Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library
The Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library (DOML) was launched in 2010 and already includes more than 25 volumes. Published by Harvard University Press, DOML’s three subseries include Byzantine Greek; Medieval Latin; and Old English. The DOML facing-page translations are designed to make written achievements of medieval and Byzantine culture available to both scholars and general readers in the English-speaking world.
Three DOML summer interns will assist with preparation of volumes for publication. Interns working on the Medieval Latin subseries will have the opportunity to work closely with post-classical Latin and to gain exposure to various stages of book publication, from copyediting through proofreading. Interns may be expected to review digitizations of original-language texts and verify translations for accuracy; and to verify quotations by consulting existing editions and translations. In the process they may be asked to check words in the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae or to double-check consistency between text and apparatus criticus. Attention to detail, copyediting skills (or willingness to learn), and familiarity with Latin (and Greek, if possible) are basic prerequisites.
To apply for an internship in the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library, please send (1) your résumé; (2) a statement of interest describing any relevant experience and how this internship fits into your personal and professional development; and (3) the names of two referees familiar with your scholarly work (preferably as one pdf document) to Internships@doaks.org. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2013.
For more details, please write to Internships@doaks.org.
