|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Oregon, United States|
|Position:||Tenure Track Faculty|
The Department of Art at Reed College invites applications for a tenure-track position in visual and material cultures of the 19th and 20th centuries. As we look to expand our department’s current curricular offerings (https://www.reed.edu/art/faculty-staff/index.html), we are especially interested in South Asian, African, Latin American, Indigenous, or Oceanic material and visual cultures, as well as research that expands beyond area studies and the nation form. We welcome candidates with training in a wide range of disciplines and/or who have taken non-traditional career paths. We anticipate making the appointment at the assistant professor level. The successful candidate will teach a variety of courses of their own creation and contribute to Reed’s interdisciplinary Humanities program, with initial appointment in Introduction to the Humanities (https://www.reed.edu/humanities/hum110/index.html), a writing-intensive, year-long course required of all first year students and taught in small seminars. Teaching duties also include advising year-long senior theses, teaching in a combined studio and art history department, and in some years teaching your own version of the department’s introductory theories and methods course and/or our Junior Seminar. Candidates should receive their PhD by August 2022.
