NAN PINKARD & AURELIA BOLTON CURATORIAL INTERNSHIP

Summer 2024

Location: Homewood Museum

PROJECT

This internship will include a $1,500 stipend to be paid for approximately 100 hours of work over the course of 8 weeks during Summer 2024 at Homewood Museum (15.00/hr). The selected candidate will work with the Curator of Collections to arrange a schedule that works best to complete these hours.

This summer, the Pinkard-Bolton intern will work closely with JHU Museums’ Curator of Collections to conduct original research on the mid-19th century history of Homewood Museum with the goal of completing an online exhibition to present their research.

Work will potentially include research focused on convict labor and slavery when the property was under the ownership of Samuel Wyman. 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 semester, 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.

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 online at http://museums.jhu.edu.
