Fall 2019 Undergraduate Internships

The deadline for applications is Monday, April 1 at 5PM EST. For more information and to submit an application, visit our Undergraduate Internships page.

The internship program provides experiential education in the intellectual, organizational, and practical work of oral history. Interns will work collaboratively on a research project focused the centennial of the 19th amendment, the multifaceted political and social impact of women’s suffrage, and how women across racial, class, and regional categories interact with electoral politics today. Interns will learn to conduct interviews and engage with the practice of oral history; assist with ongoing SOHP projects; collection management, digital exhibits, and public engagement; and participation in a weekly seminar that deepens academic understanding of oral history.

Four interns are accepted into the program and enroll in History 593: Exploring the US South Hands On and Ears Open: Internship at the Southern Oral History. Interns work a total of twelve hours per week (five hours of organizational work, five hours on the research project, and two hours of seminar). They will earn three hours of internship credit through the requirements of their home departments.

Questions can be submitted to Sara Wood: swood@unc.edu.
