Section Information for Spring 2020
Participants will work as a research assistant for the Editor-in-Chief on the 4-volume third edition of the Encyclopedia of Violence Peace, and Conflict. They will assist in the process of finding and securing authors for about 280 entries (6,000-10,000 words each) and doing background research and building a Zotero library on major sources and authors for many of the topics. Interns' names will be mentioned in the Encyclopedia as research assistants on the project. This project is consistent with the Departmental emphasis on Public Sociology.
The number of credits corresponds to the number of hours spent on the internship, including on-site hours. Each credit hour is equivalent to 45 hours of work. Hence, three credits are equivalent to 135 hours per semester of internship work. Students will meet the above objectives by reflecting on and writing about their internship experience, by staying in close communication with their supervisor and faculty advisor, and by developing, with their faculty advisor, an academic project/paper that links their internship experience to their Sociology course work.
