Internships at The Henry Moore Institute
Each year we invite applications for four funded internships from students across MA programmes at UK universities. The internships are aimed at students who have a research interest in sculpture and are intended to provide practical experience of working in a museum environment. Internships relate to our collections, exhibitions and research programme and involve students working closely with members of staff.
The timing of each internship is arranged according to applicant and project schedule. Travel and, if necessary, accommodation will be provided. An award of £250 will be given to students at the end of the two-week internships.
Our 2016 intern projects are:
Sculpture and Self-Portraiture
This project involves research into the relatively under-researched area of sculptural self-portraits, looking at this mode of self-representation from medieval times to the present. Primarily using the Institute's Research Library the project requires the sourcing of relevant images and developing ideas alongside Institute staff as the starting point for an academic conference which will be held in the summer of 2016. This internship will be supervised by Research Curator Dr Jon Wood.
This project involves research into the practicalities of filming sculpture. The Henry Moore Institute has a longstanding interest in the theoretical concerns involved in the relationship between sculpture and film and in 2016 will be publishing an edited volume of essays on this subject. This internship will involve rather an investigation of the practicalities involved in filming sculpture. The internship will be supervised by Research Curator Dr Jon Wood, with the intention of developing a future workshop in collaboration with a film-maker.
To apply, outline how the internship relates to your experience and interests (500 words) and email with your CV to Kirstie Gregory, Research Programme Assistant: firstname.lastname@example.org
