ARIAH Careers in Art History Internships

We are pleased to participate in The Association of Research Institutes in Art History (ARIAH)’s Careers in Art History Internships program. ARIAH is offering paid professional development internships for up to twenty students and recent graduates interested in careers at art museums and art history research centers. The internships will be virtual, and participants will commit from 10 to 12 hours per week for a period of four weeks. Prior museum experience is not required, and applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

The CCA’s internships will introduce decolonizing approaches to cataloguing works from the photography collection. The ARIAH project is part of a larger pilot project, “Critical Cataloguing”, which resonates with our current approach seeking to develop projects and programs related to issues of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion. For example, researchers currently interested in the environment, racism, indigenous populations, colonialism, armed conflict, and others, find it difficult to find Collection objects on the CCA website corresponding to these topics. The internship project therefore aims to expand the possibilities of exploring the online catalogue to afford access to a greater number of photographic works related to various present and past societal issues.

The following ARIAH institutions are also participating in the Careers in Art History Internships: Center for Creative Photography; Clark Art Institute; The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens; The Metropolitan Museum of Art; The Phillips Collection; Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery; and The Wolfsonian–Florida International University (FIU).

Application deadline: 26 February 2021
Program dates: 29 March to 30 April 2021
