Please note: Native American and Indigenous candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Center for Black, Brown, and Queer Studies (BBQ+) is an independent Center dedicated to interdisciplinary research, pedagogy, and mentorship in critical race, Indigenous, postcolonial, and queer studies. We seek to appoint two 1-year postdoctoral fellows to contribute to the Boarding School Education History Project. Fellows will work with co-principal investigators Drs. Eli Nelson and Elizabeth Rule to create a critical meta-archive documenting and deconstructing the impacts of boarding school education on Indigenous intellectual history and futurity. Fellows will work closely with the BBQ+ library on setting the organization and scope of the online collection and will have the opportunity to experiment with different ways of sharing and protecting Indigenous knowledge. Depending on their interests, fellows will also be expected to digitize archival material, conduct oral histories, and work with Indigenous libraries and collections.

Postdoctoral Fellows will have the opportunity to shape the scope and focus of the archive based on their own research interests and community obligations. Areas of expertise are open, but in addition to training in Native American and Indigenous Studies, candidates who specialize in the following areas are especially encouraged to apply: Indigenous geography, digital humanities, traditional ecological knowledge and Native science, intellectual history, and library and museum studies. PhD should be in hand by September 2022. Native American and Indigenous candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.
