Please join us for a talk by fellowship candidate Nora Benedict, Ph.D. candidate in Spanish at University of Virginia.
This position is a two-year Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation for Latin American and Caribbean Studies to lead day-to-day programming and digitization efforts in collaboration with Grupo de Apoyo Mutuo (GAM), located in Guatemala City, Guatemala. As Guatemala’s earliest human rights organization, GAM has a unique set of textual, visual, and audio-video materials of significance to ongoing human rights trials, scholars of transitional justice in Latin America, and Guatemala’s historical memory. This project will be a post-custodial and cooperative project in which the Fellow will provide training and expert technical assistance with the digitization and data maintenance process, advising on best practices for the digital archiving of materials and provision of access to a local and global community.
This is an open-campus talk, and we solicit and value your feedback. Please send comments to Terry Snyder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
