The Story Experience Program

This program brings UWM and Marquette students into year-long partnership with Milwaukee-based organizations to facilitate storying in a range of forms from oral history to poetry and story-circles.  

Students learn myriad skills including facilitating group and individual storytelling, mapping and building on assets of organizations, organizing and storing story data, time management, and interviewing. Organizations and their members work with the student teams to design projects according to their own goals. If desired, the culminating project can be collected into a public archive of Milwaukee stories.  

This is a unique opportunity for deep experiential learning and relationship building, putting humanities and arts skills into practice to build community. Students gain invaluable work/life skills and experiences.  

Applications for the 2023-2024 school year are taken on a rolling basis, with priority of placement given to students who apply by March 31st.

Graduate Fellows

The Center for 21st Century Studies (C21) appoints graduate student fellows each academic year. This position is open to students at the master’s or doctoral level. Working at C21 provides graduate students the opportunity to meet visiting scholars, attend C21 events, and help with outreach and research initiatives.

Please prepare to submit the following:

  • a one-page cover letter that outlines your interest in the position, what your relevant experience is, and how the position connects to your research and professional interests
  • a curriculum vitae
  • names and contact information for two faculty references

Please refer to this document for more details about the position: Call for Grad Fellows 22-23 

Applications are closed for the 2022-2023 Academic Year.

Summer Fellows

In contrast to our regular Graduate Fellow appointments, we offer summer fellowships. Summer fellowships are more project-oriented, providing career experience opportunities to students in the humanities, social sciences, and library and information sciences. Past summer fellows have focused on curatorial and archival projects.

Applications for Summer 2023 are due March 15th, 2023.
