STORIES OF IM/MIGRATION:CHICAGO PROJECT

The Chicago Cultural Alliance and Chicago Collections Consortium are seeking a graduate student in education, museum studies, library & information science, or an allied field to act as a temporary, part-time facilitator to assist with phase two of an ongoing collaboration entitled Stories of Im/Migration: Chicago. During phase two, the facilitator will report to Andrew Leith and Kate Flynn. The facilitator will work with a cohort of museum professionals representing six cultural centers in Chicago. The cohort has been preparing and uploading digital collections associated with their respective communities’ stories of im/migration to the CCC’s EXPLORE Portal since March 2019. The facilitator will assist them in distilling their thoughts and perspectives related to the pedagogical potential of culturally-specific stories of im/migration as they pertain to recurrent, topical, and cross-cultural concerns faced by youth and adults across the state of Illinois. Topics may include creative ways of combatting racism, xenophobia, sexism, and injustices associated with economic disparities as well as common concerns, accomplishments, and shared values to be celebrated as Illinois residents endeavor to foster a spirit of mutual respect. Cohort members will contribute to the aforementioned themes and suggest material and constructive dialogs as they relate specifically to the content they uploaded to EXPLORE. Then the facilitator will consolidate this material into a concise and cogent document which will be referred to as the ‘dialogic toolkit.’ The dialogic toolkit will be a set of guidelines for Illinois youth and educators aimed specifically at elementary and secondary schools and libraries throughout the state. The guidelines within the toolkit will enable educators to pair the content on EXPLORE with lesson plans and stand-alone workshops associated with cultural diversity and inclusion. The toolkit will also provide educators with a series of programmatic frameworks for utilizing the EXPLORE Portal to engage diverse participants, especially youth. The availability of thoughtfully crafted first-voice programs, curriculum, and discourse templates will bring to life the rich content contributed to EXPLORE, making history more relevant, illustrating shared struggles and accomplishments, as well as our common humanity. Stipend = $2,500
