Recruiting Organization: KRIA Icelandic Constitution Archive

About of the project: KRIA The Icelandic Constitution Archive


In 2011, Iceland wrote its constitution using a uniquely and historically open process. It reshaped the dialogue on how a population can harness technology, consensus building, and civic engagement in reimagining its foundation. Unfortunately, the material around this historical event is disappearing. KRIA is an interdisciplinary initiative to preserve its evidence and make content widely accessible.


About the Internship:


The KRIA internship is an opportunity for students interested in library science, Scandinavian studies, constitutional law, journalism, or civic movements. The internship will be conducted remotely. Tasks will be performed independently on the student's schedule. Students will meet on Zoom monthly with the Project Director and internship team to discuss ideas and progress. All positions are remote; therefore, applicants must have a computer and internet access. There are three types of internship positions available. Please refer to the descriptions below.


Compensation:


The following internship positions are unpaid. Interns will be provided a letter of recommendation, any necessary assessments, and a summary of work conducted at the close of the internship.


Term:


Three months 10-20 hours a week. The internship program is flexible to students' schedules and course requirements. We ask for a minimum commitment of 5 hours per week.

Extensions beyond the three-month term are available upon request. If participating in this internship as part of a course credit please discuss requirements with your instructor or department.
