Curious about what our interns do on the job? Here's a peek at one project from this past summer:

As an oral history intern, Frank spends his time transcribing interviews, digitizing recordings, and putting together bios about interviewees. With a particular interest in indigenous history, Frank pointed out that oral history can be a valuable tool for documenting histories of underrepresented communities.

Although Frank is uncertain about whether he wants a career in history, explaining that “history requires a lot of passion,” he believes the skills he’s learned here, especially working with digital output, will be valuable in any future career.

You can apply to be this Spring's Oral History intern! Check out the position description here: http://www.mnhs.org/internships/5178. Deadline to apply is October 31st!
