  • Anyone heard about this one?
  • As of 11/21, I've heard nothing.  Put in an email a while ago to make sure that app was complete since letters had to come separately by snail mail.  I haven't heard back.  Hope it was complete!
  • Phone interviews schedule for next week, 11/22.
  • The history of this department sounds volatile.  These 2 new hires basically have to start a whole new department.  Google the department and you'll see that students are not happy. Starting a department from scratch--making students, faculty, and admin happy in the process?  That's a lot of pressure, especially while on the tenure clock in a different discipline. 
  • Agreed. These positions will be challenging on a different level than other tenure-track positions.
  • Could also be really rewarding with the right hires and committment.
  • Any updates? (12/04)
  • They said they would be moving quickly, trying to interview before the holidays. But I haven't heard anything. I assumed it was because I wasn't chosen for one. But who knows?  Since they are hiring 2, I wonder how many they will bring out.
  • Campus invite, 12/06, for January-February.
    • Same here.  Hey maybe we'll end up colleagues! *likes*
    • Have interviews started yet?  Timeline?
  • It seems truly a mess there: HLC cited the university, again, for its lack of commitment to diversity; their Native Studies webpage reveals a curriuculm that is non-existent (false advertising?); local reports of racism against Native students, faculty, and staff; etc.
  • Wow.
  • RE: Any updates? Two candidates are from Cornell, one from Utah State University, and one from Penn State (a former USD undergrad). They will be interviewing between January 15 and February 6 2014.

The successful candidate may work on Indigenous issues in a range of settings and geographical locations and will have an ability to set this work within a comparative and relational framework, with an understanding of Aboriginal/Indigenous issues in Canada strongly preferred. We are especially interested in intersectional research that grapples with gender, race, class, sexuality, religion and other important differences, research which draws on or is in conversation with critical transnational, diasporic, and post- and anti-colonial feminist scholarship. Candidates may apply from any disciplinary or interdisciplinary background. We particularly welcome applications from scholars with a commitment to community-based research and to working directly with Aboriginal/Indigenous communities, and an engagement with Indigenous methodologies, including storytelling and arts-based methodologies.

Situated on or near the traditional territories of various First Nations, including the Anishinabe, the Haudenosaunee, and the Huron-Wendat, faculty at WGSI recognize the transcolonial and transnational links that extend throughout the Americas, and elsewhere, and the Indigenous political, social and cultural issues that have given rise to international Indigenous rights and decolonization movements. WGSI at the University of Toronto includes undergraduate and graduate programs, including a new Ph.D. program ( ). WGSI adopts a transnational approach to women and gender studies, an approach which speaks both to the distinctively global character of the city of Toronto, but also to anti- and post-colonial and transnational contexts throughout the world. The transnational perspective explores the global processes in which women's and men's lives, gender relations, gendered subjectivities and sexualities are situated. In particular, WGSI has distinctive strengths in the following five fields: (1) feminist anti- and post-colonial, diasporic and transnational studies; (2) gender, sexuality and queer studies; (3) cultural studies; (4) feminist studies of technology, science, environment and biomedicine; and (5) transnational political economy and development studies. WGSI is devoted to creative, conceptual and empirical research; critical pedagogy; collaborations with a broad group of affiliated faculty; and projects developed with a wide ranging collection of communities and other social justice actors.
