The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) has different centers within the Museum that provide an innovative approach to community outreach and engagement, providing opportunities to expand on topics beyond the Museum’s permanent exhibitions. The Centers also enable the Museum to reach global audiences through increased digital access to our collection, research, and scholarly work. The Center for the Study of Global Slavery (CSGS) reveals the scope and international impact of the historical slave trade and recognizes the resilience of people of African descent throughout the African diaspora in resistance to slavery. Through international, innovative, interdisciplinary collaboration the CSGS promotes, expands and changes both the research and practices of museums and other public humanities institutions around the history and afterlives of racial slavery and the global slave trade.
This position is located in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), Office of Curatorial Affairs, centered in the Center for the Study of Global Slavery (CSGS). The incumbent will be responsible for ensuring timely operation and organization of CSGS projects (Slave Wrecks Project (SWP) and the Global Curatorial Project (GCP)) and initiatives of the Center.
