The Digital Humanities Intern will assist the American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) with developing and publishing digital content to support the program’s outreach and communication goals. ABPP promotes the preservation of historic battlefields associated with wars on American soil through technical and financial assistance to state, tribal, and local governments, as well as academic or nonprofit partners. The program provides grants for land acquisition, preservation planning, interpretation, and restoration of American sites of armed conflict beyond the borders of federally protected land.

The Digital Humanities Intern will author materials for the NPS ABPP website, the NPS Battlefield subject site, and/or social media accounts to help the program reach new audiences and collaborate with current or potential preservation partners and NPS parks. The intern will execute ongoing analysis of ABPP’s digital content for relevance and equity, to ensure that a multiplicity of these battlefield’s narratives are told in an engaging manner. Through their work, they will also learn about the federal grant process and will be exposed to other NPS cultural resource programs as well as state and local partners.
