The Alice Paul Center is hiring a Graduate Student Research Associate to help develop a new initiative: The APC Trans, Non-binary and Gender Nonconforming Oral History Archive. This community-campus partnership aims to center the voices of trans people by systematically recording their stories, as well as those of the people closest to them using oral history methods. The unique archive created by these histories will capture a historic and transformative moment in gender identity, embodiment and experience, and provide a valuable resource for scholars and the community.
The position is for approximately 5 hours/week, with the opportunity for additional hours throughout the 2019-2020 academic year. Responsibilities include developing orientation materials for a community advisory committee and for staff training, as well as participant recruitment and interviewing, and online resources development. The Research Assistant must have experience with and/or training in academic research, as well as ties within TNBGN communities.
To apply, submit the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org: 1) a letter outlining your relevant experience and interest in the Archive; 2) a resume or curriculum vitae; and 3) the name and contact information of two references (at least one from the academy). Questions can be sent to the same email address. Applications review is ongoing.
