The Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project, a documentary editing project located on the Campus of The George Washington University, is seeking undergraduate and graduate interns for the summer of 2012.
The Project collects, transcribes, and accessions material by and to Eleanor Roosevelt relating to her post White House political life. The Project is committed to offering interns a wide range of archival and editing experiences — including organization of documents, web development, and general office work. Many students also complete independent research projects on a topic related to the holdings of the Project.
Some background in U.S. history, women's history/women's studies, or international affairs is desirable. Foreign language skills are also useful. Applicants interested in the digital humanities and/or with experience using XML are encouraged to apply.
