We are looking for a student editor for the department newsletter that is published early summer. It is mailed to alumni, donors and retirees and posted on the department website.
This internship provides an opportunity to do research and interviews and write draft copy. The best candidate should be a history or history-social sciences education major, have an interest in newsletter creation, be able to conduct productive interviews and be comfortable working independently. Photography skills are desirable. An interest in historical writing is a plus, but not required. This is an unpaid Internship that earns 3 hours credit.

Assistant Professor of History, Kathryn Jasper, and Assistant Professor of Art History, Lea Cline, are currently leading a study abroad program this summer in Orvieto, Italy.
Students from both the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Fine Arts are spending four weeks in Italy learning about Italian language, culture, art, and history. Classes combine traditional lectures and discussions with visits to city monuments and excursions. The group visits the Vatican and Coliseum in Rome, the Uffizi Galleries in Florence, and the great cathedral of Siena, among other sites. Through active participation in site visits, cultural exchanges, community events, and classroom learning, students have the opportunity to examine the city of Orvieto and the modern nation of Italy from a historical, artistic, and cultural perspective.
