My name is Julene, and I am the archivist intern for the fall 2010 semester at the Institute of Cultual Inquiry.
I am an undergraduate concentrating in Social Studies, with a special focus in Political and Cultural Trends in Contemporary America.
When people ask me what kind of career field I’d like to enter, I usually tell them that I want to a find a job where I get to ask a lot of different questions of a lot of different people.
I was drawn to the Institute of Cultural Inquiry because of its apparent interdisciplinary engagement across many different types of fields. The Institute seems to a place in which a person can make frenetic connections amongst different works, images, and ideas. Ideally, however, I hope to observe the archive and its contents, and watch the connections reveal themselves.
I am excited to become further acquainted with the archive, and I am excited to learn from my experiences here.
