justin20singh.jpgQAHN and Concordia University's Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS) have entered into an agreement whereby the two organizations will jointly administer a student intern for the next six months. Justin Singh, the intern, will concentrate on producing new content for both QAHN's new digital mapping platform, Mapping the Mosaic: Montreal & Its Diverse Neighbourhoods (content drawn from work underway at COHDS, Concordia, and elsewhere) and QAHN's quarterly print publication, Quebec Heritage News.

Justin will be based at COHDS where he will have access to a computer workstation. His presence in the Centre will assist with his story ideas, and the identification of online content. He will report to QAHN's Rod MacLeod, Chair of the Montreal Committee, attending meetings of the Committee when possible. He will also be invited to attend occasional workshops at COHDS as part of his internship hours.

Justin is a second-year undergraduate student in the Honours Public History program at Concordia University, and has a BA in Psychology from McGill University. His interests lie primarily in storytelling and how ‘big’ history is presented at the local level, through oral history, museums and public projects. Previous work within the History program include an examination of Montreal’s sport culture and the designing of a museum exhibition on art and propaganda. His experiences, both in History and Psychology, have developed his skills in conducting interviews, research and analysis, writing, and curatorial practices.
