At the beginning of February, PoLAR launched its Digital Editorial Fellows (def) Program for graduate students interested in enhancing their knowledge and experience in the areas of academic publishing and digital studies. The program is part of an effort to expand PoLAR‘s virtual presence and to foster dialogue among members, while continuing APLA’s tradition of graduate student mentorship in the field. Working with Online Content Editor, Kate Henne, Fellows receive specialized readings about digital publishing and anthropology, develop themes for virtual issues, initiate new spillover conversations, and collaboratively create initiatives for online content.
Our inaugural cohort is made up of the following students:
– Siva Arumugam (Columbia University)
– Natasha Pushkarna (University of California, Irvine)
– Eduardo Ramirez (Australian National University)
The new PoLAR interface will be online in May, so keep an eye out for further updates!
