Great Job for English Majors in Boston Area

Job opening in Newton Centre

What the job is:
Communications Assistant, State of Formation. Responsible for managing the online presence of State of Formation and attracting new Contributing Scholars.  Working closely with the Managing Editor, the Communications Assistant will work on the following key tasks: Sending a “call for contributors” to key individual and organizational partners; Managing the Facebook and Twitter accounts, updating multiple times per week; Creating and distributing the weekly State of Formation newsletter

Who they are:
Current discourse on religion and ethics is primarily defined by established leaders – ministers, rabbis, academics and journalists. There is an entire population of important stakeholders without a platform: the up-and-comers. To remedy this, the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue founded State of Formation. Run in partnership with Hebrew College and Andover Newton Theological School and in collaboration with the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions, it is a forum for up-and-coming religious and ethical thinkers to draw upon the learning that is occurring in their academic and community work and reflect on the pressing questions of a religiously pluralistic society.

Where they are:
Circle (Center for Inter-Religious & Communal Leadership Education) is run in affiliation with Andover Newton Theological School and Hebrew College. Both are located in Newton Centre, on the outskirts of the greater Boston-Cambridge area.

How I know of them:
I’ve read some of the material in their Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue, and received an email as part of their mailing list. I’ve enjoyed the online publication, and find it an ecumenically broad-minded, thoughtful resource. I think it would be a really cool place to work!
