Call for Projects: UMBC Interdisciplinary CoLab

Summer Internship in Narrative-Based Research

November 8, 2018 1:19 PM
The UMBC Interdisciplinary CoLab supports 3-5 narrative-based research projects to provide undergraduate students with an innovative, team-based applied learning opportunity through a three-credit (4-week, 30-hours per week) paid internship.

Ideal projects bring together 3-5 students with a UMBC faculty or staff member, who serves as the Project Leader
  • to utilize diverse research methods, modes of analysis, and tools
  • to produce public-facing final projects. 
For example, projects could engage with archived texts and images to develop websites, build podcasts from oral history or ethnographic interviews, or work with communities on documentary films and digital stories.

The goal is to provide students with an interdisciplinary research experience while developing collaborative skills, telling effective stories, and amplifying voices to the general public. Projects can be proposed by faculty or staff members, alone or in collaboration with outside community partners.
