Introducing the Spring 2014 Interns

Polar vortexes and near record snow falls might have grounded many of us this winter, but not the 17 intrepid Loyola students participating in HIST 398, the History Undergraduate Internship, this semester.  HIST 398 allows undergraduates to earn 3 credit hours and to satisfy Loyola’s Engaged Learning requirement in return for interning on a historically-based project of their choosing.  Each week these interns are traveling to venerable institutions in the Loop; basements in Edgewater; and (from the comfort of the library or their dorm rooms) seventeenth-century Jamaica, nineteenth-century Chicago, Nazi Germany, and post-Katrina New Orleans.  In their internships, students are putting the skills they have learned in the classroom to work in various “real world” applications.

Education Internship at the National Hellenic Museum

The Richard Hunt Legacy Project Internship

Loyola is in the process of working with Richard Hunt, one of the few well-recognized African American contemporary sculptors, and is looking for an intern to work on the project.  Hunt came of age as an artist at a time when few black artists in the U.S. were making careers for themselves, let alone becoming household names.  He persevered through some very tough times as the art world continuously changed from abstraction to pop to minimalism to conceptual art and back again to figuration and representation.  He and a few colleagues -- Benny Andrews, Robert Cole Scott, Mel Edwards, Betty Saar -- created a career for themselves over five decades but their stories have never been told.
