The University of Tulsa’s Department of History seeks applications for a one-year Jay T. Walker 20th Century United States and World History Postdoctoral Fellow. Research interests may include--but not be limited to—historical U.S./global perspectives on race, comparative imperialism, transnational migration, postcolonial studies, and popular culture.
The university is closely affiliated with two major research archives in the city of Tulsa, including the Helmerich Center for American Research (HCAR), which houses the Gilcrease Library and Archive, and contains more than 100,000 rare books, manuscripts, maps, photographs, and unpublished works. The collection dates back to the Spanish arrival to the Americas and includes materials related to the history of the New England colonies, early settlement of Canada, the founding of the American republic and ensuing national period. HCAR also holds a rich collection of manuscripts, photographs, maps, and books pertaining to the history of race relations, politics, agriculture, urbanization, energy, and migration in Oklahoma, the U.S. West, and the Americas more generally. Additionally, the University of Tulsa McFarlin Library Special Collections holds a wide variety of materials on World War I, Native American culture, urban race relations, and other topics.
The 2021 centennial commemoration of the Tulsa Race Massacre may also be of interest to prospective applicants, as well as the John Hope Franklin Center for Reconciliation. Further, the Cultures of the Americas (COTA) interdisciplinary faculty group offers opportunities for intellectual growth, professional development, and networking.
