Job Description Summary
The Free State Slavery and Bound Labor Project of the Penn Carey Law School and the History Department of the University of Pennsylvania is currently seeking a temporary part-time archivist, starting in mid-August or early September, and continuing throughout the 2022-23 academic year. The archivist will be responsible for working with digital sources, including statutes, caselaw, correspondence, and newspaper stories, among others. The period covered by the project runs from the late revolutionary era (about 1780) through the end of the Civil War (1865). The project is co-directed by Kathleen Brown and Sarah Barringer Gordon, with support from the Price Lab, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the McNeil Center for Early American Studies, and other local and regional archives and scholarly groups.

Job Description

The archivist will be part of a team that will design the project website, create a metadata template for managing sources, and assembling supporting materials, such as a glossary of nineteenth-century legal terms, research and outreach for collection of additional sources, and on occasion answering students' questions.

Vision

 

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 

 

Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact. 

 

Learn about the signature initiatives of the Penn Compact 2022:  

 

Diversity 

 

Understanding and appreciating diversity is one of Penn's most important priorities and is fundamental to success in today's world. 

 

Penn adheres to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
