Brown University invites applications for a one-year Diversity in Digital Publishing Postdoctoral Research Associate appointment. As a member of Brown’s Center for Digital Scholarship, based at the University Library, the postdoctoral fellow will work as part of a multi-skilled team of experts to advance a set of public-facing faculty digital publications currently under development as part of the Mellon Foundation-supported Digital Publications Initiative. The fellow will help conceptualize, research, and administer a group of projects that relate directly to the history and experience of oppressed or marginalized peoples, are intended to engage both scholarly audiences and the wider public, and consider the political and cultural concerns of scholarly work that draws on and interprets traumatic pasts.
The Diversity in Digital Publishing Postdoctoral Research Associate will also teach one course during the academic year in digital humanities or the fellow’s home discipline. The fellow may play a role in the planning of a lecture series and other events designed to increase awareness of diverse scholarly voices. Approximately one-third of the fellowship period would be devoted to the fellow’s own digital scholarship.
