Announcement: Undergraduate Summer Internship
The internship will take place June 3–July 26, 2024
The Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies is pleased to announce the first paid undergraduate summer internship position. Two undergraduate researchers will be selected to join the Khayrallah Center for an 8-week program dedicated to educating participants in the professional application of humanities scholarship, especially as it pertains to the history of Arab Americans. These students will spend the internship period conceptualizing and producing a final project related to the Khayrallah Center’s mission and holdings. At the completion of the internship, each intern will make a final presentation of what they’ve learned over the 8-week period.
One student will focus on archival management and primarily work with Lead Archivist Laura Lethers in the KCLDS Archive. The internship will provide hands-on archival experience and training; associated duties will include but not be limited to handling of archival materials, digitization, metadata work, data entry, and uploading digitized material to public-facing databases.
One student will focus on public history and primarily work with Director of Research Lindsey Waldenberg. The internship will include but not be limited to working with the KCLDS archival collections, conducting research, and developing a digital humanities project or similar public history product in line with the Khayrallah Center’s mission.
Each student will commit to 35 hours per week in the internship. This time includes professional development opportunities with NC State faculty, field trips to area cultural institutions, and optional social outings with the Khayrallah Center staff. University housing is provided upon request.
