MotherWoman is looking for students for summer and fall 2014

MotherWoman is looking for students for the summer and fall 2014 internships.
Please see link for comprehensive list http://www.motherwoman.org/employment


SWG Interns work with archivists and learn the multiple facets of archival work in Smith’s internationally recognized repository of women’s history sources. The intern will learn how manuscript collections are acquired and prepared for research, the basics of organizing and describing collections and she may write about a particular collection for the SSC newsletter or help prepare an exhibit. A SWG Internship counts as one of the required practical experiences for fulfilling the Archives Concentration.

The internship will focus on helping prepare recent SSC acquisitions of special interest to SWG for future use in our classes.

The summer 2014 intern will be processing the papers of Saralee Hamilton, who worked for the American Friends Service Committee for 31 years, directing their Nationwide Women’s Program, and was involved with the Reproductive Rights National Network and the Commitee to End Sterilization Abuse.

Deadline: March 15, 2014
