Under the leadership of UW student Wendi Zhou, the Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies and Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety is sponsoring the Seattle COVID-19 Oral History Project (SCOHP). Over winter and spring quarters, the Project will collect the stories of local workers, especially those from marginalized communities, whose lives have been impacted by COVID-19.

We are looking to hire six to ten student interns who will administer and transcribe interviews and assist in general project operations throughout Winter and Spring 2021. Interns will be trained in oral history methods and gain knowledge of the experiences of workers in the local community. The deadline to apply is Monday, January 11, 2021 at 11:59 PM. The full position description and application form are available here.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Bridges Center Assistant Director Yasmin Ahmed at ypahmed@uw.edu
