The Center for Hellenic Studies (CHS) Summer Internship Program in Publications offers college students the opportunity to work at the CHS in Washington, D.C. on projects related to publications and content development from June 1-July 31, 2016. Interns will have access to the library resources and will have opportunities to engage with the scholarly community at the CHS.
Interns will work approximately 175 hours over the course of the summer and receive $12.00 per hour. The work schedule is relatively flexible and provides ample opportunity to see Washington, D.C. The CHS will provide housing on-campus.
This year, the publications internships will focus on the Open Greek and Latin Project, in particular, a self-standing subset of it called the Free First Thousand Years of Greek. The goal is to make freely available the corpus of the first thousand years of Ancient Greek as attested in manuscripts with a modern search engine, the ability to download authors and works, the capacity for including textual variants, and numerous other features.
The work involves a range of activities: scanning texts, verifying and correcting OCR’d texts, running a morphological parser on texts to test their integrity and correct errors, ensuring that the XML markup of texts is correct, uploading corrected texts to a GitHub repository, and so on.
There will also be occasional work in other online publication projects of the CHS, such as A Homer Commentary in Progress or Particles in Ancient Greek Discourse, which will include archiving publications, editing texts, and entering data into bibliographic databases.
