Editorial Acquisitions Intern
In the Fall 2018 semester, the Center for Asian Studies is offering a 2-credit internship at Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to an undergraduate student with an interest in Asia.
Rowman & Littlefield is a leading independent academic press located in Louisville that is committed to publishing enduring works of scholarship, serious trade books, and upper-division classroom texts across the social sciences.
The intern will assist the History, International Studies, and Geography acquisitions group with a variety of tasks, including contacting scholars for endorsements and reviews, online research, and data entry. The intern will also have an opportunity to learn about the big picture of academic publishing by attending editorial board meetings, editorial planning meetings, and the like. Every effort will be made to involve the intern in Asia-related projects, but the wide range of lists handled by the group will dictate that other subject areas will be part of the workflow as well.
This unpaid internship will begin in September and run through the last week of classes before finals. It will require six hours per week for a total of 90 hours over the course of the semester. The intern will receive academic credit (in the Asian Studies program) for the internship.
Eligibility Requirements: Open to undergraduate students majoring in Asian Studies, Chinese, or Japanese, or other disciplines such as History or International Affairs with a concentration in Asia. Applicants must have completed a minimum of 30 hours of college-level coursework with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 before the start of fall semester. Must be fluent in written and spoken English.
The deadline for applications will be Monday, September 10. Successful applicants are expected to begin the position as soon as possible following their selection for the internship. To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and transcript to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject “Rowman & Littlefield Internship.” Contact Danielle Rocheleau Salaz at email@example.com or 303-735-5312 with questions.
