in PUBLIC HUMANITIES
Call for Bloggers: Join the MARCH Team!
Call for Bloggers: The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers-Camden seeks bloggers on issues and trends in public humanities. Since the inception of the MARCH website, bloggers have written on such diverse topics as living history, copyright law, project management, and the viability of digitization and digital history projects.
Desired blog themes include (but are not limited to): civic engagement and shared authority; digital humanities, including reviews of innovative digital tools and/or projects; concerns of emerging professionals; new books about Mid-Atlantic history and culture; and public humanities in New York (city and/or state). Ideal candidates will have demonstrable expertise in their proposed topics and be committed to posting at least once per month, for a modest honorarium. The scope of coverage for MARCH is the region encompassing New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
If interested, please respond by November 2 with an email (no attachments please) describing the scope of your proposed blog and briefly summarizing your credentials. Finalists will be asked at a later date to submit a sample post and resume. Send expressions of interest and questions to Mandi Magnuson-Hung, Digital Media Coordinator, Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers-Camden, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
