National Institute for Newman Studies Internship

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 2019. It will fulfill the requirements of the Archival Internship course (PHST 658).

In order to qualify for this internship, it is REQUIRED that you attend the workshop on Digital Humanities and Newman Studies on October 16, 2018, at 10 a.m. at The Galliot Center for Newman Studies in Oakland. It is also expected that you attend the Annual Newman Lecture and Galliot Award Dinner on October 15, 2018. The lecture begins at 5:00 p.m at Heinz Chapel, followed by dinner at Pitt's University Club at 6:30.

Current students who meet the above criteria can apply. The application deadline is October 1, 2018, and the successful applicant will be notified by October 10, 2018.

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.
