Assistant Professor, Historical Studies (Middle Eastern)
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New York, United States|
The Department of Middle Eastern Studies at Bard College seeks a tenure-track assistant professor to teach modern Middle-Eastern history (post-1600). The successful candidate will be able to teach survey and advanced courses on the history of the Arab lands since 1800. Applicants whose historical research covers the modern Middle East more broadly conceived (including, for example, Ottoman history) will be seriously considered as well. Expertise on European imperialism in the region would be an added benefit and would connect with other dimensions of the History Department�s curriculum. Fluency in Arabic is a plus, as is the ability to contribute theoretical and methodological courses in a disciplinary area. Teaching in First-Year Seminar is expected.
Bard College is a highly selective co-educational liberal arts college of 1900 students, located in the Hudson Valley 90 minutes north of New York City. For more information on Bard, visit www.bard.edu.
