ADST Oral Historian

Do you have what it takes to be an ADST Historian?

ADST is looking for someone to work alongside fabled oral historian Stu Kennedy. The position entails reaching out to and interviewing foreign affairs professionals (mostly retired FSOs) about their lives and experiences in foreign affairs. ADST interviews can be quite lengthy and average 10-12 hours over 5-8 sessions, sometimes more. After the completed transcripts are edited by the interviewee, they are posted on and submitted to the Library of Congress.
