The Department of Art and Art History at Wesleyan University seeks candidates for a tenure-track position at the level of Assistant Professor in the arts and material culture of Africa, beginning July 1, 2022. The research focus and period of specialization are open; candidates who can teach across historical periods, including before 1900, and who can offer one or more courses on the arts of the African diaspora are welcome to apply. We define African arts broadly and will give full consideration to candidates focusing on visual and material culture who are trained in the disciplines of Art History, History, Architecture and Urban History, Archaeology, African Studies, or Anthropology. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Art History, History, Architecture, Archaeology, African Studies, Anthropology, or a related field in hand by the time of appointment to be hired as an Assistant Professor; a successful candidate may be hired as an Instructor if the candidate does not have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment, but will complete the Ph.D. within one year of hire. Wesleyan is a highly selective liberal arts college; the teaching load is 2/2. Additional duties include advising and mentoring students, carrying out a program of research, and participating in faculty governance at the departmental and university level. Wesleyan values both scholarship and teaching very highly, has a strong, diverse undergraduate student body, and offers a generous sabbatical program and competitive salaries and benefits.
