In consultation with the Director of the Center for Folklore Studies, the scholar will develop plans for enhancing public accessibility to archival collections, preserving the collection, and connecting the collection to other local repositories and organizations interested in cultural documentation. Collaborating with faculty in the Center for Folklore Studies and the Humanities Institute, the scholar will help to organize a series of presentations that inform and engage campus and community members as to the importance of archives of everyday life and vernacular practice.

Working with the Humanities Institute faculty and staff, the postdoctoral scholar will help to develop institutional capacity for career-diversity programming, including helping to organize graduate student events for the Center for the Humanities in Practice during the 2021/22 academic year.  The scholar would also participate in planning for the Humanities without Walls Faculty-Staff Institute in Milwaukee in Summer 2022, building the network of faculty/staff stakeholders, and identifying potential community and university partners across the state.


Additional support will be provided in the form of reimbursable relocation expenses, up to $2000, and a $1,000 research fund (to be used during the duration of the position). The $1,000 research fund may be used for travel to professional conferences, research-related travel, materials and supplies, books, courses, or workshops related to research.  

This position will be located on the Columbus Campus of The Ohio State University, under the supervision of the Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme,  Humanities Institute, and Center for Folklore Studies. Appointment will be for the period August 15, 2021 through August 14, 2022, with full-time base salary of $55,000 for the year plus benefits.
