Project Description

Libya possesses an impressive collection of archaeological treasures. While other areas, such as Syria and Iraq, have the world’s attention on their cultural heritage, few are aware of Libya’s treasures. We seek an intern to develop, and implement, a plan to form a virtual community of people—both professional and non—with interest in Libya’s cultural heritage. The intern will reach out to appropriate professionals, academics, journalists, etc. to form a network, develop a social media site for shared communication, and generate content of interest to the network on the status of Libyan archaeological treasures.
