This project inquiries into the post-urban renewal landscapes of the American Midwest, particularly the plazas, fountains, and parks created to rejuvenate urban riverfronts and city centers in the face of declining residential populations, deindustrialization, and the growing civil rights movement. I seek a research apprentice to obtain literature on relevant sites in the architectural and popular presses, to identify and locate living members of the projects’ design teams, and to locate and request archival material related to their history. Applicants should have an interest in architectural and urban history, have experience with library research, and maintain organized, detailed records.
Seeking a research assistant to aid in a project examining the cybersecurity policymaking process in South Korea by reading and summarizing materials written in Korean.
· Working with me to identify promising Korean-language documents.
· Reading and summarizing those documents.
Knowledge of both Korean and English is required (nativeKorean and good English, or excellent Korean and good English). Because I do not read Korean, the applicant must be confident in their ability to summarize documents on their own. An interest in cybersecurity, politics, or public policy would be a plus; however, no previous knowledge of these subjects is required.

I seek a Research Apprentice to assist with preparing my book manuscript for publication. Racing the Great White Way examines theatre’s centrality as a key cultural negotiator of identity, shaping attitudes toward citizenship, race, sexuality, and urbanization during the early twentieth century. Racing the Great White Way shows how theatre (and, by extension, cultural practice) was changed by EugeneO’Neill’s plays as they were “raced” by actors of color, moved to alternate venues, and altered through performance choices and dramaturgical pairings. Applicants need to be able to conduct research, have a keen editorial eye, be organized, and self-driven.
