Madeline Snipes is the Research and Instructional Services Humanities Intern. She graduated from Duke in 2017 with a B.A. in Medieval and Renaissance Studies. As a student, she worked at the Rubenstein Library, and continues to do freelance research in their archival collections. She is currently in the Masters in Information Science program at UNC-Chapel Hill, and hopes to become a humanities subject librarian. She enjoys learning languages, having taken courses in Spanish, Russian, and ancient Greek, and is beginning French and Czech.

Madeline is originally from Fishers, Indiana. She has lived in Chapel Hill since her last semester at Duke, when she moved off campus so she could get two German Shepherd sisters — Rosa and Pocahontas. They spend most of their time lying on her bed looking pathetic while she reads – young adult, fantasy, science fiction, media studies, higher education, contemporary politics, feminism — or plays Dragon Age
