Brown University’s Department of American Studies seeks applications for a tenure-track position in Latina/o Studies. Applicants should have a strong foundation in Latina/o Studies, which can come from a range of disciplinary homes, as well as experience with interdisciplinary scholarship.
We seek candidates whose primary focus is Latina/o Studies from a cultural, historical, and/or socio-political perspective. We are looking for scholars who demonstrate an interest in race, ethnicity, and public humanities because faculty in the Department of American Studies work closely with other academic units at Brown, particularly the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice, and the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage.
The appointment will begin on July 1, 2013, or as soon as possible thereafter.
The successful candidate will demonstrate research promise and accomplishments appropriate to rank, and be prepared to teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in hand or firmly expected by July 2013 and must show promise of significant scholarship and teaching ability.
For fullest consideration, please submit letter of application and CV no later than October 1, 2012. Should the committee require additional materials, a request will follow.
