Jennifer Hochschild Public Talk on Creating a New Racial Order on May 9th

Jennifer Hochschildwill be coming from Harvard to speak about her latest book, Creating a New Racial Order on May 9th at 4:30 in Rocky 003

The American racial order— the beliefs, institutions, and practices that organize relationships among the nation's races and ethnicities--is undergoing its greatest transformation since the 1960s. Creating a New Racial Order takes a groundbreaking look at the reasons behind this dramatic change, and considers how different groups of Americans are being affected. Through revealing narrative and striking research, the authors show that the personal and political choices of Americans will be critical to how, and how much, racial hierarchy is redefined in decades to come.

Internships 101: Use the Winter Break to Land an Upcoming Internship

Written by student program assistant Kate Shelton ’14 and Rockefeller Center Staff, the following is a post to help to provide resources and ideas on finding and securing internships. Though this post was written with Dartmouth College students in mind, it's advice that anyone searching for an internship experience can reference. Think about the equivalent office, department or academic center on your campus.

Winter interim is the perfect time to hunt down a leave-term internship. With no classes to attend, papers to write, or exams to take, you can dedicate time to finding a position for a future term.
