Jobs with 2021 Application Deadlines

Berea College (Berea, KY) Tenure-track Position in Women’s and Gender Studies

Berea College, home of the new bell hooks center, invites applicants for an Assistant Professor in Women’s and Gender Studies to begin in August 2022. Applicants must have a PhD in hand, preferably in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies or a complementary interdisciplinary field. The candidate will teach six classes each year, including the department’s introductory survey course—Decolonizing Feminism—as well as a queer and trans studies course, and a feminist and queer dis/ability studies course. The candidate is also expected to teach two classes each year in the General Education program.

Teaching and research expertise in the following areas are preferred: women-of-color feminism(s), anti-racist and anti-colonial feminism(s), sexuality studies, and disability studies. We especially welcome training and expertise in Native approaches to feminism, including Indigenous re/visions of (white) feminism’s institutionalization of queer and trans studies; as well as expertise in the intersection of Indigeneity and dis/ability, broadly construed.

Berea College, the first interracial and co-educational college in the South, remains committed to grappling with race and gender equity through its Eight Great Commitments. It’s motto and mission—to make of one blood “all peoples of the earth”—reflects these values. As such, we seek candidates who are committed to excellence in teaching in a liberal arts environment in which all members of the campus community—students, administrators, faculty, and staff, regardless of race and/or gender differences—seek to learn from and about each other. We also seek candidates whose professional research reflects these values, and whose mentorship of students are informed by these values.

Applicants should submit: (1) a letter of application; (2) an up-to-date curriculum vitae; (3) graduate transcripts; (4) a teaching portfolio, including teaching evaluations from two recent courses, a statement of teaching philosophy, and (preferably) sample syllabi; (5) a one-page research statement; (6) a 15-20 page writing sample; (7) a one-page diversity statement describing how the applicant’s scholarship and teaching will contribute to Berea College’s Great Commitments (found at https://www.berea. edu/the-great-commitments/); and (8) three letters of recommendation to apply. Review of applications will begin October 15, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.

Founded in 1855, Berea College achieved national distinction as the first coeducational and interracial college in the South. Berea has a longstanding commitment to interracial education and is one of the most racially diverse private liberal arts colleges in the United States. With an emphasis on service to Appalachia and beyond, Berea enrolls 1,600 students from 43 states and U.S. territories and more than 70 countries. Berea College only admits students who are unable to afford tuition and provides all of them a no-tuition promise, valued at more than $178,000 over four years. Berea’s students excel in the College’s supportive yet demanding academic environment, and many are the first in their families to graduate college. As one of nine federally recognized Work Colleges, all Berea students hold a position in which they work 10-12 hours weekly. In 2021, Berea College once again topped the list of “Best Value Colleges” in the nation in The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (THE) College Rankings. Berea’s no-tuition model contributed to its No. 1 best-value ranking. Forbes cited a 2021 study of nearly 400 colleges in the United States, in which Berea College ranks second in terms of affordability and academic quality. And in 2021 The Princeton Review cited Berea College as “one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates to earn their college degree.” The publication also recognized Berea as a Best Value College, based on academic rigor, affordability and graduates’ career outcomes; a Best Green College; and a Tuition-Free School.

Located where the Bluegrass Region meets the Cumberland Mountains, the town of Berea (pop. 16,000) lies forty miles south of Lexington and is approximately two hours from Cincinnati, Louisville, and Knoxville. More information about Berea College is available at

Berea College, in light of its mission in the tradition of impartial love and social equality, welcomes all people of the earth to learn and work here.

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. Many of our students work full time and are returning to school having pursued careers in a wide variety of fields. 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). Ideal candidates for this position would complement the faculty through public facing scholarship and practice.

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 programs and contributing to the public good.

The New School is committed to actively recruiting applicants from a diverse pool and we encourage candidates from groups underrepresented in US higher education to apply. We recognize systemic barriers to higher education and employment and we aim to reduce barriers to careers in higher education through our required and preferred qualifications. We specifically invite applicants from communities who have been and continue to be marginalized from the humanities and liberal arts more broadly.

The New School is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive learning environment that furthers equity, inclusion and social justice. We actively seek candidates whose experiences, teaching philosophies, and scholarly practice prepare them to expand and contribute to that commitment.

The New School does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, creed, sex or gender (including gender identity and expression), pregnancy, sexual orientation, religion, religious practices, mental or physical disability, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, veteran status, marital or partnership status, or any other legally protected status.

Word on the Street


Has anyone heard anything from the TT search in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Wesleyan University? The application deadline was back on October 1st. 11/18 haven't heard anything.

11/19: I’m pretty sure they’ve done first-round interviews already (heard through a friend, haven’t gotten any official notice)

11/22 - rejection email recieved, 460 applications.

11/22: Has anyone heard from Haverford? Very anxious to know if the "shortly before Thanksgiving" window has already passed.

-Second this! Hope someone can provide some updates. Thanks!

11/23: Requests for letters via Interfolio from Haverford— I guess they made their deadline.

--Sorry, new to this. Did people get a specific request, or just find that their Interfolio now was "incomplete" with the option for letters?

-- no need to apologize! In this case, received an email.

-- I did not get an email but the Interfolio says incomplete and now requires letters, so I'm confused.

-- same as above; no request, but incomplete on Interfolio.
--Letter requests were sent by email. The "incomplete" on interfolio is apparently a system glitch that cannot be resolved until the end of the holiday weekend.

11/24: Has anyone heard anything from University of Oklahoma? (Applications due Nov 1)

11/24: Does anyone know if UMD has sent out interview invitations?
