Dumbarton Oaks 75th Anniversary Social Media Internship

Mildred Barnes Bliss

The intern will assist with the research and creation of social media postings related to the 75th anniversary of Dumbarton Oaks, to be celebrated between September 2015 and May 2016. Activities and responsibilities will include (1) researching the institute’s personnel, programs, and activities during its first period of significance, from 1940 to 1974, using the resources of the Dumbarton Oaks Archives and Library as well as online resources; (2) preparing from this research short illustrated postings for (a) the Dumbarton Oaks website, including an illustrated timeline slider, (b) possibly a stand-alone blog to be initiated and designed by the intern, and (c) various established blog and Facebook pages; and (3) composing posts on the institute’s history to be published through Twitter. No HTML or other coding experience or publication experience is required, although some familiarity with social media and web/blog posting is desirable. Demonstrated research and creative writing skills would be an advantage.
