Digital and Online Postdoctoral Fellow

Besides working on research and teaching (in this case in an online format) like the rest of our fellows, our digital-online fellow monitors the implementation of an exciting project under the Department’s responsibility. It involves the digitization of the historical archive of the City of Miami Beach. In addition, the fellow coordinates with the Department’s digital instructor to ensure the expansion and enhancement of the teaching of online courses and the use of digital materials in all our classes, following the best practices in the humanities.
