IPUP provides a platform for students to translate their research and writing skills into a form of public output, working with our partners in the museum, heritage and media sectors. With the launch of the Public History MA IPUP has developed this programme to include Public History Placements for the course, and Public History summer internships for a wider body of history postgraduate students. For more information on current opportunities for students, click here.
Partner organisations currently associated with IPUP include: the National Trust, York Museums Trust (Yorkshire Museum, Castle Museum, York Art Gallery), Fairfax House, York Minster, the National Railway Museum, Mansion House (City of York), York Archaeological Trust, Hardwick Hall (Conversion Narratives Project, York), the Borthwick Institute for Archives, the Centre for Christianity and Culture (York) and Wingspan Productions.
IPUP interns have also worked on a range of TV and film projects for the BBC, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, and the National Geographic.
A recent high profile project was the launch of several History Trails around York, researched and devised by IPUP interns working with York Museums Trust and the City Archaeologist. See the resulting leaflets, scripts and podcasts on IPUP's Projects-York webpages :
