Latin American News Digest Internships

The Latin American News Digest is seeking qualified students for a limited number of internships for Fall 2019. Because the goal of the Digest is essentially a didactic one, to spread the word about news from Latin America, we feel strongly about providing the opportunity for students to participate in this process. Student writers and researchers contribute to our weekly issues by aggregating and writing summaries of news articles found in Latin American sources. Ideally, internships happen in tandem with an independent study led by a faculty member of the appropriate department, but this is not a requirement. The result is an enriching experience for students who discover a variety of perspectives within the Latin American media. Students are able to identify trends and anomalies in the region, giving them a much greater breadth of knowledge and understanding of the hemisphere in which they live.
