Historian in Residence

Heritage Calgary and the Calgary Public Library invite applications for the paid position of historian in residence at Central Library for 2022.

The historian in residence program is a six-month community engagement residency that supports historians and researchers working in any genre related to Calgary’s (Moh’kins’tsis’) social, cultural and built history.

The resident is invited to work remotely, and/or in a designated office space on the fourth floor of Central in our Calgary’s Story collection. They will engage with the public through programs such as open office hours, interactive/online workshops, school group tours and lectures.

They are encouraged to use the Library’s collection and Heritage Calgary’s inventory of evaluated historic resources during the residency and are invited to curate an exhibit, performance or screening at the close of their residency.

The historian in residence is selected in partnership with Calgary Public Library.

View the call for applications to learn more and apply by Monday, February 14, 2022.
