HGRC hosts Indyana Horobin under HURIP
Indyana Horobin was awarded a research internship by the School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science (HLSS) as part of the 2019-2020 Humanities Undergraduate Research Intern Program (HURIP), and completed a short-term internship with the Harry Gentle Resource Centre (HGRC) which is affiliated with the Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research (GCSCR).
Internships provide recent graduates of HLSS Bachelor and Honours degrees with an opportunity to work with academic staff as a Research Assistant, to gain professional research experience in the Humanities, Languages and Social Sciences and to develop core skills for future employment and research.
During his short period working for the Centre, Indyana made a valuable contribution to the HGRC project through his submission of 60 well researched biographies of female convicts at Moreton Bay Penal Colony.
We wish Indyana all the best for his future endeavours.
