A public history project to watch!

Ok, #HATM community, here’s our big news: we have caught the eye of Netflix Film who asked us to create a thread for THE KING. It’s a huge honor for our community and the forum we’ve created to be acknowledged like this.

So what does this mean? I’ll be crafting the thread this weekend but I’d love your help, especially from our experts in English, French, & Shakespearean history. Watch the movie and send me your thoughts!

That said, we are still watching ALWAYS BE MY MAYBE this Sunday at 8:30pm Eastern so grab a friend for your weekly date with #HATM!

I’m proud of what we’ve created and the best is yet to come. See you soon.

Fall 2019 Internship Opportunity Available! Chinese Exclusion Act Case File Digitization Project

Interested in immigration history, diaspora studies, or Chinese American history? Would you like to gain valuable experience in archives management at the nation’s record keeper? The Chinese Historical Society of Southern California in partnership with the National Archives at Riverside is offering a paid internship this Fall 2019. We will train you to process and digitize records pertaining to the Chinese Exclusion Case Files Collection. Internship will be conducted from October 2019 to January 2020 for a total of 150 hours. $2000 stipend. Undergraduate and Graduate students are eligible to apply.

Must have reliable transportation and clear Federal government background check. All work will be conducted at the National Archives and Records Administration, Riverside Branch located at 23123 Cajalco Rd, Perris, CA 92570.

Instructions to apply: To apply, send your resume and 200 word narrative stating your interest in the project. Apply at [email protected] by September 30, 2019.

Project Background

The National Archives at Riverside has 700 boxes of Record Group 85, which contain documents related to the enforcement of Chinese Exclusion within the Southern California region. Files provide vital information pertaining to Chinese immigrants applying for approval to travel to China and return under the terms of the 1894 Gresham-Yang Treaty. The content of these files include photographs, physical descriptions, transcripts of interviews with applicants who discussed place of birth and date of immigration to the United States, cities of residence, occupation and previous residences since arrival. Chinese Exclusion Act Case Files often feature interviews with additional Chinese residents, family members and business associates. Since Chinese merchants were exempted from Chinese Exclusion Acts (1882 to 1943), these files also contain similar applications from merchants with variations based on their need to prove non-laborer status.

The records contained in the Chinese Exclusion Act Case Files at the National Archives at Riverside provide priceless information for individuals conducting family research, historians researching immigration patterns of immigrant communities and their social and economic networks, gender studies, diaspora studies and transnational associations by district. As of May 2019, eight boxes have been digitized, representing a total number of 8505 documents scanned.

Purpose and Goals

This digitization project is designed to digitize each, and every individual Chinese Exclusion Act Case File currently located at the National Archives at Riverside.

The project aims to: Digitize fragile documents for current and future generations. Increase public accessibility to the National Archives collection by making the collection available to the public through an online database. Increase public awareness of U.S. immigration laws with a focus on the Chinese immigrant experience in Southern California.

CALL FOR APPLICANTS

This year-long career development program (September 2019 – June 2020) is inspired by a message from anthropologist and science museum professional Adrian van Allen (Quai Branly Museum, Paris:) “People in museums are either academically trained or practically trained. If you can come in with both you are a perfect candidate.” H-SCHIP will develop technical skills and background knowledge appropriate for careers in science museums, archives, science communication, and public history. A thorough knowledge of exhibit design, public pedagogy, and digital humanities is essential for academically trained researchers who choose to pursue public-facing careers. Through the development of digital programming, interpretive installations, and public pedagogy, H-SCHIP will bridge this gap between theory and praxis and allow students to enter the job market as competitive candidates.

Currently accepting applications from UCR, UCLA, UCI, UCSB, and UCSD.

Due July 19, 2019.
