The Program in Middle East Studies at Smith College invites applications for a one-year, full-time lecturer in modern Middle East History to begin July 1, 2022. The successful candidate will teach five courses during the 2022-2023 academic year on the modern history of the Middle East and North Africa, including an introductory course on modern history of the Middle East and a course focused on women and gender in the Middle East. A Ph.D. in History, or in Middle East Studies with relevant expertise, is required. Eligibility is limited to those who have received the Ph.D. within the past five years.
We seek a colleague with active research programs and teaching experience who will be responsive to the needs of Smith’s diverse and talented student body. Candidates who are open to teaching courses that challenge existing periodizations of modern Middle East history, contribute to rethinking the geographies and the transregional flows that shaped territorial spaces within the Middle East over time, and/or engage creatively with underrepresented subjects and themes are especially welcome to apply.
