Summer 2024 Project This summer, the Pinkard-Bolton intern will conduct original research on the history of Homewood Museum, with the goal of completing an online exhibition to present their research. Work will be supervised by the JHU Museums' curator of collections and will potentially include research focused on enslaved and convict labor conducted when the property was under the ownership of Samuel Wyman during the mid-19th century. Students will be expected to conduct research on-site at Homewood and possibly at other archives in the Baltimore area. Over the course of the summer, the selected student will have opportunities to conduct archival research, practice writing for a general museum audience, and gain practical experience in day-to-day museum work.
The Pinkard-Bolton internship includes a $1,500 stipend to be paid for approximately 100 hours of work over the course of eight weeks during summer 2024 at Homewood Museum ($15/hour). The selected candidate will work with the curator of collections to arrange a schedule that works best to complete these hours.
Eligibility All candidates must be enrolled as undergraduate students at Johns Hopkins University and should have some relevant coursework in at least one of the following: American art, American architecture, American history, anthropology, material culture, education, or the Museums & Society Program. Information on Homewood Museum may be found on its website.
To Apply Applicants should submit a resume or curriculum vitae, a reference letter from a professor or previous supervisor, as well as a letter of interest describing interests and relevant experience by Friday, March 15. All materials should be emailed to Curator of Collections Michelle Fitzgerald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
