Public History Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 New York City, NY
“Every part of the internship was rewarding and a great education experience. I worked with archives and got to conduct historical research. In addition to interest work, the office had a friendly and open culture, the internship (GLI archives) was very well located. Interns also got an ID card that allowed us free or reduced admission into many NYC museums. ”
