Description: The U.S. Department of State is the lead U.S. foreign affairs agency responsible for advancing freedom for the benefit of the American people and the international community. The Department’s employees, Foreign Service Officers and Specialists, Civil Service professionals and Foreign Service Nationals work at more than 270 embassies, consulates, and missions. Together, they help to build and sustain a more democratic, secure, and prosperous world composed of well-governed states that respond to the needs of their people, reduce widespread poverty, and act responsibly within the international system.

The U.S. Department of State Student Internship is an unpaid, intensive internship offering U.S. citizen undergraduate and graduate students a chance to participate in the formulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy, working closely with representatives of the U.S. Department of State’s Foreign and Civil Services. The program is both professionally and academically beneficial, providing participants with hands-on experience and insight into the substance and daily operations of U.S. foreign policy.

About half of U.S. Department of State Student Internship participants serve in Washington, D.C., with a limited number of opportunities available at Department field offices and facilities in other cities in the United States. Approximately half of these opportunities are offered in many of the over 270 U.S. embassies, consulates and missions to international organizations around the world. The U.S. Department of State Student Internship is also the only program within the agency that offers U.S. citizen undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate overseas.

Applicants are allowed to select two bureaus or overseas posts in which they would like to work. U.S. Department of State Student Internships generally last 10 weeks. Participants must be able to work a full time schedule (minimum of 32 hours per week).

The U.S. Department of State Student Internship is NOT part of the Pathways Program. Unpaid internships in the U.S. Department of State Student Internship program cannot be non-competitively converted to Pathways Internship appointments, nor can they be non-competitively converted to career positions in the U.S. Department of State’s Foreign or Civil Services.

Responsibilities

The Department of State tries to provide Student Interns with opportunities both educationally and professionally substantive in nature. The purpose of the program is to provide students with insight into the work of U.S. foreign policy and the administration of the U.S. Department of State and its diplomatic facilities around the world. Specific duties and responsibilities vary according to the domestic office or overseas post of assignment. Former Department of State Student Interns have written reports on human rights issues, participated in trade negotiations, assisted with U.S. citizens services or visa work, helped Americans in distress abroad, supported and helped to coordinate international conferences and visits of high-level officials, researched economic or environmental issues, monitored and evaluated media reporting, supported educational and cultural exchange activities and identified U.S. experts to speak overseas, and worked on web pages and electronic journals.

Other examples include interns with scientific and technical backgrounds working on issues such as arms control, genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), infectious diseases, and remote sensing.

Also, students interested in management and administration may use their expertise working on projects involving budgets, human resources, information systems, or general logistical support to posts abroad.

Student Experience Interns should also expect to do some routine administrative work.

Digital Archives Intern- Remote- Bahamas

Approximate date of posting 9/27/2017

 Position: digital archives, digital preservation, or web development

Eligibility Remote internship opportunity for anyone who has experience with digital archives, digital preservation, or web development

Location: (Remote)

Company/Organization  University of the Bahamas

SeaGrass: Stories and Writers of the Bahamas is a digital project that will archive the oral and literary traditions of the Bahamas. One of the greatest resources that a country has is its cultural history. This project enacts a call to cement in public memory not only the cultural objects of Bahamians but also the stories, literature, and histories that make up the cultural narrative of the Bahamas. This work is directly connected to national development because of its mission to record and archive oral and literary culture in the Bahamas.

With SeaGrass, we will launch a project for the acquisition, preservation, and dissemination of oral and literary narratives in the Bahamas. The mission of the project will be twofold: 1) We will collect biographical information pertaining to contemporary and historical Bahamian authors in order to create a reference database for students, teachers, and citizens of the Bahamas. 2) We will collect oral narratives by Bahamian community members to create an archive of oral storytelling. The two prongs of this project will work in conjunction with each other to create the parameters for the archive. The digital form will allow for the project to continue and grow from its initial phase to include more Bahamian artists and storytellers.

The entire digital archive acts as a repository by storing hypermedia materials to allow long term access to the public. This project aids in the preservation of The Bahamas’ oral and literary traditions as well as disseminating knowledge about contemporary Bahamian writers. This project will build the Bahamas’ national reputation as one with a robust oral and literary tradition.

Schedule/Hours To be arranged, Flexible

Time Frame Unspecified

Compensation: Unpaid

Source http://news.cci.fsu.edu/jobs-and-internships/cci-internships/ischool-internships/remote-internship-opportunity-for-those-with-with-digital-archives-digital-preservation-or-web-development-skills/

Description:

The first section of the archive on established writers will serve as a source for Bahamian students, teachers, and citizens. It will also be freely available on the web for international scholars and students who may be studying Bahamian writers. We will provide biographical information and a list of works for each Bahamian author featured on the site. The goal is to be comprehensive and include authors from the past and contemporary authors; the comprehensiveness will be built over time so we will start with contemporary writers important to the Bahamian and UB communities and build from there. In addition to basic information about the authors, further content for each author could contain sample work, interviews, images, and other articles.

The second section of the project will engage the larger community by recording oral narratives from community members. In the initial stage of the project, we will record oral histories and narratives from community members in specific locations, such as the Gambier and Adelaide communities.

As the project continues, it will be expanded to include communities around the country. We will pilot this oral history collection project in New Providence and one location on the family islands during the initial phase of the project. Additionally, we will be able to incorporate assignments into our classes where students record and document oral narratives.

This project is modeled after storytelling collection projects in the United States, such as StoryCorps. The goal of StoryCorps is not only to collect stories but also to highlight stories from populations who are not regularly represented on the larger national scale. The focus on oral narratives is an important part of this project because it recognizes the orality of the Bahamian culture and will give voice to people who are not as comfortable or practiced at representing themselves in print.

Proposed Methodology and Data Analysis:

We initially will collect the information to be documented within the archive. This includes recording interviews through video of the storytellers and contemporary writers, obtaining biographical information of both parties, excerpts of works, and photographs. When appropriate, we will also include music audio and artwork related to the writers’ thematic emphases. We then will archive this information and materials on a website titled SeaGrass: Stories and Writers of The Bahamas.
