Economic Research and History Communications Intern
Clare Kemmerer served as an EGC Communications Intern 2021-22 as she pursued a Master of Arts in Religion (M.A.R.) in the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, concentrating in the study of visual arts and material culture. She spent the year working on the EGC History Archive and writing profiles of EGC faculty members, including Diana van Patten, Giovanni Maggi, and José Antonio Espín-Sánchez. Clare will spend the summer at the University of Heidelberg as a Baden-Wurttemberg foundation fellow, before continuing to Johns Hopkins University in the fall to pursue a PhD in the History of Art.
Clare didn't have extensive economics experience when she applied for the internship, but the minute I read her writing sample, I knew we needed to hire her. In the year since, she has used the clarity and subtlety she developed in writing about Art History and applied it to the research of social scientists – particularly members of EGC's Economic History program. She has really helped build our portfolio of articles, and we'll miss her a lot! – Vestal McIntyre, Senior Staff Writer and Communications Specialist
