The Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities—an interdisciplinary program housed in the School of Architecture—brings together students and faculty, with an interest in cities and the built environment, through public programming, a series of undergraduate and graduate courses, and a yearly fellowship program. As we approach our 10th anniversary, we are looking to produce a publication marking and promoting the work of the initiative, as well as to improve and expand our communications more broadly. The primary work of the interns will be researching and writing a roughly 15-page illustrated document that chronicles the work and impact of the Princeton-Mellon Initiative. Students working on the project will conduct research about the initiative (as well as partner programs), find data and images related to its work, write narratives about the program, and learn how to use software to lay out and publish the final document.
