NCSE, the Nineteenth-Century Serials Edition (http://www.ncse.ac.uk/index.html) is a free, online scholarly edition of six nineteenth-century periodicals and newspapers. It is a collaboration between Birkbeck College (School of Art’s English) and King’s College London (King’s Digital Lab and the English Department, both at the Faculty of Arts). It was funded from January 2005 to December 2007 by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. It is intended to be of use for anybody with an interest in nineteenth-century literature, history or culture, as well as those interested in the history of the press, or print culture more broadly. It combines easy to use browse functions with advanced searching of the content and the metadata.

The two successful candidates will join an established community of practice. The School of Arts has a pioneering role in digital editing and nineteenth-century studies as the home of the Open Library of the Humanities and 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Nineteenth-Century. This internship experience is an invaluable opportunity to engage closely with the ncse platform, currently being updated.

Successful candidates will update the website’s bibliography and carry out research into potential pedagogic uses the of the website and how these might enhance knowledge of nineteenth-century culture of the press.  As a result of this work, they will develop their skills in Digital Humanities, database management, periodical nineteenth-century culture, and copy-editing.
