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Traveling to southern communities to collect historical documents and conduct research.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