Digital Oral History Archiving Advance Internships 2024

Train to become an archivist

Deadline to apply: May 31, 2024

Support for advanced college internships (starting at college junior level) comes from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

About

How do we organize our histories, human knowledge, and information in this digital age? The Digital Oral History Archivist (DOHA) Fellowship program, will introduce aspiring undergrad college students to contemporary techniques in digital archiving and collections care via hands-on experiences and lectures from subject-matter experts. Interns will have the opportunity to organize, describe and preserve born-digital oral history artifacts as they arrive in the digital archive.

Currently enrolled undergrad college students across the United States interested in learning digital heritage preservation and archiving techniques are invited to apply. The six-month-long paid internship will especially be beneficial for students exploring a future career in digital archiving, digital heritage preservation, or the library and information sciences fields in general. Students interested in gaining a deeper insight into South Asian histories will find additional benefits in this internship. This internship will be especially beneficial for students interested in the library and information sciences and archival sciences field as a future career path.

Students will attend a series of lectures delivered by experts in the field and gain hands-on experience in cloud-based cataloging, handling, and preservation of born-digital oral history collections to be described in Stanford University Libraries’ Digital Repository for broad dissemination. Specifically, students will be handling digital oral history artifacts alongside professional archivists as they arrive at The 1947 Partition Archive. Students will also learn to identify nuances and evaluate ethical considerations when curating digital oral history artifacts for dissemination on popular social media platforms for the public. Lectures will include topics on the history of techniques used by humans to preserve history, on the library and information sciences field, on oral history in the digital age, ethical handling of sensitive collections, and geo-tagging in politically evolving regions, among others. Students emerging from the program will have a solid practical basis from which to explore more advanced topics within the library and information science fields as well as the humanities in general.

This is a remote, part-time fellowship that will unfold alongside the student’s regular college work, although students will be required to attend a mandatory orientation in Berkeley, California at The 1947 Partition Archive’s headquarters. The orientation will include field trips to the University of California at Berkeley’s South and South-East Asia libraries, as well as the Stanford University Libraries. Fellows will receive a laptop (to be returned at the end of the fellowship) as well as a monthly stipend.

Commitment
The DOHA internship is a part-time commitment requiring students to devote a minimum of 10 hours per week over a period of 6 months to fellowship-related activities, for a total of 240 hours. For the first six weeks, students must complete their 10 hours per week live online. A one-week fall Thanksgiving break and a three-week New Years winter break will be included.
