This position is open to scholars across the humanities and arts, including all literatures and language departments, history and all area studies, philosophy, religion, women's, gender, and sexuality studies, African American Studies, film and media studies, and legal studies."
  • @This position is one of several new faculty appointments in the humanities made possible by support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. These interdisciplinary appointments seek to bridge humanistic inquiry with other disciplines by applying its traditional principles to new fields of study; by examining traditional areas of research and teaching by means of new approaches; and by exporting principles of humanistic inquiry across not only the humanities but the academy much more broadly."

The other Mellon position, in health and humanities, details an extensive list of materials that committee members want to accompany the CV and cover letter, so I'm a little thrown off by the "includes", with no other clarification, in this one. If they just wanted CV and letter, I suppose that the ad would simply say that, but why "includes" without the specifications? Is it just a free for all of additional materials? Or indeed simply CV and letter? Does anyone want to shed some light on this one? Many thanks.
