Please circulate this announcement widely:

The Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) seeks candidates for our summer 2019 internships in the departments of History and Heritage & Interpretation. These are paid positions, ideally for upper-level undergraduates with experience in public history, museums, digital humanities, southern studies, Jewish studies, and/or collections management. A background in Jewish studies is helpful, but by no means required.

Depending on interns’ skills and interests, projects include:

  • Historical research, writing, and editing.

  • Processing and cataloging archival materials.

  • Transcribing and indexing oral history interviews.

  • Developing content for and producing digital history projects.

  • Traveling to southern communities to collect historical documents and conduct research.

Interns will reside in Jackson, Mississippi, and receive a stipend. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, with priority given to applications received by Monday, February 11th, 2019.
