The Slavery North Institute, a one-of-a-kind academic and cultural destination at the University of Massachusetts Amherst is currently seeking an Events & Media Relations Manager who will
be charged with managing Slavery North’s image and developing strategies to increase awareness by cultivating strong relations with media outlets.
The Manager will be responsible for social outreach and the management, planning, and execution of a media strategy; as well as organizing and managing all facets of the events for the Institute. Slavery North is a destination where scholars, thinkers, artists, and cultural producers build community and produce research and cultural outcomes that transform our understanding of the neglected histories of Transatlantic Slavery in Canada and the US North. Slavery North seeks to advance social justice by recuperating and interrogating the complex histories of Transatlantic Slavery and European colonization of the Americas, thereby recovering and centering the cultures, experiences, lives, and resistance of enslaved peoples in Canada and the US North. At the heart of Slavery North is a fellowship program that will welcome national and international students, artists, and scholars, providing them with the space, funding, time, and community to produce transformative research outcomes.
