Assistant Professor, Humanities

A job for interdisciplinary people to know about:
The Department of Classics, Humanities & Italian Studies within the College of Liberal Arts seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor to start in Fall 2016. The Department of Classics, Humanities & Italian Studies is an interdisciplinary department, and for this position, in the the Humanities Program, we are particularly interested in applicants whose work treats the complexities of intercultural exchange, conflict, coexistence and communication in the Mediterranean Basin between 700 and 1500 CE. Applicants should have strong interests in notions of community, identity, and cultural belonging, and will collaborate in scholarship, teaching and curriculum development with others who work in different geographical, temporal or disciplinary areas. We seek scholars who focus on literature, cultural history, visual culture, performance, or philosophy, and we prefer those who work at the intersection of at least two disciplinary perspectives.
