SAW Internship Program
The Society for the Anthropology of Work welcomes applications from pre-doctoral students for a paid internship for 8 weeks during the summer of 2013 at United Workers (www.unitedworkers.org), a community-based, labor rights group in Baltimore, Maryland. The SAW scholar would work with the community group on their ongoing qualitative research. Specifics of the summer project would depend upon the intern’s particular research interests and on negotiations with United Workers, but the SAW Intern would be expected to summarize their work on the SAW website and in a column for Anthropology News. The stipend for the summer would be $2000, with housing possible through United Workers.
Interested applicants should send a narrative of no more than 3 pages outlining their interest in the anthropology of work and their goals for the summer internship, a c.v., an official transcript from their doctoral program and a sealed recommendation letter from a faculty advisor (this may be sent separately).
