History’s Sutton Interns at U.S. Embassy in Madrid

For 10 weeks during the 2018 summer, Jen Sutton, M.A. student in the History Department, interned at the U.S. Embassy Madrid in the Economic section.

A significant part of Sutton’s internship was spent providing administrative assistance for official events including IN3, a premier entrepreneur and investment event held in Spain in October. She also helped prepare papers for Ambassador Duke Buchan III on economic issues, conducted research, and drafted cables.

The embassy internship offered Sutton the opportunity to attend several conferences, including a meeting at the headquarters of the Spanish national soccer league, La Liga. As part of the embassy’s mission to advance U.S. interests and promote relations between the governments and people of the United States and Spain, Sutton attended various meetings with the National Police, the Ministry of Culture and Sports, Spanish Customs, and right’s holders organizations.

She also had the opportunity to attend official events related to the U.S. Embassy Madrid, including the embassy’s Fourth of July party and an INreception held at the U.S. ambassador’s residence.

In her second year of the M.A. in History program at Ohio University, Sutton is studying under the directorship of Dr. Chester Pach, Associate Professor of History.
