Remote Internship - Research and Planning Intern, Histoury
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Allison Casazza
Email The Author: allison@histoury.org
Website: http://www.histoury.org

Our interns work remotely and the schedule has a lot of flexibility, meaning they can more or less pick their own schedule. Interns should be available for occasional travel to localities in the southern Connecticut and New York to conduct research.

We are looking for about two interns (current students or recent grads) that can commit ten hours per week over the course of the semester or summer, if more is needed for school credit we can accommodate that. Similarly, if the candidate cannot commit ten hours but is eager to become involved, we can potentially offer an internship position.

We have a position open for the remainder of the fall semester. There is also the opportunity for interns to come onboard for the winter break, and we are interested in offering an “accelerated” internship in which they can do more hours for this shortened.

The position is research based, mainly identifying historic resources in a given community and developing architectural and historical descriptions for use in guided tours using a variety of source documents. The intern will gain exposure to the heritage tourism industry and experience with historical research and interpretation. Projects involve conducting research online, at archives, local historical societies, libraries, town/city halls, and courthouses in order to ascertain important information about the buildings, including year of construction, modifications, and the significance of the architect, residents, and events associated with the building. These skills are used regularly in many disciplines of historic preservation and history. The intern will also become familiarized with the cultural landscape of regions throughout the northeast, particularly community development and regional architectural movements.

Other assignments include developing tour itinerary, taking into account many variables that go into planning successful educational tours; documenting historical images; and developing mixed media (e.g. booklets and slideshow videos) to be used during tours.

Submit a letter of interest and resume to Allison Casazza at allison@histoury.org.
