Internships: Veterans Museum (Spring 2018), Publishing (Summer 2018)

Spring Internships at the Veterans Museum (Due January 15; consider applying NOW)
The Veterans Museum currently has two internships posted for Spring 2018 that may be of interest to majors: a research internship and an oral history internship. Applications are due on January 15 but consider applying NOW rather than waiting. 

Research internship: Under the supervision of the Curator of History at Wisconsin Veterans Museum, the intern will research and develop content for social media posts and a case exhibit in the Research Center. He/She will determine the topic of research and find collections and other support materials from/about which to generate content. He\She will interpret the content to create posts for the museum’s facebook page and blog and will pull together the artifacts necessary and write the labels for an exhibit to go into two cases in the museum’s Research Center. Relevant readings may be assigned. For more information, see

Oral history internship: WVM is seeking an upperclassman or graduate student to work with the Museum’s Oral History Collection - specifically in aiding to make interviews accessible online via the tool OHMS (Oral History Metadata Synchronizer). The principal responsibility for this position will be assisting the Oral Historian in preparing transcripts and indexes of selected interviews into the OHMS system by June 2018. This includes correcting and syncing transcripts, writing indexes, preparing metadata and performing quality control within the system. Due to the nature of the work it is imperative that the successful candidate is adept at learning new technology, has excellent written communication skills and is passionate about oral history and veterans' narratives. For more information, see
