University Libraries Welcome Summer Interns

University Libraries are happy to announce that Washington University students Christian Beauchamp, Nya Hardaway, and Misael de la Rosa will serve as summer interns. The purpose of the Libraries’ internship program, which runs from June 4 to July 27, is to help students expand their knowledge of and interest in academic librarianship as a possible career.


Intern Christian Beauchamp is a rising senior majoring in anthropology with a concentration in global health and the environment. He also has an interest in public health and epidemiology. Christian’s hobbies include reading, watching movies and online shopping.


Misael  de la Rosa is a rising senior double majoring in comparative literature and Spanish. A Chicano from the border towns of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, he is interested in Chicano literature, especially poetry. That interest has led him to develop a Mellon Mays project that seeks to understand how code-switching in Chicano poetry works as a space of cultural translation. Misael is also working on a Spanish-English bilingual novel.

A sophomore from Cleveland, Ohio, Nya Hardaway is double majoring in African and African American studies and psychology-neuroscience-philosophy with a minor in women, gender, and sexuality studies. Her research focuses on the performance of sexuality of black women through popular entertainment. Nya is a City Faces mentor and executive co-coordinator, a tutor at Partners in East St. Louis, and a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Research Fellow.
