Michigan State University (MI)[]

Assistant/Associate/Full Professor of African American & African Studies

Deadline: Oct. 1, 2024

The Department of African American and African Studies (AAAS) invites applications for an assistant professor tenure-stream faculty position (9-month appointment) and an open rank faculty position in Black Feminisms, Genders, and Sexualities Studies (9-month appointment) in the College of Arts & Letters at Michigan State University. The position (both hires) is a 100% appointment in African American and African Studies and begins August 16, 2025. 

AAAS at MSU was initially founded as a Ph.D. granting program in 2002 as a unit committed to making concrete connections between faculty scholarship, pedagogy, and social justice causes. On July 1, 2019, AAAS became a department. An undergraduate major was launched in 2022 to extend the Black Studies experience to an increasingly interested undergraduate population. As of spring 2024, we successfully graduated the first cohort of AAAS Bachelors of Arts. The Department of African American and African Studies embraces diverse approaches to intellectual leadership and artist-scholarship. We welcome interdisciplinary and integrated research, teaching, creative work, and engagement practices that are leading-edge in the doing of Black Studies. As a department our areas of specialization include Black Feminisms, Genders, and Sexualities Studies in all aspects of curriculum. Within the AAAS major, the curriculum is shaped by three concentrations: Communities in Action; Creative Expression, Culture, and Performance; and Black Institutions, Sustainability, and Statecraft.
