Warren Wilson College welcomes applicants for a faculty position in History. This is a full-time, junior-level position in an extended contract system with a 3-3 load beginning in August of 2022. We are seeking a dynamic teacher-scholar whose work highlights transnational, international, comparative, and/or world perspectives.

About the College:
Warren Wilson College, rooted in liberal arts education, is committed to providing educational programs that prepare graduates to engage in groundbreaking scholarship and creative work; pursue meaningful careers with professionalism; and lead purposeful lives dedicated to fostering a just, equitable, and sustainable world. Toward that end, the College utilizes an innovative educational approach that intentionally integrates academics and experiential learning (through campus work and community engagement) for a rich, challenging student experience. Our students matriculate through deliberately scaffolded courses and signature capstone experiences that combine intellectual foundations with experiential skill development and problem solving. In that vein, Warren Wilson College is committed to fostering students’ curiosity, empathy, and integrity by providing them with a variety of perspectives, mentors and role models. Therefore, we’re seeking and supporting an academically and culturally diverse faculty with a genuine interest in our unique approach to education and focus on inclusive excellence, as well as a willingness to fully participate in the life of the college.
To fulfill this mission, the College, through its Strategic Imperative for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI), is embarking on institutional initiatives that infuse DEI into all aspects of its functioning. Specifically, the College is unwavering in our commitment to the dignity of all people – particularly those populations who have been both historically oppressed and continue to experience systemic oppression. While we value the breadth of diversity necessary for a rich campus culture, we also recognize the particular challenge and opportunity for growth and leadership around race, noting that such a focus necessarily intersects with deepening efforts around other aspects of identity. We are committed to a culture of educational access and ensuring that students and employees from a diverse range of identities and experiences will thrive in this community. Fully living out this commitment involves incorporating DEI knowledge, skills, and practices in all academic programs and administrative capacities to advance inclusive excellence at all levels of the College. In alignment with our DEI commitment, we welcome and invite applicants who desire to, and possess the skills and experience to, advance this work. We welcome applications from members of racial/ethnic underrepresented groups (e.g., BIPOC/people of the global majority) and individuals who have experience working with diverse student populations (e.g., racial/ethnic, income, immigration status, sexual orientation/gender identification, etc.).
While the successful applicant will teach courses in world histories and specialize in at least one world region, the Department is open to expertise on all themes, including (but not exclusively) intellectual history, histories of race, gender, and sexuality, and international and/or comparative politics. In addition, faculty have opportunities to teach study-away courses, summer courses, and first-year seminars. Successful candidates will foster meaningful mentoring relationships with students; create interdisciplinary, experiential, and/or applied learning opportunities; contribute to the life of the Department and the College; and maintain a productive research agenda.
- PhD in History, or related field. ABD will be considered.
- One to two years of teaching experience.
- Teaching experience specializing in at least one world region such as Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin American, and/or Middle East
- Exhibited commitment to professional growth and scholarship.
- Demonstrated experience with advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in learning spaces. For instance, experience incorporating inclusive teaching modalities and working with diverse student populations (e.g., racial/ethnic, income, immigration status, sexual orientation/gender identification, etc.).
- Two or more years of teaching experience at the undergraduate level;
- Evidence of interdisciplinary, experiential, and/or applied learning pedagogies.
- Teaching experience specializing in two or more world regions such as Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin American, and/or Middle East
Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae and a cover letter which includes a discussion of your demonstrated engagement in diversity, equity, and inclusion in learning spaces. Applicants should also describe how their teaching, research, and/or creative scholarly activity connects to Warren Wilson’s distinct learning approach and community. First consideration will be given to candidates who apply by 5PM EST on November 28, 2021. Electronic submission is required.
Located on a beautiful 1,135-acre campus in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Asheville, North Carolina, the College has a working farm and forest. We enroll approximately 750 undergraduates and 100 graduates in a learning community committed to sustainable practices, social justice, and community engagement. We seek individuals with a genuine interest in our unique approach to education, and a willingness to fully participate in the life of the college.
