Humanities and Social Science Consultants for the 2020 Precious Places Community History Project – Mar 1

Posted by Scribe Video Center on February 25, 2020
Scribe Video Center, non-profit media arts education organization, is seeking faculty members in the humanities and social sciences, as well as advanced graduate students in the humanities/social sciences to work with community groups participating in the Precious Places Community History Project.
The Precious Places Community History Project is a community oral history project inviting members of Philadelphia’s many neighborhoods to document the buildings, public spaces, parks, landmarks and other sites that hold the memories of our communities and define where we live. Unlike oral history projects in other cities, Precious Places teaches the video production process to participating groups, fostering projects authored by those who intimately know the featured neighborhoods. Research and production will be carried out by neighborhood residents in each group with the help of a humanities/social science scholar and an experienced filmmaker. Participating humanities and social science consultants will meet about three times a month for three months with the groups, guide the group through one day of primary shooting, and also consult on occasion during the editing. Generally, we estimate up to 75 hours in total over a six month period beginning in April 2020.
Participating humanities and social science consultants receive an honorarium.
