The AAA is collaborating with the Center for Folklife and Heritage during the Smithsonian’s Folklife Festival June 29 – July 4; July 6 -9 2017. The AAA will be hosting three interactive workshops on the diverse experiences of migration and displacement.
These workshop events are part of the AAA’s Public Education Initiative on Human Migration.
The AAA would like to recruit graduate and undergraduate students to serve as workshop facilitators, workshop assistant, and social media interns. I believe this will be an excellent opportunity for students to use their anthropological knowledge outside the classroom and gain experience working within a large public setting. This internship is best suited for students in anthropology and sociology; however, we encourage students who are studying ethnomusicology, cultural studies, language studies, and other related disciplines to apply.
Interns will work three hours a day on a rotating shift. Interns are expected to work through the ten days of the Festival during the last week of June and the first week of July, including weekends and the July Fourth holiday. The interns should be comfortable working outdoors in high heat and humidity, in a fast-paced environment among large crowds of people. The festival hours are 11 am to 5 pm. Interns will receive a modest stipend for participating in this event.
Please circulate this message among your faculty, students, and anthropology clubs. Students interested in applying for this internship should send an electronic copy of their resume, unofficial copy of transcripts, and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Morris A. Soper Papers – Archival Processing Internship
Spring Semester 2017
The Maryland Historical Society is seeking an intern to assist in the folder-level processing of the papers of Judge Morris A. Soper (1873-1963). Spanning more than a half century at the state and federal level, Soper’s judicial service coincided with an era that saw great changes in American society. Soper wrote many landmark interstate commerce decisions and most notably was involved with several civil rights cases that preceded the landmark Brown vs the Board of Education in 1954. This 300 box collection of correspondence, case files, and personal material offers a unique look into the work of Maryland’s “premier twentieth-century jurist.”
MdHS invites students pursuing careers in archives or history to apply for this internship and help us make this valuable collection available for research. The candidate must be able to complete 120 hours of work on the project. Flexible hours available, Tuesday through Friday, 10 am to 4:30 pm.
A stipend of $1500.00 will be awarded based on the completion of 120 hours.
To be considered for this position, please send a cover letter, resume, and two professional references to the Special Collections Department by December 1, 2016:
Address: 201 West Monument Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201 Fax: 410-385-0487
