Summer Undergraduate Interns Explore the Past and Engage With the Public

Undergraduate interns are hard at work diving deep into the stuff of history and sharing information with the public. Grace Furie and Aidan Kyle are immersed in Dr. Robert Bucholz’s Database of Court Officers.  Furie, as she is known, is in pursuit of members of the court  who moved from the position of Royal Chaplain to Bishop.  Aidan is looking through the database  index, noting which names appear in other online databases.  The goal of his work is to make it easier for Dr. Bucholz to find biographies of this court officials. Melina Testin  is interning at the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library. Melina is researching the lives of artists featured in the Museum’s exhibit Artists as Activists. Read her first entry: https://www.ncsml.org/artists-as-activists-spotlight-david-cerny/.  Enjoy learning about activism and art  and Melina’s artwork that is part of the blog post.
