For Durham Students
All Durham UG and post-grads are welcome to get involved with the project. We are extremely lucky to now have the Midgley Archive at Durham, especially as this material is yet to be studied. We don’t currently have any funding for our interns but we can help find you work that will contribute to your studies – perhaps forming the basis of your dissertation – and enhance your c.v.
You might also consider applying for a Durham University Scholarship through the In Parenthesis project. One of our current students, Sebastian Sanchez-Schilling, won a Laidlaw Scholarship for a project on Virtue Ethics. You can read about his trip to the archives here.
We are currently welcoming expressions of interest from MA and research students in EU universities for a traineeship on the In Parenthesis project through the instrument of Erasmus+. The internship will be funded via Erasmus+ through the ‘Sending Institution’ – that is, your home university. If you are interested, drop us an email outlining how you meet the ‘The Intern’ criteria, along with your CV (please direct emails fao. Clare Mac Cumhaill (firstname.lastname@example.org). Below is a sample ‘Learning Agreement’ which you can send to your Erasmus co-ordinator at your home institution in order to establish your eligibility (viz. from the point of view of the ‘Sending Institution’ and your particular study program). Fortunately, Erasmus+ is still live for 2017-2018 despite the recent referendum. We welcome your applications and to fostering new research links outwith the UK.
If you are interested in an internship on In Parenthesis outside the Erasmus scheme, please do contact us to discuss. We always have short project and research work we need help with, including working in the Midgley archive and writing for our website. Though we do not currently have funding available for interns (outside of Erasmus), we are doing what we can to secure some for future work, so it’s worth letting us know who you are and how you would like to be involved.
