Hiring for Summer 2021 Special Issue

It’s official! The Review is publishing our second Special Issue at the end of the summer semester around the theme of racial equity, diversity, and justice. 

We envision the issue — which will be a highly-visual, full-color magazine — commemorating a year since the protests over police brutality and injustice last summer, as well as lifting the work and conversations which Oberlin has historically and continues to be involved in. Our content will span cultural, scientific, and activist work across historical and contemporary contexts, all with the aim of giving more visibility to the racial struggle we participate in while uplifting Black voices and other Obies of color on this campus. 

In order to bring these goals to fruition, the Review needs a staff to edit stories, take and edit photos, and produce graphics. Special issue employment will be just for the summer semester— however special issue staff  are welcome to apply for open fall positions in September. Click here to view the application!

 

This application closes June 2

Work will begin June 7 and conclude the first week of August. 

Section Editors 

This content will draw from historical and current events and feature opinions from many different voices. These editors will be responsible for finding and keeping in contact with writers, writing articles as they see fit to fill out their section, editing raw material through the production process, and signing off on their pieces in layout. They will also be collaborating with visual art staff to find appropriate images to accompany each piece. These positions all have a stipend of $72.20 a week (8 hours) for nine weeks. Currently we are still hiring for two sections.

  • The Activism Editors (2) will be responsible for sourcing and creating content for the special issue that has to do with racial justice activism in the Oberlin community. 
  • The Science Editor (1) will be responsible for sourcing and creating content for the Special Issue that has to do with pertinent research and sciences regarding racial and political issues in the Oberlin community.
