National Institute for Newman Studies Paid Archival Internship

Through the generous support of the National Institute for Newman Studies, the History Department is pleased to announce the renewal of its $2,000 paid archival internship. Located in Pittsburgh's Oakland neighborhood, the Newman Institute facilitates scholarly learning and dialogue on the enduring relevance of John Henry Cardinal Newman's life, work, and influence. The institute is comprised of physical and digital libraries, a scholarly journal and a residential research center.

The intern 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 is an excellent opportunity to learn about the world of scholarly archives management, to work in one of Pittsburgh's premier cultural institutions, and receive financial support while completing graduate coursework. This internship opportunity is available to any Public History graduate student who has completed PHST 521: Introduction to Archives (offered every Fall semester) before the start date of the internship. The internship will fulfill the requirements of the Archival Internship course (PHST 658).

All interested students should notify the Director of Graduate Studies and the Internship Coordinator by email no later than October 5, 2019 to be considered for this archival internship. The internship recipient will be selected by the Director of Graduate Studies and the Public History faculty. Selection will be based on the student's academic performance and prior public history experience. Students will be notified regarding the Newman Studies award by October 10th.
