AASLH Learning: Live Webinar: 250th Anniversary and African American Museums: A Listening Session

TUESDAY, AUGUST 18
Live Webinar
3:00 PM (EDT)

How should the community of African American museums and other history organizations engage with the upcoming commemoration of the United States 250th anniversary? We want to hear from you! The event is free.

https://458rl1jp.r.us-east-1.awstrack.me/L0/https:%2F%2Flearn.aaslh.org%2Fproducts%2Flive-webinar-250th-anniversary-and-african-american-museums-a-listening-session/2/01000173e93ff80c-5be593f1-5285-40ed-a1e3-eb0244e0e168-000000/T2l7HH8_VWPvi0nWRscN5f2XcN8=175

As U.S. history organizations advance plans for “America 250,” AASLH is partnering with the Association of African American Museums (AAAM) and the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) for this listening session, offering an opportunity for participants to learn more about commemoration planning and to share ideas about what role African American history institutions could play. The U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission released its extensive planning report recently, which explains some of the ways that cultural institutions in every state and territory will be involved, how state commissions will participate, and what the likely connections will be to federal agencies such as the National Park Service, NEH, the Smithsonian, and the National Archives. How can this anniversary enable African American museums to advance more inclusive, more honest stories about our nation's past? What role should African American institutions and museum professionals play to ensure commemoration programming reflects the diversity of our nation and our communities? What opportunities might the 250th present to advance broad, structural shifts in how American history is interpreted and shared with public audiences? Register here.

In our inaugural AIM to Connect, we will look at how we can recover from the past few months. The stresses of quickly shuttering our doors, reopening, and adjusting our plans for the umpteenth time present unique challenges for museum professionals. Take some time for yourself and laugh with others who understand those stresses as we share stories of adapting, coping, and moving forward in the unknown.

The salary for this Administrative Faculty position is commensurate with experience with no benefits. The JMM is a dynamic college museum focused on forging meaningful connections among community members and supporting exploration and application of scholarly knowledge to topics of importance to society. Our museum is largely student-run, where faculty provide support, training, and mentorship for students who are learning to be tour leaders, researchers and collections specialists. We strive to create engaging community programs and exhibits that combine the strengths of our college natural history and ethnographic collections, planetarium, scholarly research of Earlham College faculty, and the passions of our three museum faculty and ~40 undergraduate student staff. First publicly opened in 1887, the JMM has long been known as the region’s natural history museum and is located in Richmond, Indiana on the campus of Earlham College. Primary Duties & Responsibilities Supervise, train and mentor Earlham College undergraduate student staff in outreach (i.e. interacting with the public through tours, events, and museum hosting during open hours). The majority of the coordinator’s work is supporting students who engage with the community. Plan and implement community educational programs for the Joseph Moore Museum in line with the museum’s mission and vision, including designing, scheduling, staffing/leading, publicizing and promoting educational tours that meet state standards throughout the school year and in summer. Plan and implement special events to connect Earlham community members with each other and the broader Wayne County community around topics of importance to science and society. Must be available on evenings and weekends to oversee events. Assist with exhibits, including maintenance, refurbishment and design. Prepare an annual report documenting and critiquing community engagement at JMM. This includes keeping daily statistics on program attendance and student tour leader performance. Assist with fundraising for community engagement. Assist with developing and implementing an Outreach and Education Plan for JMM. Experience & Qualifications Minimum Qualifications A bachelor’s degree, preferably in education with a scientific focus. Previous experience in leading educational programming for children pre-k-12th grade. Previous experience as a supervisor. Certified Interpretive Guide through NAI, or available and willing to complete training September 20 to 25 and have personal transportation during that time period. Key Attributes Either a degree in a scientific field or substantial experience leading science or nature programs for children. Ability to supervise, mentor and organize college students. Dedication to working enthusiastically as part of a team of faculty and students. Ability to connect with people of diverse ages and backgrounds. Excellent written and verbal communication skills. Excellent attention to detail, logistics and daily planning. Ability to work independently. Strong commitment to community engagement. Passion for communicating science. Flexibility to work in a fast-paced environment. Application Instructions Please send a cover letter detailing qualifications for the position, CV, a list of at least three professional references, and a detailed sample plan for a science or nature-based elementary school tour as a single electronic file to: [email protected]. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact JMM Director, Heather Lerner, at 765-983-1402 or [email protected]. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Position will begin as early as possible, preferably prior to September 25, 2017. Earlham College continues to build a community that reflects the gender and racial diversity of the society at large, and, therefore, we are particularly interested in inviting and encouraging applications from African Americans, other ethnic minorities, and women. Earlham also is eager to solicit applications from members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). Earlham College is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Earlham utilizes E-Verify to confirm employment eligibility for all newly hired employees within the United States.
