Figures in the Sky Initiative Internship

Center for Astrophysics| Harvard & Smithsonian
Department: John G. Wolbach Library

The Figures in the Sky Project intern will contribute meaningfully to project development by addressing questions imperative to the initiative’s success and beginning the research required to identify, curate, and begin to create the open resources needed to facilitate learning. Throughout this internship, the FitSI intern will work with the Historian-in-Residence to determine the scope of the project- identifying/creating resources, synthesizing information for an interdisciplinary audience, and assist in planning further grant goals in addition to traditional historical research. The Figures in the Sky Initiative is an endeavor by the Wolbach Library to elevate the voices of Black and Indigenous peoples and their astronomical heritage in order to \”normalize\” their inclusion and undercut white supremacy in astronomy. To this end, the Initiative aims to connect people with resources to help them understand and appreciate different astronomical cultures, as well as meaningfully engage in conversations about how colonialism and racism have been, and continue to be, facets of astronomical pursuits.
