U.S History Scene Internship

U.S. History Scene is now accepting undergraduate and graduate applications for its Spring 2014 Internship Program. U.S. History Scene is a multimedia history education project founded by Harvard historians dedicated to providing history teachers and students with free access to premier digital resources, scholarship, and archives (without the dust)! Using U.S. History Scene, teachers can incorporate into their curriculum cutting-edge research from top-tier universities that is relevant and pluralistic in scope.

The Journalism and New Media Writing Intern will be responsible for writing a small article series of their own design in conjunction with the editorial board. Topics of interest could include reporting and opinion pieces on higher education, technology and education, history and politics, issues of gender and race in education, history, and sports, reviews of exhibits or other cultural installations, interviews with major figures about history or education, American culture, education advocacy, and more.

All interns will work one-on-one with our Editorial Board to gain experience in primary source research, editing, and publishing. Internships are unpaid, but we will assist interns in applying for stipends or university credit. Internships can be performed via telecommute from your home university.

To apply: Interested undergraduates and graduate students should submit a resume/ CV, unofficial transcript, and a writing sample to Executive Editor Jennifer Ostwinkle atEditors@USHistoryScene.com by December 13, 2013. Applicants are asked to submit a list of five history articles they would be interested in working on; these topics are not binding, but help us understand applicants’ research interests. Applicants will be notified of their application decision on or around January 3, 2014.
