About Partition Museum (http://www.partitionmuseum.org/):
The Partition Museum set up under the aegis of The Arts and Cultural Heritage Trust (TAACHT), is a 'People's Museum' to remember all those millions who lost their homes or loved ones at the time of the partition of the sub-continent in 1947.

The Museum opened to the public in August 1947 and receives thousands of visitors every day. The museum has received a real outpouring of support from all directions, including from partition families in Punjab/Bengal/abroad, major national and international museums and universities, researchers and authors, and particularly, from the media.

As it is a People's Museum', it contains hundreds of stories of those who actually went through the partition, therefore, a key component of setting up the museum is recording oral histories of the partition survivors and collecting information relating to that time from archival sources, literature, music, and film.
About the Internship:
Selected intern's day-to-day responsibilities include:

1. Expanding the museum's collection on the partitions of Bengal
2. Conducting oral history interviews in Bengali in New Delhi and editing interviews currently in the collection
3. Exploring archives in New Delhi and research documents in English and Bengali

What will the intern learn in this internship?

Other than developing a thorough understanding of subject-specific research, the selected interns will also learn the best practices of oral history interviewing, and archival research methodologies. They will be given training and consistent guidance through the course of their internship.
