Altfest Graduate Internship Program, 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…)

SHIFT Graduate Journal of Visual and Material Culture
co-edited by Elizabeth Lee and Andrea Nitsche-Krupp
with Kaylee P. Alexander, Rachel Boate, Jane Boyes, Kristina Molin Cherneski, Ariana Panbechi and Jonah Marrs
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. The home page features an original project and artwork by Jonah Marrs, and can be visited at https://shiftjournal.org/[shiftjournal.org]

The General Society of Mechanics & Tradesmen is pleased to present
CITY OF SEDITION: The History of New York During the Civil War, With Author John Strausbaugh
Tuesday, March 7th AT THE GENERAL SOCIETY LIBRARY
The Program starts at 6:30 P.M.
BOOK-SIGNING AND RECEPTION TO FOLLOW
In a talk, based on his enthralling new book, City of Sedition: The History of New York During the Civil War, author John Strausbaugh will detail the hugely conflicted role that New York City played in the Civil War.

He describes how it was highly unlikely Abraham Lincoln would have made it to the White House without support from New York City.
