The Center for Asian Studies is pleased to accept applications for our internship at Rowman & Littlefield Publishers. While receiving two credit hours in Asian Studies, students will be introduced to the fascinating world of publishing. This is one of the few internships offered by CU that has an explicit focus on Asia, though the intern will be engaged with projects pertaining to other areas as well. Applications are due on Wednesday, September 3. Please send a cover letter, resume, and transcript to cas@colorado.edu with subject "Rowman & Littlefield internship." Contact Danielle Rocheleau Salaz at cas@colorado.edu or 303-735-5312 with questions.

Rowman & Littlefield is a leading independent academic press located in Boulder that is committed to publishing enduring works of scholarship, serious trade books, and upper-division classroom texts across the social sciences.

The intern will assist the History, International Studies, and Geography acquisitions group with a variety of tasks, including contacting scholars for endorsements and reviews, online research, and data entry. The intern will also have an opportunity to learn about the big picture of academic publishing by attending editorial board meetings, editorial planning meetings, and the like.

The internship will begin the first week of classes and will run through the last week before finals. It will require six hours per week for a total of 90 hours over the course of the semester. 

Eligibility Requirements: Open to undergraduate students majoring in Asian Studies, Chinese, or Japanese, or other disciplines such as History or International Affairs with a concentration in Asia. Applicants must have completed a minimum of 30 hours of college-level coursework with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 before the start of fall semester. Must be fluent in written and spoken English.

Applications will be reviewed by the internship supervisor at Rowman & Littlefield and finalists will be interviewed during the week of September 8. The student selected for the internship will be enrolled into the course before the add deadline during the fall semester, and will be responsible for paying tuition for the internship.
