Scholarship/Fellowhip Opportunities

Corporate Relations Intern with Latin America Advisor Newsletters for Summer 2007
The Inter-American Dialogue Corporate Program is offering a full or part-time volunteer internship.  The individual will be involved with corporate outreach and recruitment, and should have a familiarity with business, economic and political issues, specifically relating to Latin America.

Responsibilities:  The corporate relations intern would assist the General Manager, Publishing in reaching out to and servicing current and prospective members of our Corporate Program, and subscribers to the Dialogue’s family of Latin America Advisor newsletter titles.  Focusing on the Western Hemisphere’s most pressing economic, political and financial issues, the Corporate Program's publications and events are targeted to informed CEOs and leaders with significant business interests in Latin America. Specific responsibilities would include: Researching prospective member corporations; reaching out to business leaders via emails and phone calls about their interests in the region; preparing recruitment campaigns, marketing letters and creatives; assisting with the Dialogue's corporate program and newsletter sales tactics and strategies, as well as renewals; and maintaining contact information in the Dialogue’s database.

Qualifications: The corporate relations intern could be an undergraduate or graduate student, majoring in either business or the social sciences.  Candidates should demonstrate an interest in
international business and Latin American business/policy issues. Strong internet and database skills and proficiency in Spanish or Portuguese would be a plus.

All internships at the Dialogue are unpaid, and summer internships are usually full-time.

The Inter-American Dialogue is a forum for sustained exchange among leaders of the Western Hemisphere and an independent, nonpartisan center for policy analysis on economic and political relations in the Americas. It regularly convenes U.S. and Latin American leaders from the public and private sectors and diverse political perspectives to search for cooperative responses to hemispheric problems. Covering a wide scope of issues, it is engaged in an ambitious effort to improve the quality of debate and decision making on U.S.-Latin American relations and to promote new opportunities for hemispheric political, social, and economic cooperation.

To apply: Please submit a cover letter, resume, brief writing sample (1-2 pages) and one letter of recommendation to:

SummerHill Seven Akbar will be offering the following course this summer
Term:   2007 Summer (2075)
Year:   2006 - 2007
College:   AS
Department: THEA
Course #:   THEA367010

Credit Hours: 3 Hrs
Open Seats: 14 OF 15    (notes)
Mtg. Info:   LEC MW 11:30am-3:00pm

Today’s hip-hop theatre movement is as American as apple pie; yet its roots are fundamentally African.  This course will explore the distinctions of hip-hop theatre through in-class readings from scripts; student presentations; guest lecturers; film adaptations of plays; and discussions about the readings/lectures/films. Further, the course will highlight materials which both influence and represent the current hip-hop theatre movement.  We will examine plays written in the period since the post-Civil Rights Era up through and including the 2006 Hip-Hop Theatre Festival.

Students interested in any aspect of American theatre, performance, contemporary cultural movements and/or ethnic studies would benefit from this course.  Students will be required to keep a journal that they submit online at both the mid-term and the conclusion of the course.  Students will be required to prepare either a monologue or a scene to be presented in class.  The final examination will consist of a presentation of a scene/monologue before the entire class and invited guests.
