Ukiyoe Research Internship

Students meet with Dr. Eubanks and Palmer Museum staff in the first week of the semester for an orientation. They then select 5-6 woodblock prints from the Museum's collection to research thoroughly, creating a 3-5 page written description for each. The internship gives students an opportunity to polish critical writing skills, learn art preservation and handling techniques, and work with library and museum staff with critical materials. Students earn 3 credits (LA 495).

This opportunity is available during fall and spring semesters.
