Altfest Graduate Internships, Summer 2018

The Graduate Center Office of Career Planning and Professional Development facilitates partnerships with local institutions to host graduate student internships. The opportunities are meant to encourage graduate students to explore diverse career options, while developing skills and experience that will advance their career goals.

For summer 2018, we are allowing students to create their own internship opportunity at an organization that best suits their academic interests and/or professional goals. Students who find a summer internship with an organization may then apply to the Altfest Graduate Internship Program for funding. The program provides $4,000 for the summer; interns are expected to work a minimum of 120 total hours. The manner in which these hours are completed can be flexible, and will be agreed upon with the host during the application process. The Office of Career Planning and Professional Development is happy to assist students with their internships searches.   (more…)

Issue 10 of SHIFT, an institutionally mobile peer-reviewed graduate journal currently hosted by the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU, brings together articles that address an array of objects and eras: the sonic interventions of a tape recorder, a socially critical fin de siècle self-portrait, the Paisley patterns of a cotton shawl, the gold-accented ceramics of a Persian interior, and a little traffic light man who outlived the Iron Curtain.
