Summer Interns

AAA Summer Interns

In the summer of 2017, AAA had the honor of welcoming two new interns to Washington, DC.

Karina Nogueras is a member of the class of 2018 at the University of Central Florida. Her interests in underwater archaeology and forensic anthropology (and SCUBA certification) made her a natural fit to complete her internship with the Naval History and Heritage Command’s Underwater Archaeology Branch. Prior to serving as an intern with the AAA, Karina was a volunteer with the Florida Public Archaeology Network and treasurer of the UCF chapter of the Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society.

Palmyra Jackson graduated from Seattle University in June, 2017 with a degree in anthropology. Prior to her time as a AAA intern, Palmyra was an intern and researcher with Vanastree, working with a women-run seed-saving collective in Karnataka, India. Palmyra also interned with Black Dot, a community and resource center for black entrepreneurs. Palmyra completed her AAA internship with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art.

This program, funded entirely from member donations, will host two new interns in the summer of 2018.
