St. Mary’s College of Maryland is recruiting a Public Humanities Fellow to build on national attention for the College’s recently dedicated Commemorative to Enslaved Peoples of Southern Maryland by leading a one-year grant-funded project. By supporting existing humanities programming and participating in community engagement work with invested people and projects in the campus and local community, the Public Humanities Fellow will take responsibility for two central objectives: 1) creating a long-term plan for activities and public outreach related to this monument for use by the College; and 2) completing scholarly research in the humanities related to the Fellow’s expertise that bears directly on the experiences of the enslaved in the historical and contemporary American landscape. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in any field of the humanities specializing in histories of enslavement, antiracism and social justice, and/or monuments and memory and a commitment to public humanities in museums and heritage work, galleries, libraries, and archives, or other cultural and service organizations. The successful candidate should expect a November 2021 start date with compensation set at $60,000 with health care benefits.
Review of résumés will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. St. Mary’s College of Maryland is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
