The Alexandria Archive Institute/Open Context is looking for a sensitivity reader for an upcoming Data Story that draws from an archaeological data set about oracle bones from East Asia. Specifically, we are looking for a sensitivity reader of East-Asian heritage with some familiarity with the history and use of oracle bones either historically or archaeologically. This is a paid opportunity with the option for credit within the final product itself.
The English-language educational materials that comprise the Data Story total about 8000 words or 28 pages single-spaced with images included. Due to the short length of the documents, we are looking for someone who can provide a 14-day turnaround, though an extension may be possible. Specifically, the Data Story is scheduled for launch in October 2022 to coincide with #ArchInk, an art event that runs annually each October to inspire a daily art practice amongst archaeologists and the public. Individuals with a strong commitment to the 14-day deadline and an interest in art and archaeology are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please respond via e-mail with a short description (<300 words) of your experience in sensitivity reading, links to previous sensitivity work, and an explanation of your qualifications for this opportunity. The pay rate for this job begins at $0.01 per word USD (based on the average rate listed here) and can increase based on experience and qualifications. For those readers who set rates hourly, we anticipate this project not exceeding 15-20 hours of work.
