Research Internship- Summer 2021
In the Spring of 2021, presidential historian and former White House aide Tevi Troy joined the Bipartisan Policy Center as a Senior Fellow studying the presidency. His primary project will be running a BPC conference on the changes to the presidency in the 21st century, but he also writes regularly for mainstream publications and is also in the early stages of working on a new book, which will be his fifth one on the presidency.
The conference, to be held in the fall of 2021, will look at the presidency in the 21st century. The research intern will help set up the logistics for the conference, will help Dr. Troy solicit papers for the conference from key scholars of the presidency, and help Dr. Troy research and edit his own paper for the conference. The research intern will also help Dr. Troy with research and editing for his articles and his proposed new book on the presidency, including the development of extensive research files for each of the chapters in his proposed book. The research intern will get credit in the conference notes and in the book acknowledgments for efforts made in these regards.
