As part of its continuing service to the field, Maine Archives and Museums allows members and non-members to post notices of their announcements, job and internship openings, workshops, and other news of interest to the field. MAM approves all postings and reserves the right to edit or reject postings as it deems appropriate. This service is free to members; non-members will be charged $20 (Individual Membership is only $35).

We require that all job and internship opportunities include a stated compensation range, expressed as a salary, hourly wage, or stipend. Meant to encourage greater diversity and reduced burnout in collecting institutions, this requirement is made in coordination with museum associations around the country based on information from the National Emerging Museum Professionals Network

An archive of Maine Archives and Museums press releases 2011-2015 are posted here.

    In 1996, interdisciplinary artist, Gustavo Aguilar, experienced a moment of psychic disequilibrium that prompted him to examine what it meant to identify himself as an American artist. Set against the backdrop of Aguilar’s bordertown hometown of Brownsville, Texas, Ah, Raza! The Making of an American Artist traces a line of continuity to the spaces that have mapped themselves out onto him, and to the people whose dispositions are also his own.

    Interested individuals are invited to apply to the Maine Digital Humanities Institute, a FREE online seminar facilitated by Dr. Dianne Fallon, YCCC, from January 22 through March 8, 2019.  The workshop is aimed at building both skills and communities of practice, with the goal of building expertise within the Maine humanities communities, including educators, museum staff and volunteers, and students, especially graduate students.  The project is an outgrowth of efforts at YCCC to expand faculty and student knowledge of digital humanities tools.

    Applications, which are mostly aimed at a getting a sense of applicants and their projects, are due by Monday, November 25.

    In the workshop, participants will work on developing their own digital project over a seven-week time period.  Projects might range from a personal or professional project that you want to play around with, to developing a student assignment that incorporates some of these tools.

    You can find more specific information at a basic website that I have set up here:
