TENURE TRACK JOBS []


African / African-American Art[]

Parsons School of Design / The New School, NYC - TT Assistant Professor of Black Visual Culture

Parsons School of Design seeks a faculty member to begin as a postdoctoral scholar for two years, followed by appointment to a position as Assistant Professor (tenure-track).

The expected start date is July 1, 2021.

Parsons School of Design, a college of The New School, seeks a scholar whose work centers on the history, production, interpretation, and reception of images—in all the senses of this word—created by and about the African diaspora. We are especially interested in deeply interdisciplinary scholars who interrogate relationships of race and culture, the representation of race, and constructions of Blackness. The successful candidate will critically examine visual culture and the African diaspora in a potential range of global, national, and/or transnational contexts. We invite a broad interpretation of visual culture including art history and extending (but not restricted) to such fields as fashion, interior design, graphic or communication design, product design, curatorial and museum studies, architecture, performance and multi-media work.

The successful candidate will develop new humanities-based research based on their interests and participate in ongoing research programs and shared expertise with faculty at Parsons and across The New School. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to teach in their specialty field and will be expected to contribute to our more general required courses, including for example, our First-Year course: “Objects as History.” As a community of scholars and practicing artists and designers, Parsons welcomes applicants whose teaching methods embrace the relationship of making to thinking, and who are thoughtful about how to teach humanities subjects to students also engaged in studio work.

This position is part of the new Mellon Initiative for Inclusive Faculty Excellence at The New School. Over the next two years, eight new Mellon fellows will be hired across the University. The goal of the initiative is to integrate a cohort of recent PhDs into the academic community at The New School by providing support, mentorship and participation in the Mellon Transformative Seminar, an interdisciplinary seminar bringing together members of the community representing diverse scholarship across The New School. The appointment begins with a two-year postdoctoral fellowship during which time faculty will develop robust research projects and professional networks, with the option to teach one course in their home department.

After the two-year period, faculty will move directly into a tenure-track position (in this case as Assistant Professor of Black Visual Culture). After appointment to Assistant Professor, they will teach five courses (or their equivalent) per year in an area of their expertise, and will be homed in Parsons, within its School of Art and Design History and Theory (known as ADHT).

Parsons’ School of Art and Design History and Theory offers masters degrees in fashion studies and in design and curatorial studies, and candidates, once they become Assistant Professors, will be expected to contribute to these programs, as well as to Parsons innovative First-Year curriculum. We welcome candidates whose research and/or training includes work in visual and cultural studies, race and ethnic studies, African and African diaspora studies, gender and sexuality studies, colonial and postcolonial studies and other interdisciplinary contexts. Scholars working in any geographic or historic context are welcome, and candidates with highly interdisciplinary backgrounds and intersectional, transnational approaches are encouraged to apply.

The New School, a private university in New York City’s Greenwich Village, serves undergraduate and graduate students across a range of fields with a commitment to bringing practices in design and social research to studying issues of our time and challenging students to become engaged citizens dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good.

You can find more information about the School of Art and Design History and Theory at Parsons here: https://www.newschool.edu/parsons/art-design-history-theory-school/

We are seeking applicants with a potential to build an outstanding record of scholarly research, publications and contributions to discussions in the area of Black Visual Culture, and with an aptitude for scholarly innovation and trans-disciplinarity.

- Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. in Art History or a related field in hand by the position start date (July 1, 2021).

- Preference is for applicants within 4 years or fewer of receiving the Ph.D.

- A clear potential for a trajectory of excellence in scholarly research

- Experience in and demonstrated commitment to teaching at the university level.

- Excellent research design, organization, communication, and writing skills.

- Capacity to work well with students from diverse backgrounds, identities, and levels of professional experience.

- Commitment to collaborating across the University and with external partners.

To ensure consideration, completed applications should be received by the March 15th priority deadline. However, review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

Using The New School’s human resources website https://careers.newschool.edu applicants must submit:

1. cover letter that includes: research interests, teaching philosophy and expertise, and service to the discipline and/or community

We are seeking to appoint a full-time lecturer in Iranian Islamic Art History (651-1725). Applications are invited from candidates whose research interests lie broadly within the spectrum of the Islamic art and/or architecture of the Iranian world, broadly defined. Candidates will therefore be expected to have the centre of gravity of their research squarely in the Iranian world in the Islamic period. Evidence of breadth of interest within the field of Iranian Islamic art and/or architecture is highly desirable, and a firm grounding in Iranian studies generally (e.g. in the fields of language, history, literature, religion) will be an advantage. (Please note that we are not seeking a candidate who is interested in Iranian Islamic art as an offshoot of another field.)  

You should already have, or be close to completing, a Ph.D.  You should be able to provide evidence of your research abilities in the form of publications of internationally-recognized quality as well as a programme of on-going research that will contribute to our reputation as one of the leading Art History departments in the UK (we were ranked 2nd among Art History departments in REF 2014).

You will be expected to offer attractive and accessible undergraduate courses on Iranian art and/or architecture, giving students as much first-hand experience of works as possible. You will also be required to contribute lectures on our first and/or second-year survey modules. Working with postgraduates, both teaching M.Litt. classes and supervising Ph.D. research, will also be a vital part of your role. More broadly, it is expected that the successful candidate will participate in the activities of the Institute of Iranian Studies at the University of St Andrews.  

Like other members of the School, you will be expected to take on administrative tasks as required by the Head of School. Informal enquiries can be directed to the Head of School, Dr Linda Goddard: [ljg21@st-andrews.ac.uk]

Notes:

I received an email from the chair of the department on January 20th that the search had been cancelled. I had applied for the Tenured Professor position. (1/23)

1/23 re: the above statement. Strange they sent rejection emails with the standard "your application has not been selected to move forward" wording yesterday when in fact the search has been canceled.

I'll be the first to bite. Has anyone heard back yet? How many applications do we think they even got? My guess is..... a lot.

I was wondering the same thing. I applied for the Associate level position and assumed even those upper level ones would have been full of applicants. I’m writing this on 12/9/20. Thanks!

Their quarter ended on Dec 12, so maybe nothing before January? Still nothing here, I also applied, but at the jr. level. (12/17)

University of Illinois at Chicago (Chicago, IL) - Bridge to the Faculty Postdoctoral Research Associate in Art History (African, American, African Diaspora and/or Black-Indigenous Art)[]

The Department of Art History at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) invites applications for a “Bridge to the Faculty” postdoctoral Research Associate in the arts of Africa and/or its global diasporas, to begin on August 16, 2021.

The Bridge to the Faculty program is funded by the Chancellor’s Office and administered by the Office of the Provost. It has been designed to diversify the faculty by attracting and retaining promising scholars from groups that have been historically underrepresented in Art History. Successful postdoctoral associates with department approval will have the opportunity to transition to faculty starting in the 2023-2024 academic year. In addition to mentorship within Art History, the research associate will participate in a cohort-based mentoring experience through the Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity, where they will have the opportunity to meet other Bridge to the Faculty Scholars.

This postdoctoral position will bolster a critical and self-reflexive understanding of the discipline of Art History as a product of colonial modernity. Research specialization is open to any time period, but the department is particularly interested in scholars who are committed to recent methodological perspectives and critical engagement with current debates within and beyond the discipline of art history. We are particularly interested in applicants who demonstrate a commitment to interdisciplinary dialogue, theoretical fluency, and research interests that enlarge current faculty strengths. Interest in and capacity to contribute to the department’s program in museum studies is also encouraged.

The successful candidate will be expected to be able to teach one or more survey courses related to the arts of Africa and its global diasporas, such as African Art and Architecture, African American Art, Arts of the Black Atlantic, or other topics of similar breadth, as well as more focused seminars for advanced undergraduate and graduate students on topics related to their specific research interests. The postdoctoral associate will only teach one course per year during an initial two-year term, after which period there is the possibility of transitioning into a tenure-track faculty position with a teaching load of two courses per semester.

Located in the heart of one of the most vibrant cities for art and architecture in the United States, UIC is a comprehensive public urban research university with an exceptionally diverse student body and a strong tradition of support for difference and equality. UIC’s College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts and its School of Art and Art History are committed to engaged scholarship, social justice initiatives, and digital humanities.

Applicants are expected to have completed their PhD no later than August 16, 2021 (the start date of this position), and no earlier than August 16, 2017. All application materials must be received by January 29, 2021. Submit the following to the UIC job board at jobs.uic.edu:

1. Cover letter describing their current and future research plans as well as teaching experience and aims

2. A one-page statement of contributions to diversity

3. Curriculum vita (CV)

4. A writing sample (a dissertation chapter plus abstract and/or a related publication)

Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH) - Two-Year Andrew Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship (Fall 2021-Spring 2023)[]

With the generous support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Dartmouth is pleased to accept applications for three postdoctoral fellowships in the humanities and humanistic social sciences from Fall 2021 to the end of Spring 2023. These fellowships foster the academic careers of scholars who have recently received their Ph.D. degrees by permitting them to pursue their research while gaining mentored experience as teachers and members of the departments and/or programs in which they are housed. The program also benefits Dartmouth by complementing existing curricula with underrepresented fields.

We seek candidates for placement in one of Dartmouth's Arts and Humanities departments/programs, listed below. This year, we are not accepting applications in History or in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. If your degree is in History but your humanistic interdisciplinary work is appropriate for placement in one of our Arts and Humanities departments/programs, then we welcome your application. Applicants must focus on materials customarily associated with research in the humanities or employ methods common in humanistic research.

Dartmouth's Arts and Humanities Departments/Programs:

Departments: Art, Art History, Classics, Comparative Literature, English and Creative Writing, Film and Media Studies, French and Italian, German Studies, Music, Philosophy, Religion, Russian, Spanish and Portuguese, Studio Art, Theater

Interdisciplinary Programs: African and African American Studies; Asian Societies, Cultures, and Languages; Comparative Literature; Jewish Studies; Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies; Middles Eastern Studies; Native American Studies; Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Fellows are expected to be in residency at Dartmouth for the full two years of the fellowship, although occasional travel necessary for research may be approved. Fellows teach one course in their home department(s) or program(s) in the second year of their residency. This course may be offered at any level from introductory to advanced topics that contribute something new to the Dartmouth curriculum, and the selection of the course will be made in consultation with the home department(s) or program(s). Fellows do not teach basic language courses.

The appointed fellows will enjoy full use of such college resources as the library, computing center, the Leslie Center for the Humanities, Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences, the Dickey Center for International Understanding, the Hood Museum of Art, and the Hopkins Center. The 2020-22 fellows received an annual stipend of $57,528 plus benefits, an annual research allowance of $2,000, and a first-year-only computer allowance of $2,500. The terms for the 2021-2023 fellows will be similar.

Fellowship applications and departmental requests to house a fellow will be evaluated by the Leslie Center's Advisory Committee, in consultation with the Associate Deans of the Faculty for the Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Interdisciplinary & International Programs. Strong fellowship applications will be circulated to relevant departments and programs, which will then be invited to apply to house one of the candidates. Departments and programs will be expected to justify requests for a fellow by detailing the benefits expected from, and afforded to, that fellow, and by indicating how the fellow might contribute something new, or currently lacking, to the intellectual life of the college.

Qualifications Applicants for the 2021-23 fellowships must have completed a Ph.D. no earlier than January 1, 2020. Candidates who do not yet hold a Ph.D., but expect to by June 30, 2021, should supply a letter from their home institution corroborating such a schedule. (See “application instructions,” below.)

Center for Italian Modern Art (USA:NY) - Summer/Fall 2021 Fellowships - Deadline: February 1, 2020[]

Each year the Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA) awards multiple CIMA Fellowships to support research and study of Italian modern and contemporary art for doctoral and post-doctoral scholars. Citizens of all nationalities are eligible. CIMA offers a unique experience to its fellows: the annual exhibition serves as a hub for scholars from diverse academic backgrounds to share research derived from the artworks on view with each other and the public. Emphasis is split between individualized study—gaining an intimate knowledge of artists represented through close looking and through researching in depth a topic raised by the installation—and public discourse, as represented by collaboration on public programming and leading interactive exhibition tours. During their residency, fellows also have the opportunity to pursue their own research and connect with scholars and other professionals in and around New York.

Summer-Fall 2021 Fellowships

The exhibition for CIMA’s next season focuses on the early body of work created by the painter Mario Schifano (1934–1998) between 1960 and 1965. Originally planned for October 2020-June 2021, the exhibition has been rescheduled to January-November 2021 in order to maintain the necessary safety and weather the logistical disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As institutions worldwide are cancelling fellowship opportunities, CIMA is reaffirming the vital importance of new scholarship through the expansion of its fellowship program.
