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; 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 periodically for one year, 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 April 15 with an email (no attachments please) describing the scope of your interests 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 Christian Malatesta, Digital Media Assistant, Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers-Camden, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers-Camden:
Funded initially by a challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities at Rutgers-Camden has developed a multi-centered and highly collaborative approach that brings new vitality to humanities research, programming, training, and communication. Transcending jurisdictional as well as disciplinary boundaries, this effort aims to tap the region’s rich intellectual and cultural resources to forge new strategies for understanding and communicating the nature of the places where we live and their inheritance. We seek to make the whole of the Mid-Atlantic humanities community larger than just the sum of its parts and thus to contribute to civic revitalization.
