The New School (New York, NY, USA), Assistant Professor of Public Humanities (Deadline: Nov 15th; Review begins Nov 16 until fulfilled)[]

The New School is seeking an Assistant Professor of Public Humanities to teach in the Liberal Arts program in the Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students in the Schools of Public Engagement (SPE). The renewable term appointment will begin July 1, 2022.

We seek a scholar with a research and teaching program that merges humanities-based inquiry with innovative forms of public engagement, reaching audiences both within and outside academia. As a member of the interdisciplinary adult bachelor’s program, this hire will advance the mission of SPE through pedagogy that encourages students to be civically engaged actors and prepares them for community-based, creative, and /or applied work beyond the classroom. While we will consider scholars from a wide range of disciplines within the humanities, we have a particular interest in candidates whose research engages interdisciplinary fields and who have degrees from programs such as American Studies, Critical Race and Ethnicity Studies, Cultural Studies, Performance Studies, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Environmental Studies. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated record of social justice advocacy. Preference will also be given to candidates whose research addresses historically underrepresented groups and/or marginalized communities, spaces, and places.

The New School’s Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students offers a self-designed liberal arts education where students can pursue a nontraditional path toward degree completion. Through credit granting programs such as Prior Learning and Self Directed Learning, students reflect on their experiences outside the classroom and execute projects under the guidance of our faculty.

As such, they represent a highly self-motivated student body with diverse work experiences and backgrounds.

As part of the Schools of Public Engagement at The New School, the Bachelor’s Program for Adults and Transfer Students values traditional modes of scholarship (e.g., peer reviewed journal articles and books directed at scholarly or general audiences) and creative practice in different media (e.g., films, performance, art exhibitions, and other curatorial projects).

Simon Fraser University - Assistant Professor or Associate Professor [Deadline: Application review begins Nov 30 until filled][]

Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC Chair in Hellenic Studies[]

The Department of Humanities at Simon Fraser University invites applications for a full-time appointment of a scholar who will hold the 5-year, renewable Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC Chair in Hellenic Studies, starting July 15, 2022. This position is advertised as open rank and will be filled by either an Assistant Professor or Associate Professor. A candidate for a junior Chair (Assistant or Associate Professor rank) will be a scholar who has a record of scholarly achievements well beyond that normally expected of a faculty member in that rank and who, based on their accomplishments to date, has the clear potential to make an extraordinary contribution to their discipline. Only those eligible to be appointed to the rank of Assistant Professor or Associate Professor will be considered. Appointment with tenure at the Associate Professor rank is possible.  

Excellence in research and teaching are the primary criteria for this position. Candidates must have research expertise either in Greek Language and Literature of the Late Antique and Medieval periods or in the History of Art of the Byzantine era. Additional linguistic or regional expertise will be welcome. The ideal candidate will have a successful record in their chosen specialization and be well regarded in their field. Applicants must hold a completed PhD in any one of the following fields: Classics, Philology, History of Art, or a clearly related area of expertise (e.g. History with demonstrated Philological grounding or Religious Studies with Philological and Art Historical expertise).

Duties will include research, teaching courses at the undergraduate level, graduate supervision, university service, and outreach both within the university and in the wider community. Ability to teach outside the advertised disciplinary focus, notably in other specializations within the broader umbrella of Hellenic Studies and Humanities (Ancient and Modern Greek Art or Literature and Language, or Medieval Art and Literature of the wider world around and beyond Byzantium), will be assessed positively.

The successful candidate will develop courses that effectively integrate their field of expertise into the curriculum and research profile of the Department of Humanities, as well as actively engaging in the research and outreach activities of the Department and the affiliated Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) Centre for Hellenic Studies.

SFU is consistently ranked among the top comprehensive universities in Canada. The Department of Humanities is a union between the Department of Humanities and the Hellenic Studies Program (since summer 2020) that reflects their shared commitment to dialogue across cultures in a manner that engages with ancient traditions and their receptions, by way of ideas, texts, and art. The Department boasts expertise in Classics, Classical and Early Christian Archaeology, Byzantine and Early Modern History, Modern Greek Literature, and Balkan History, as well as other areas in Humanities, including Asian Studies. More information about the department and the university can be found on our website at

The holder of the Hellenic Canadian Congress of BC Chair in Hellenic Studies will work closely with the members of the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies – in which they will assume active membership – to meet the mandate of the Chair’s Terms of Reference in a manner most conducive to strong research output and robust outreach among communities of Greeks and philhellenes in BC and the world over. The SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies at SFU is a leading site for the study of Greece's history, language and culture. More information on the Centre may be found on its website:,The SFU campus is located on Burnaby Mountain in Metro Vancouver. Vancouver is a scenic waterfront city situated minutes from the mountains and a wide range of outdoor activities. It has a reputation as a clean, safe, multicultural and ethnically diverse city and is consistently ranked as one of the very top cities in the world in which to live and work.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, qualified Canadian citizens and permanent residents will be given priority. Simon Fraser University is an institution whose strength is based on our shared commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Diversity is an underlying principle of our Strategic Vision, which pledges SFU to “foster a culture of inclusion and mutual respect, celebrating the diversity reflected among its students, faculty, staff, and our community.” SFU is committed to ensuring that no individual is denied access to employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability or qualifications.

Applications will be reviewed starting November 30, 2021, and will continue until the position is filled.

Position description

The Division of Social Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara, is conducting a search for the inaugural director of the Center for Feminist Futures. Building on a long tradition of outstanding research and teaching on gender and sexuality at UC Santa Barbara, the Center will bring together scholars and students to engage in and disseminate publicly facing research that moves us toward gender justice. Since 2018, the Feminist Futures Initiative has been modelling the kind of research and programming envisioned for the Center, building on three pillars:

❖ Intersectional Feminism: to imagine and work toward a more just future for all

❖ Intergenerational Collaboration: to empower rising generations of feminist leaders

❖ Impactful Research: to generate publicly facing scholarship for the common good

We are seeking a visionary and energetic leader who holds a Ph.D. in a social science or humanistic social science field with a strong record of interdisciplinary and intersectional research on gender and sexuality; demonstration of effective teaching and mentoring; evidence of committed professional, campus, and community leadership; and expression of an innovative vision for the future of the Center. Appointment will be at the rank of associate or full professor within a department in the Division of Social Sciences—which encompasses Anthropology, Asian American Studies, Black Studies, Chicana and Chicano Studies, Communication, Economics, Feminist Studies, Global Studies, Political Science, and Sociology—and with a preference for at least 50% appointment in the Department of Feminist Studies. Scholars with strong leadership experience in policy, practical, and activist realms, in global and/or local contexts and related to the central Feminist Futures goals, are encouraged to apply.

The Center will be housed in the Division of Social Sciences and will bring together faculty and students from throughout the university. The hallmark of the Division of Social Sciences is the commitment to generating new knowledge about society, both locally and globally, with an emphasis on making knowledge on issues of pressing contemporary importance accessible to diverse publics in the interest of social justice and the common good. The Center will be committed to translating and disseminating research to communities and publics outside the university through policy papers, blogs, podcasts, op-eds, videos, and other creative means. Our emphasis on intergenerational connections affirms that young people—undergraduate students as well as high school students—are essential to the research we produce and disseminate. Through collaborative research, internships and working groups, the Center for Feminist Futures will embody intergenerational cooperation.

This is a unique opportunity for the inaugural Director to play a leadership role to build the Center. A committed group of faculty members and graduate students have participated in developing the concept for the Center and engaging in research and public programming, including “Good News from the Global South: Feminist Futures in Troubled Times” (2019), “Race, Gender, and Voting Patterns: Why Do White Women Vote for Trump?” (2019), “Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence: Is Title IX Broken?” (2020), “Beyond the Bathroom Wars: What is the Future of Transgender Politics?” (2020), “Intimate Futures: Black Sexualities and the Twin Pandemics of COVID-19 and Anti-Black Racism” (2021), and “Care Across the Generations” (2021). The new Director will launch the next stage in the Center's development.

The Department of Feminist Studies is home to the Hull Chair, the first endowed chair in women's studies in the University of California system, and is also seeking a senior scholar to assume future leadership in the department: Feminist Studies has ten full-time faculty members and numerous affiliated faculty members from the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts, Division of Social Sciences, and Gevirtz Graduate School of Education.

The Center for Feminist Futures will be located in the Division of Social Sciences, with active participation of faculty members in the Division of Humanities and Fine Arts and other divisions, schools, and colleges. The Director will be appointed to a five-year renewable term and will receive a 50% appointment (two-course reduction from a four-course teaching load) and an annual stipend. The Center has current-use funding and is in the process of building an endowment. There will be support for website management, outreach, social media, grant-writing, and event planning. The Director's duties will include conceptualization and coordination of specific thematic scholarly initiatives, donor cultivation, building connections among students and faculty members on campus, coordination with other entities and institutions, public engagement, media relations, and supervision of personnel. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service as appropriate to the position.
