LGBT History Project Internship
The ONE Archives Foundation is accepting applications for current or recently graduated college student interns to help create LGBT History panel exhibitions that will be used by non-profit organizations, corporations, universities, and high schools nationwide to teach LGBT history. The project will involve using the collections at ONE Archives at the USC Libraries to research, develop, and write content, pull images for the exhibitions, and also help design the panels.
Past panel exhibitions have included Responses to AIDS, Notable LGBT Individuals in Television, Pioneers of the LGBT Movement, and Gay Parenting, to name a few. The ideal candidate will have a knowledge of and passion for LGBTQ history and strong writing skills. Candidates must be available for at least 10 hours a week for a minimum of a 12-week period (hours are flexible and can be adjusted based on the student’s schedule).
