 Public Fellows and their placements can be found here. The ACLS Public Fellows program is made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
