Apply Now: Various Internships at Sächsische Staatskanzlei in Dresden

Being back on campus, I hope you are all enjoying the summer term so far! Between assignments, group works, reading journals and mensa pauses, I also want you to think about the time after your studies at ASL and the opportunities internships can offer during your studies. I know that this can be quite overwhelming and frightening because the field of opportunities seems so wide. But this is also a chance! The internships I have for you today also reflect this broadness quite well and are just a suggestion what you can do with an BA or MA in American Studies.


New Publication: Edited Collection “Beyond Narrative” (Open Access)
