Without congressional action, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will expire on March 5, 2018. We do not know what the results of congressional debate will be for DACA or how these will influence other immigration issues and statuses. The Anthropology Department’s goal is to support you during this uncertain time. NYU will continue to support undocumented students, staff and faculty. If you are or someone close to you is undocumented or have DACA or temporary protected status, please know that there are many things you can do before March. The following link provides practical steps you can take as well as connections to NYU immigrant defense initiative which can help with legal advice and referrals (http://as.nyu.edu/anthropology/undergraduate/resources/daca-students.html). NYU provides additional information and resources for students here. We want to remind you during these disconcerting times that you are a valued member of our community.
Undergraduates! There is an upcoming Fall internship opportunity with the American Museum of Natural History. Please download the information flyer for further details.
From the AMNH:
“The Public Programs division of the museum organizes lectures, workshops, festivals and film screenings related to the museum’s temporary and permanent exhibits. Interns will have the opportunity to work on projects related to both the Margaret Mead Film Festival and other public programs.
The Margaret Mead Film Festival is the longest-running showcase for international documentaries in the United States, encompassing a broad spectrum of work from indigenous community media to experimental nonfiction. The festival is distinguished by its outstanding selection of titles, which tackle diverse and challenging subjects, representing a range of issues and perspectives, and by the forums for discussion with filmmakers and speakers.
Interns are critical to our operations and we are currently seeking motivated and creative individuals to work with us. This internship enables interns to learn about public programs and film festival production, museum operations, and outreach strategies. We require our interns to work at least 2 whole days per week (10:00-5:00 pm, M-F) plus assist with 4 evening and/or weekend programs per month. Although this is an unpaid internship, many of our past interns have received payment or credit through work-study or academic credit programs offered by their universities.”
