Loyola University Maryland invites applicants for the inaugural Hanway Chair in Global Studies, beginning August, 2013. The Hanway Chair was established to provide visionary leadership to the Global Studies program, and to support the university's efforts to increase interdisciplinary discourse. Global Studies is an interdisciplinary undergraduate major based in the departments of Economics, History, Political Science and Sociology. The major was established in 2006-07, has experienced rapid growth, and is poised for further expansion in the future. The Hanway Chair is a full time faculty position to be held by a distinguished scholar and dynamic leader with a record of research and teaching focused on global or international issues.
The holder of the Hanway Chair in Global Studies will have a departmental home in one of the four core Global Studies departments: Economics, History, Political Science or Sociology. The successful candidate will have an established record of scholarship and teaching consistent with the rank of associate or full professor in the appropriate department. The holder of the Hanway Chair in Global Studies will be expected to maintain a record of on-going scholarly research that is at a minimum consistent with the rank of associate or full professor in the home department. The holder of the Chair will receive a reduced teaching load relative to the Loyola norm for tenured faculty of three courses per semester. The Chair will be expected to teach courses that satisfy the needs of the home department and the Global Studies program. Typically, these will be upper level electives in the Chair's area of expertise.
The holder of the Hanway Chair in Global Studies will be expected to provide faculty leadership for initiatives to promote interdisciplinary discourse on campus and to foster growth and development of faculty within the Global Studies program.
