Internship Program

11142432_883484865041094_1278842880301246034_oThe Samuel Proctor Oral History Program at the University of Florida offers semester-long academic internships, available to graduate and undergraduate students for 3 credit hours, which serve as an introduction to the field of oral history.

Intern duties include learning oral history methodology and field research techniques, including conducting, transcribing, and audit-editing interviews.

In addition to this core structure, internships are tailored to the strengths of our students: are you interested in event planning? Public relations? Audio and film editing? We have the resources and opportunities to help you.

Course Goals

Each semester, SPOHP seeks motivated students to help to reach program goals. The internship is designed to provide students with an introduction to the field of oral history, as well as hands-on experience in the areas of research, interviewing, processing, technology, and educational outreach. It will be taught in Fall 2018 by Associate Program Director Dr. Ryan Morini.

Each semester, interns accomplish several main goals:

  • Build foundational knowledge of oral history methodology and research use
  • Work on oral history interview processing
  • Conduct an original oral history interview
  • Develop a podcast for the UFDC and iTunes broadcast
  • Contribute to the class group video project

For more information about course goals, scheduling, and project topics, view the Spring 2013 Internship Syllabus and Spring 2014 Internship Syllabus.

Fall 2018

SPOHP’s Fall 2018 internship focuses on the narratives of women, queer folks, and people of color in the DIY Punk scene both in the U.S. and throughout the wider world. It also focuses on why and how people create these spaces for themselves. We will publicly archive oral history interviews to allow people of color, women, and queer punks to describe their experiences in their own words and voices. What kinds of spaces for resistance and social justice can people create when they overtly reject social norms?

  • SPOHP Intern Opportunities:
  • Interviewing and fieldwork methods and theory
  • Transcription and interview processing
  • Podcasting and audio editing
  • Social media and public event promotion
  • Short documentaries and video editing
  • Public and community engagement and theory

Applications deadline closed on April 16th, 2018
