Robbie Davis-Floyd offers live-in internships to interested students. The purpose of the internship can range from an introduction to the Anthropology of Reproduction to writing up your Master’s thesis or PhD dissertation, or article or book, with Robbie’s help. The internship could be designed as an Independent Study course for which you could get credit from your own university; it can also be used as a “writer’s retreat.” In return for her assistance with your project, Robbie will ask you at times to help with certain aspects of her own work, such as tape transcription or perhaps conducting interviews. Interns can also come to conduct fieldwork in Austin, where we have a rich variety of midwives and medical centers. The length of the internship can vary from some weeks to some months. If you are interested please contact Robbie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
