INTRODUCTION

The Department of Anthropology at the University of Connecticut seeks to hire an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) with a research focus on the African Diaspora within the Americas whose research and teaching centers in areas such as social, historical, or cultural dimensions of inequality or strategies for effective interventions against settler colonialism; racism; globalization of white spaces and institutions; or xenophobia. Topics might relate, for example, to inequalities of race/ethnicity, class, gender, health, migration, citizenship, and/or sexuality among African-descended peoples in North America. We strongly encourage applications from emerging scholars with broad training and an active research agenda who demonstrate theoretical innovation and a commitment to ethnographic engagement. The ideal candidate’s area(s) of specialty will contribute to an interdisciplinary and intersectional understanding of cultural structures or institutions that enable and sustain anti-Black racialization and relate broadly to one or more of the academic themes championed by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, especially Inequalities, Social Justice, Truth, and Belief and Health, Disease, and Well-Being. Candidates should be able to offer courses that expand current offerings on anti-racism, state-sponsored anti-Black violence, and decolonial thought and practice, with the expectation that these courses would be included in General Education requirements. Qualified candidates should also be able to teach large survey courses, such as ANTH 1000(W) (Peoples and Cultures of the World), ANTH 1006 (Introduction to Anthropology); ANTH 2000(W) (Social Anthropology), as well as courses on methods and field research applicable to a wide range of majors from across the University. The candidate will support UConn’s long tradition of research and training in Cultural Anthropology by offering undergraduate and graduate courses, advising, and mentoring students, and engaging actively in Departmental and interdisciplinary initiatives. This hire demonstrates UConn's and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and builds on the College’s existing strengths in Decolonial and Anti-Racism scholarship.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is also home to a vibrant collective of Institutes and Programs engaged in anti-racism scholarship, area studies, and intersectional struggles against oppression, including Africana Studies, American Studies, Asian and Asian American Studies, El Instituto, Native American and Indigenous Studies, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

The Department of Anthropology values diversity and is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community through research, teaching, and service.  We also accept the American Association of Biological Anthropologists' Code of Ethics, the American Anthropological Association’s Statement on Ethics, the Society for Applied Anthropology’s Statement of Ethics and Professional Responsibilities, and the American Association of University Professors' Sexual Harassment Policy.  We pledge to respect each other, our students, and the people, animals, and places we study.

Our current faculty members all contribute somehow to the health initiative (including Environmental Determinants, Biomedical Research, Family and Community Determinants, Health Policy, and Medical Education) of Baylor’s strategic plan “Illuminate” (https://illuminate.web.baylor.edu/) in addition to the initiatives in Human Flourishing and Latin America.  We aim to continue this trend.

Given the general topic of the anthropology of health, we anticipate recruiting someone capable of teaching courses that would be cross-listed in other departments like Biology, Environmental Science, Medical Humanities, and Psychology and Neuroscience, among others.  Successful applicants would likely have secondary appointments in other departments (Anthropology is considered a STEM discipline at Baylor).

Applications will be reviewed on a continual basis will be accepted until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, complete applications should be submitted by 9/30/2022.  The following materials should be uploaded into Interfolio: cover letter (explaining qualifications, current and future research plans, and teaching experience and philosophy), current curriculum vitae, transcript of highest degree earned (or if PhD is in progress, a copy of transcript showing completed PhD hours; unofficial transcripts are acceptable for now), and the contact information (names, email addresses, and phone numbers) for three potential references (referees will be contacted by the search committee separately).  Finalists for the position will be required to submit official doctoral transcripts in advance of a campus visit.  Employment will be contingent upon the successful completion of a background check.  The candidate should possess an earned doctorate (at the time of appointment) in an appropriate field of study; doctoral candidates capable of finishing their PhD before August 15 will also be considered in this search.

Institute for Research in the Humanities, University of Wisconsin-Madison - Fellowship - pre-1700 Europe[]

The Institute for Research in the Humanities (IRH) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is pleased to offer four Solmsen Fellowships for the academic year 2023-2024, to be awarded to scholars from outside the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Through a generous bequest from Friedrich and Lieselotte Solmsen, the Solmsen Fellowships sponsor scholars working in the humanities on European history, literature, philosophy, politics, religion, art and culture in the classical, medieval, and/or early modern periods before 1700. Projects on the relationship of pre-1700 Europe to other parts of the world are also welcome. The Solmsen Fellowship does not typically support editions, anthologies, or translations.

Solmsen Fellows are expected to be in residence at the IRH throughout the academic year (except for short research trips, lectures, conferences, etc.) and may extend this residency through the following summer on a non-stipendiary basis. However, the fellowship may not be deferred for any reason. The award provides a stipend of $60,000, office space, support services, and access to all university facilities. Fellows are expected to present their work at an Institute seminar and participate in the weekly seminars. Applicants must be in possession of the doctorate at the time of application.

Applications are due Thursday, October 27, 2022. Notification of awards will be made by early March 2023.

If a new hire's vaccination is not complete or information is not received by their start date, the first day of work will be delayed. It is possible in some cases that an offer of employment may be withdrawn.

Society for the Humanities Fellowships

The Society for the Humanities at Cornell University invites applications for residential fellowships from scholars and artists whose projects reflect on the 2023-24 theme of Crossing. Up to six fellows will be appointed. The fellowships are held for one year (August through July). Each Society Fellow will receive $56,000.

Fellows include scholars and practitioners from other universities and members of the Cornell faculty released from regular duties. Fellows at the Society for the Humanities are “residential,” and will collaborate with one another and the Taylor Family Director of the Society for the Humanities, Paul Fleming, L. Sanford and Jo Mills Reis Professor of Humanities and professor of comparative literature and German studies. Fellows spend their time in research and writing during the residential fellowship, and are required to participate in a weekly Fellows Seminar workshopping each other’s projects and discussing readings based on the yearly theme.

The nature of this fellowship year is social and communal—fellows forge connections outside the classroom and the lecture hall by sharing meals following the weekly seminar and attending post-lecture receptions and other casual events throughout the year. Fellows live and work in Ithaca, NY, and are expected to be in their offices on campus frequently. All applicants for Society Fellowships should share in this commitment to creating a supportive and intellectually stimulating community.

Fellows teach one small seminar during their fellowship year appropriate for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Though courses are designed to fit the focal theme, there are no additional restrictions on what or how the course should be taught. Fellows are encouraged to experiment with both the content and the method of their seminar particularly as it relates to their current research.

2023-24 Focal Theme: CROSSING

The Society for the Humanities at Cornell University seeks interdisciplinary research projects for year-long residencies that reflect on the theme of Crossing. Crossing begins by opening a possibility: to meet or to pass by, to encounter in a spirit of collaboration or conflict. Like an X on a map, crossing marks both a place and a process, an intersection and a journey. Crossing entails navigating borders between states on scales ranging from the cellular to the geopolitical. As the embodiment of movement, crossing creates opportunity and transition, continuity and contact, collision and negation, while its infrastructures implicate objects, channels, and traces in the passage of bodies and ideas. In its capacious fluidity, crossing describes incursions and excursions of all kinds. It can testify to migration and exile, to shifting formations of gender and sexuality, to cultures of creolization and code-switching. At the same time, it can denote an act of cancelation or erasure: a literal crossing out. The act of crossing two pen strokes forms an X that stands as a symbol of identification or denial, affirmation or rejection. Conversely, “crossed wires” as an admission of confusion can lead to unexpected or dangerous outcomes, as can roads or tracks that cross, and the confrontations they enable.

As a cultural-political phenomenon, crossing can be a transgression that breaks down boundaries of style and genre in music, fiction, and digital media. In forming junctions, engendering hybridity, and inevitably leading to entanglement, crossing is transient and provisional, inviting us to think beyond the ostensible stability of the categories it connects and bypasses as well as on the spaces in-between. The Society for the Humanities invites applications from scholars and artists who are interested in participating in a productive, critical dialogue concerning the topic of crossing from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

Qualifications: Fellows should be working on topics related to the 2023-24 theme of Crossing. Their approach to the humanities should be broad enough to appeal to students and scholars in several humanistic disciplines.

Applicants must have received the Ph.D. degree before January 1, 2022. The Society for the Humanities will not consider applications from scholars who received the Ph.D. after this date. Applicants must also have one or more years of teaching experience, which may include teaching as a graduate student. International scholars are welcome to apply, contingent upon visa eligibility.

Application Procedures: The following application materials must be submitted via AJO fellowship #21965 on or before the deadline of September 20, 2022. Any other method of applying will not be accepted.

1. A curriculum vitae

2. A one-page abstract describing the research project the applicant would like to pursue during the term of the fellowship (up to 300 words)

3. A detailed statement of the research project (1,000 – 2,000 words). Applicants may also include a one-page bibliography of the most essential materials to the project.

4. A course proposal for a seminar related to the applicant’s research. Seminars meet two hours per week for one semester and enrollment is limited to fifteen advanced undergraduates and graduate students. The course proposal should consist of:

a. A brief course description suitable for the University course catalog (50-125 words)

b. A detailed course proposal (up to 300 words)

c. A list of the essential texts for the course

5. One scholarly paper (no more than 35 pages in length)

6. Two letters of recommendation from senior colleagues in your field (from any institution) to whom candidates should send their research proposal and teaching proposal. Letters of recommendation should include an evaluation of the candidate’s proposed research and teaching statements. Please ask referees to submit their letters directly through the application link. Letters must be submitted on or before September 20, 2022.

The deadline to apply is September 20, 2022. Awards will be announced by the end of December 2022.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations. If you need accommodations in order to complete the application, please contact Society for the Humanities staff at [[21]]

Misc Questions[]

12/20 - Just curious about some lingering applications (cultural anth) going into 2023. has anyone heard from Penn State (climate risk position), USC or CUNY…?

1/17 Penn State first round zoom interviews were mid December. No word since.

12/27 (& probably before) - Letters of recommendation solicited by USC from recommenders; no word since!

^Nope! I have many lingering ones, too. I guess we can assume that after a month or so we weren't selected and those that were are not on this wiki.
