I’m really excited to share news that I’m currently recruiting for the position of Research Coordinator for Archiving the 8th!
This is a part-time (0.5FTE), temporary postdoctoral position in the School of Art History & Cultural Policy at UCD, from December 2020 until 31 August 2021, working with me to support, develop, and extend the activities of the Archiving the 8th Network, funded by the Wellcome Trust. The role of the Research Coordinator will be to consolidate and develop research resources, especially a new Archiving the 8th website, working primarily online and remotely. The candidate will also be collaborating with allied research project Digital Preservation of Reproductive Health Resources: Archiving the 8th (TCD/DRI/Irish Qualitative Data Archive), also funded by the Wellcome Trust.
The purpose of the Archiving the 8th Network is to support and coordinate nationwide efforts to archive, collect, and research the 8th Amendment referendum and related outputs concerning women’s reproductive health and rights. These include collections and research on political ephemera, organisational records, websites and digital material, photography, visual and material culture, and oral histories.
This is a flexible position that can be adapted to the candidate’s research/work schedule, and is ideally suited for an experienced researcher (with a PhD) with an interest and/or experience in activism, women’s rights and/or collections, archiving, and public history.
