Internship Opportunity: Andrew W. Mellon Undergraduate Internships in Environmental Humanities, 2018–2019 - Application Deadline: March 1, 2018 at 5:00 p.m.
Environmental Humanities is environmental studies from a humanistic standpoint. Envrionmental Humanities pulls from different movements (environmental philosophy, environmental history, ecocriticism, cultural geography, anthropology, and others) to study the relationship between humans and non-human nature, past and present.
The Illinois Program for Research in the Humanities (IPRH), with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is looking for undergraduate interns to work with its Environmental Humanities research group for the academic year 2018–2019. The IPRH-Mellon Environmental Humanities Research Group is composed of professors, post-doctoral scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates from different disciplines who are united by their desire to understand the human place in nature, as well as to examine critically the way people make meaning of it.
The research group seeks three undergraduate interns who will work with the group on their seminars, workshops, and programs. Interns will also work with the research group director, Professor Bob Morrissey, to develop their own research projects as well as a research symposium for undergraduates at the end of the spring semester. Interns will work approximately 10 to 11 hours per week, paid at the rate of $15.75 per hour (up to $5000/year), and will have up to $600 to support their research.
