Associate in the Technologies of the Public Humanities

Position available at the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public 
Humanities and Cultural Heritage

Research Associate / Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Technologies 
of the Public Humanities

The John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural 
Heritage at Brown University has an opening for a research associate in 
the technologies of the public humanities. We're looking for a person 
with experience in the use of technologies in museums, documentation, 
and the web, and with new ideas about how humanities scholars and the 
public might communicate using technologies in innovative ways. Help us 
answer questions including: What are the most successful digital 
humanities projects, and why? What does the field need?  What should 
students in the public humanities know about technology? What 
technologies should be available for faculty and students interested in 
outreach to a public and in opening conversations with communities?

The research associate position is available for one or two semesters, 
starting in July 2009, and may be extended. The research associate will 
be expected to organize at least one public program during their tenure, 
as well as to conduct research and participate in the activities of the 
John Nicholas Brown Center. Among the outcomes of the position might be: 
a conference on the topic; a series of workshops for universities, 
museums and cultural organizations; a course for Brown students; an 
exhibition space designed to allow experimentation with new 
technologies; new web tools for the public humanities; or a grant 
proposal outlining a new digital humanities initiative.

We welcome proposals for this position. The ideal applicant will have 
expertise and prior experience working in the technology of public 
humanities, and an interest in working within an interdisciplinary and 
public context. A Ph.D. is preferred but not required. Please respond by 
January 31, 2009, with a c.v. and a 3-5 page proposal outlining your 
ideas for your tenure in the position.
