Dear readers, we wanted to let you know that Texas Christian University and its partner institutions are looking for research assistants for an oral history project exploring African American and Latino history in Texas. It’s a paid opportunity that will take place over the summer.
Research Assistants (RAs) will be assigned to selected field sites in Texas for eight weeks of full-time oral history fieldwork. With assistance from the project directors, RAs will contact gatekeepers, consultants, and community leaders and then interview a wide range of activists who contributed to the black and brown freedom struggles (broadly defined) in their respective cities. RAs will also manage and process digital video interview data to add the project website. Work will begin with a two-day training and workshop at TCU on June 2-3, 2016; will continue with fieldwork taking place June 6 to July 30 (including a retreat around the 4th of July); and conclude with a two-day wrap-up meeting and data processing at TCU on August 1-2, 2016.
