We're Hiring a Community Liaison for the APC Trans Archive

August 12, 2019

The Alice Paul Center is hiring a Community Liaison 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 17.5 hours/week through June 30, 2020 with the possibility for a one-year renewal. Compensation includes limited health and other benefits. Responsibilities include recruiting narrators to be interviewed, oral history interviewing, outreach to potential community partners, coordinating a community advisory committee, and working with student research assistants. The Community Liaison must have deep ties within TNBGN communities in Philadelphia.

To apply, submit the following information to gsws-apc@sas.upenn.edu: 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. Questions can be sent to the same email address. We will begin reviewing application on August 23rd and continue until the position is filled.
