Anthropology Internship Program

Interested in museums?
The Anthropology Internship Program offers academic credit, unpaid and paid internships for undergraduate and graduate students interested in careers in anthropology, museums or related fields. Anthropology interns work on projects relating to the collections or to the ongoing research interests of the curatorial staff in the museum or in the field. The department’s collections and research are focused on North American, Mexican/Central American and South American archaeology and ethnology; Asian, African and Pacific ethnology; and Biological Anthropology. In addition, internships are awarded in collections management, archives and conservation. Applicants should be enrolled in or have recently graduated from an academic institution. Acceptance to the internship program is competitive. The number of interns accepted in any given session varies and is based on staff projects. Internships are limited to a maximum of two sessions of work.

Promised Land Documentary – Friday May 5, 7:00 PM, 5th Ave Cinema

FILM SCREENING: PROMISED LAND
May 5th, 7 p.m., 5th Avenue Cinema on campus.
Promised Land is an award-winning social justice documentary that follows two tribes in the Pacific Northwest: the Duwamish and the Chinook, as they fight for the restoration of treaty rights they’ve long been denied. In following their story, the film examines a larger problem in the way that the government and society still looks at tribal sovereignty. It has been chosen for the award for Achievement in Documentary Filmmaking at the 10th Annual LA Skins Fest, and was an official selection for the 41st Annual American Indian Film Festival, Northwest Film Forum’s 19th Annual Local Sightings Film Festival, the 12th Annual Ellensburg Film Festival, and the 5th Annual Social Justice Film Festival, among others.
To learn more about the film, visit http://promisedlanddoc.com.
Suggested donation at the door: $5. A portion of the night’s proceeds goes to supporting the tribe.
Free popcorn and post-film discussion with Chinook Indian Nation elders; Duwamish Tribe Councilmember, Ken Workman; PSU Professor Kenneth Ames; and the filmmakers.
Sponsored by Portland State University’s Department of Anthropology and University Studies.
