Food Field Notes is an online community where students will assist in bringing the voices of farmers, activists, politicians, researchers, artists, journalists and others together to talk about food. This is hands on work… and you might literally get your hands dirty.
Each intern will have different expectations because Food Field Notes will work with a person’s strengths. If you are a photographer, you’ll take pictures. If you are a writer, you might write research articles or do interviews related to a food topic. If social media is something you enjoy, you might assist with their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
One week you might be interviewing a guest speaker for a conference. The next week you might be helping video an interview at a farmer’s market. This will be an exciting and practical experience to help you understand the many nuances of food studies and also media.
