CHID Local/Global Internship opportunity Summer 2011

Submitted by Comparative History Of Ideas on

The UW CHID 2011 Local/Global Internships in Seattle: Agency, Theory, and Change provides a unique opportunity for selected undergraduates to earn full-time, academic credit while exploring the connections between global ideas and local work.  Over an 8-week period, students will both work in local organizations with a transnational focus and participate in seminars which will provide a space for reflection on how to incorporate theory into practice.

Students will be expected to volunteer 10 hours a week (or 80 hours total). The program is responsible for placing the students into appropriate internship positions. Students may suggest their own placements, but it is not necessary. The internship themes include:

  • Identity Politics
  • Animal Rights
  • Violence
  • Human Rights
  • Immigration
  • Indigenous Issues
  • Legal Rights

Admitted students may request their own placements. To qualify, students must meet one-on-one with Dr. Christina Wygant:
