Sought: academics, scholars and experts to lead intellectual walking tours in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles
Context Travel, a leading organization in travel for intellectually curious travelers, is looking to expand its docent pool in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.
Context is a very different sort of travel company: We work with local scholars and experts to create theme-based "walking seminars" in many of the major cities worldwide. It got its start in Rome over a decade ago, and now has over 800 docents working more than 35 cities worldwide cities, many of whom are university professors, graduate students, or independent researchers.
Work is on a flexible freelance basis to meet the varying needs of each docent's outside working demands. We are looking for scholars who are already based in these cities or will be relocating to these cities for research for at least 6 months. Context is looking for experts in a variety of specialties: history, architecture, art history, contemporary art, social history, design, literature, food & drink, etc.
Please apply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a CV and cover letter detailing your experience and motivation. Guiding experience is not a prerequisite, and is less important than a passion for your subject, willingness to share and a knack for storytelling.
