Call for Applications: Internships at the Sarai Archive

The Sarai Programme invites applications for internships for a period of 2 months (18th February to 19th April 2019) at the Sarai archive. Over the years, we have built a rich archive of field notes, government reports, images, films and video footage, audio collections, film and trade periodicals, posters, comics and newspaper clippings through various initiatives, projects and fellowship programmes, such as Publics and Practices in the History of the Present (PPHP), Cybermohalla (neighbourhood media labs), Independent Fellowship Programme (2002-2007), and the Social Media Fellowships.

Interns will be required to work on the audio and visual collections at the archive. The aim of the internship is to produce a complete thematic and material map – in the form of catalogues, digitized documents, and annotations – of these collections. A stipend will be offered for the duration of the internships.

Interested candidates should send a one-page CV and a statement of purpose no longer than one page to with the subject line: ‘Archival Internships’ by 30th January 2019.

Please note: This call is now closed.
