University of Richmond, Art and Art History
Tucker-Boatwright Chair in Modern and/or Contemporary Art History
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Virginia, United States|
The Department of Art & Art History invites applications from distinguished scholars for a tenured, endowed Chair in the History of Modern and/or Contemporary Art. Applicants working in any area within this broad field are welcome. While the position is not limited by geographical focus, we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary scholars whose research, teaching and public engagement prioritize diverse perspectives and histories and who demonstrate an understanding of the experience of those under-represented in higher education. The candidate should aim to promote inclusivity and dialogue both within the classroom and the larger communities of the University and the city of Richmond. The University is conducting initiatives in the Arts and Humanities, developing a long-term vision for the School of Arts & Sciences and implementing a strategic plan and academic programs that focus on inclusivity and academic excellence, racial justice and community-based learning. We are interested in individuals, trained as art historians, who want to engage this crucial moment in the visual arts and who see their work as participating in a public conversation about the role of the arts at the University and in contemporary society.
