Through the generous support of the National Institute for Newman Studies, the History Department is happy to offer a $2,000 paid archival internship. The Newman Institute, located in Oakland, facilitates scholarly learning and dialogue on the enduring relevance of John Henry Cardinal Newman’s life, work, and influence. The institute includes physical and digital libraries, a scholarly journal, and a residential research center.
Interns will assist in organizing, processing, and maintaining the Institute’s archives relating to the life of John Henry Cardinal Newman, making them available to researchers investigating a wide range of topics. Interns will also assist Newman Institute staff in presenting materials to the general public through exhibits, presentations, and publications.
This prestigious internship opportunity is available to any public history student who has completed PHST 521: Introduction to Archives before the start date of the internship in January 2018. It will fulfill the requirements of the Archival Internship course (PHST 658).
This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the world of scholarly archives management, to work in one of Pittsburgh’s premier cultural institutions, and to receive financial support while completing graduate coursework.
Students selected for this internship must agree to attend the 2019 Fall NINS Symposium on 10/24 and 10/25 in Oakland. More information including times and agendas can be found here: https://www.newmanstudies.org/news-and-events/2019-fall-conference
