We particularly welcome applications from scholars with demonstrable expertise in the digital humanities. The new faculty member will teach undergraduate courses in both African-American Studies and Women’s Studies and contribute to the dual-title graduate degree programs. The salary/benefit package is competitive, and the position begins in fall 2014.
