Research Assistant Position for Spanish Speaker

This project studies the representation of Mexican indigenous “informants,” collaborators, and authors in their own right during the twentieth century in anthropological and linguistic research (specifically related to Nahua culture, Nahuas being native speakers of Nahuatl – language of the Aztecs and more than 1.5 million people today). For the majority of the twentieth century many of the indigenous people who provided the information for academic studies were seen as sources of raw data that the “intellectual” academician would then analyze and interpret. In reframing indigenous peoples as intellectuals in their own right,  I argue for an expanded understanding of indigenous intellectualism addresses both the tensions and complementary nature of oral and written modes of creating and transmitting oral and written indigenous knowledges. At the same time, with this approach as example, I advocate for a return to early twentieth-century anthropological and linguistic studies in order to tease out and recover voices of indigenous intellectuals that can and should inform contemporary studies of Nahua culture.

I need assistance with downloading all of the 42 volumes of the journal Estudios de Cultura Nahuatl, coding essays for general topics, and assessing how the indigenous person who provided the source material (usually called an informant or collaborator, but sometimes author) is recognized in the essays.

Qualifications: 

Required: Advanced proficiency in Spanish; knowledge of Word and Excel.

Preferred: Interest in Indigenous Studies

Time Commitment: Negotiable

Begins: As soon as possible

Duration: 2-4 months

Compensation: Credit in the acknowledgments of the completed article

The sponsor of this project is available for weekly meetings in person or via Skype
