Join a network of consultants, built of people (researchers, technicians, scholars) interested and invested in the recovery of the work of women writers using digital methods. This network will include people with a variety of skills and experiences who can help those working on new and growing digital projects engage in the recovery of women’s writing. Consultants will advise projects members on what technologies can be explored, leading them to information, resources, and methods. Consultants will have a general familiarity with the digital humanities, experience with current tools and methods, and an awareness of projects that can serve as models.
Consultants will commit to working with the Hub for one year and be paid $25 per hour of consultation. Consultants will be compensated for undergoing webinar training, as well. They should expect to support a wide range of projects that approach the Recovery Hub each year and participate in monthly meetings with Recovery Hub staff. At this time, the Recovery Hub is in the planning stages, so consultants will also be asked to provide feedback on this process.
The Hub is looking for consultants from a wide range of academic backgrounds, including faculty, staff, graduate students, programmers, designers, independent scholars, etc. Committed to cultivating a community of diverse scholars as well as inclusive project content, the Hub’s Advisory Board aims for at least 50% of its affiliated projects to recover Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and LGBTQIA+ stories, texts, experiences, and voices. The work of consultants should be consistent with the principles outlined in the Recovery Hub Mission Statement.
