Rhode Island School of Design: Assistant or Associate Professor, History of Art and Design of Europe up to circa 1500 C.E.[]

The Department of Theory and History of Art and Design, in the Division of Liberal Arts, at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), invites applications for a full-time faculty appointment in History of Art and Design of Europe up to circa 1500 C.E. at the rank of Assistant/Associate Professor, to commence fall 2023. Rank will be dependent on professional status and teaching experience. RISD recognizes diversity and inclusion as fundamental to its learning community and integral to an art and design education. We welcome candidates whose areas of expertise foreground works and bodies of knowledge from historically underrepresented communities and whose experience in teaching, scholarship, professional practice, and/or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. We encourage applicants from communities that are underrepresented in the academy: Indigenous peoples, Native American peoples, Black and peoples of color, women, LGBTQIA+, veterans, and people with disabilities.

We are seeking a teacher-scholar whose work explores artistic developments in Europe in relationship to various global connections. This framing is meant to challenge the idea that European art, or the idea of Europe itself, can be understood in isolation, without attention to how European powers viewed and were viewed by the world. This global view doesn’t seek to dilute the specificity of European art—the particular political, economic, religious, gendered, and racial contours that defined its diverse forms and thematics over the centuries. Rather, it seeks to upend the longstanding Eurocentric art historical worldview that has maintained Europe as an exclusive cultural and epistemological domain. Successful candidates will be required to teach six courses per academic year, including participation in our first-year introductory courses, H101 (Global Modernisms) and H102 (Critical Introduction to History of Architecture and Design), which are required of all incoming RISD students. Being able to contribute to the ongoing process of reimagining the undergraduate survey course with new and exciting lectures and topics is an essential requirement of the position. Other teaching responsibilities will include undergraduate and graduate elective courses, including lectures and seminars. These courses contribute to students’ general education requirements at RISD and to requirements for the undergraduate concentration in Theory and History of Art and Design, which students can elect. Additionally, the Division of Liberal Arts houses two interdisciplinary Masters programs: Global Arts and Cultures (GAC) and Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies (NCSS). Depending on Departmental and programmatic needs, colleagues would have the opportunity to teach required MA courses, design graduate electives for the MA degrees, advise MA theses, and participate in the programs’ evolution.

The History of Art and Visual Culture Department (HAVC, havc.ucsc.edu) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Asia-Pacific Visual Cultures. The position centers on the Asia-Pacific region, defined as the western Pacific Ocean, including Southeast Asia (inclusive of Taiwan and Hong Kong), Oceania (Australia and the Pacific Islands), the Philippines, South Asia, and/or East Asia (China, Japan, and Korea). The HAVC Department seeks a scholar whose historical and/or historically-informed research focuses on visual and/or material cultures of this region. We are interested in a colleague whose research and teaching pursue decolonial approaches to art and visual culture practices and consider these in relation to colonial cultures of racialization that entail incarceration, enslavement, genocide, or forced migration, as well as the suppression of social identities (such as those related to gender, sexuality, genealogy, and class). We also welcome applications from scholars who address the socio-environmental aspects of colonial modernity in the Asia-Pacific region from critical and regionally-specific perspectives. This position addresses these issues by advancing local perspectives and voices in a range of historical contexts. The successful candidate will teach and advise graduate students in the Visual Studies Ph.D. program and major and non-major undergraduate students in the HAVC B.A. program.

Founded in 1833, Oberlin is a private four-year, selective liberal arts college near Cleveland, Ohio and is also home to an outstanding Conservatory of Music. Together, the two divisions enroll approximately 2900 students. Oberlin College was the first college in the US to make interracial education and co-education central to its mission. The College continues to view a diverse, equitable and inclusive educational environment as essential to the excellence of its academic program. Among liberal arts colleges, Oberlin is a national leader in successfully placing graduates into Ph.D. programs.

About The successful hire in Early Modern Art History will be joining a department committed to diversity in the design of our curriculum and in the teaching of our various subfields. A specialist in this area will allow us to continue our efforts to diversify our curriculum and to reach a more diverse student body. We seek a scholar who will help us expand our geographic and methodological coverage, forge connections to other departments and programs, and develop a research portfolio while at Oberlin.

The Art History Department benefits from its close curricular proximity to the Studio Art Department, as well as the presence of the exemplary collection of the Allen Memorial Art Museum. The Allen includes a celebrated collection of early modern European art and a growing collection of Colonial Latin American art, set within the context of a universal survey museum. In addition, we have an excellent Art Library. Oberlin is also close to major art museums in Cleveland and Toledo. For information about Art History at Oberlin, see: https://www.oberlin.edu/arts-and-sciences/departments/art-history

Responsibilities The incumbent will teach five courses. Two courses will be at the introductory level and focus on western art, the remaining three will focus on the early modern period (two at the intermediate level and one at the advanced seminar level). Candidates are asked to offer broad geographic and temporal coverage in their introductory courses, which will focus on western art (including cross-cultural engagements). Courses at the intermediate- and upper-level should offer different thematic treatments in any subfield/s in early modern art. Coverage of Europe is expected but we welcome applicants with a research specialization in the arts of early modern Europe and Colonial Latin America, and/or connections between early modern Europe and the wider world, and whose courses cover a broad geographical area (i.e. not only Europe) and cross-cultural engagements.

Qualifications Among the qualifications required for appointment is the Ph.D. degree (in hand or expected by first semester of academic year 2023). Candidates must demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable. Oberlin College is committed to student and faculty diversity, equity and inclusion. The incumbent will bring understanding of or experience working with underrepresented and diverse academic populations. Oberlin is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the excellence and diversity of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service. Oberlin recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran’s status, and/or other protected status as required by applicable law.

Rhode Island School of Design: Assistant or Associate Professor, History of Art and Design of Europe up to circa 1500 C.E.[]

The Department of Theory and History of Art and Design, in the Division of Liberal Arts, at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), invites applications for a full-time faculty appointment in History of Art and Design of Europe up to circa 1500 C.E. at the rank of Assistant/Associate Professor, to commence fall 2023. Rank will be dependent on professional status and teaching experience. RISD recognizes diversity and inclusion as fundamental to its learning community and integral to an art and design education. We welcome candidates whose areas of expertise foreground works and bodies of knowledge from historically underrepresented communities and whose experience in teaching, scholarship, professional practice, and/or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. We encourage applicants from communities that are underrepresented in the academy: Indigenous peoples, Native American peoples, Black and peoples of color, women, LGBTQIA+, veterans, and people with disabilities.

We are seeking a teacher-scholar whose work explores artistic developments in Europe in relationship to various global connections. This framing is meant to challenge the idea that European art, or the idea of Europe itself, can be understood in isolation, without attention to how European powers viewed and were viewed by the world. This global view doesn’t seek to dilute the specificity of European art—the particular political, economic, religious, gendered, and racial contours that defined its diverse forms and thematics over the centuries. Rather, it seeks to upend the longstanding Eurocentric art historical worldview that has maintained Europe as an exclusive cultural and epistemological domain. Successful candidates will be required to teach six courses per academic year, including participation in our first-year introductory courses, H101 (Global Modernisms) and H102 (Critical Introduction to History of Architecture and Design), which are required of all incoming RISD students. Being able to contribute to the ongoing process of reimagining the undergraduate survey course with new and exciting lectures and topics is an essential requirement of the position. Other teaching responsibilities will include undergraduate and graduate elective courses, including lectures and seminars. These courses contribute to students’ general education requirements at RISD and to requirements for the undergraduate concentration in Theory and History of Art and Design, which students can elect. Additionally, the Division of Liberal Arts houses two interdisciplinary Masters programs: Global Arts and Cultures (GAC) and Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies (NCSS). Depending on Departmental and programmatic needs, colleagues would have the opportunity to teach required MA courses, design graduate electives for the MA degrees, advise MA theses, and participate in the programs’ evolution.

Review begins January 3, 2023

Specialties might include technical art history, curatorial studies, intersections between art and science, art and the environment, art theory and practice, art as a system of knowledge, and Islamic art. This position will complement our current strengths in the early modern Iberian world and the Americas and strengthen collaborative work with other units on the University of Delaware campus. The Art History Department encourages historical rigor, methodological pluralism, and interdisciplinary dialogue, and is committed to the core values of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We seek collaborative scholars, teachers, and mentors who aim to be leaders in their field.

The position requires coverage of modern and contemporary art history, inclusive of global perspectives in the field. Our department is invested in extending our curriculum beyond Eurocentric cannons.

Notes: Is this the 3rd year they've run this search? - yes, the admin keeps pulling the line/offer at the last minute (in the summer, well after candidates have accepted an offer and turned down other options)

- buyer beware: the department has lost all of its full-time Art Historians in the last four years and the college administration has indicated that it plans to shutter the Art History program within 5-10 years. The college has dire budget shortfalls and the administration is extremely unwilling to invest in new tenure appointment and frequently denies tenure. The remaining studio faculty are interested in removing Art History as a major and transitioning the department to Art and Visual Culture.
