External Board Positions
Internships & Community Projects

AUC

Interested in issues concerning non-Western political thought? Then this research internship offered by Dr. E. Cohen de Lara, teacher of Political Sciences at AUC, might be interesting for you.

 

 

For this internship the student is asked to focus on one non-Western tradition of political thought, such as the Arabic/Chinese/South-East Asian/African/Latin American tradition. The student is asked to work on an overview of the main political theory texts in this tradition, to help acquire the texts (photocopies / e-versions / hard copies), to make summaries of a select number of texts, and to develop classroom assignments connected to the texts. Depending on the workload, the student may also be asked to assist in research activities related to political theory. The student will meet with the supervisor on a weekly basis.

 

In order to apply, the student should write a one-page essay explaining which tradition you want to focus on and why. The essay should also explain any previous coursework that you have done that is relevant to the internship. The deadline for the essay is two weeks before the AUC application deadline (November 19th for the Spring 2019 four-month period) and should be emailed to: e.cohendelara@auc.nl. Please also use this email for any questions that you may have about the internship.

Red Pers

Red Pers, a Dutch online platform for journalistic development set up by students from AUC, is always looking for new writers, editors, photographers, web-developers, graphic designers, podcast- and video-makers, and PR-managers.

 

The only requirement is a basic proficiency in Dutch (only to understand and communicate, not necessarily to write or edit articles). Some experience in journalism and/or the desired position is a pre, but not a must.

 

Please take a look at www.redpers.nl/join and e-mail us at redactie@redpers.nl! Applications should always include a CV and a motivation letter, applicants who want to become writers/editors should include a journalistic article of max. 500 words (in the desired language of writing, either Dutch or English), and photographers have to include some pictures they have made (preferably journalistic, involving students and/or made in Amsterdam).

 

In case you want to apply for an internship (which will be accepted by AUC): these are always ongoing at Red Pers, so students can directly apply and get accepted at all times. Furthermore, standard AUC internship requirements apply (a minimum of 168 hours).

The Herring

The Herring strives to be an objective and independent student newspaper that encourages engagement with the AUC community and the rest of Amsterdam, stimulates dialogue by offering an inclusive platform for students to express their opinions, informs readers through extensive coverage of everything going on at and around AUC and Amsterdam and to write creative pieces.

 

The Herring also strives to be an educative platform where beginners and experienced writers alike can hone their journalistic skills. To this end, The Herring collaborates with the Journalism course offered at AUC, and continuous guidance is offered to staff writers and guest writers by the editorial board and faculty advisor.

 

Joining The Herring can count as an internship! Currently positions are open for guest writers, staff writers and a photographer. To apply, send a small motivational paragraph to auctheherring@gmail.org by September 16. If applicable, include prior experience by adding an article previously written by you. Experience is however not necessary; The Herring is an educational platform.
