James Rubino Receives CEL Humanities Based Academic Internship Funding
James Rubino has been selected to receive a CEL Humanities Based Academic Internship Funding for the Fall 2019 semester. He is a Sophomore and is currently a double History and Premed major. As part of a highly competitive process, he was able to stand out due to his commitment to high impact learning through his academic internship and coursework.
The funding will support his internship in working with microfilm copies from the original court office (employment) ledgers and recording select positions to create a new database. The positions in question are any art (non-musical), craft, mercantile, or out of the ordinary positions. He has managed to cover the years 1660 to 1714, so far.
"...I very much look forward to continuing this," James said of the internship, "It's not only a great opportunity to test my organization skills, but also to improve my ability to analyze and understand primary sources".
