Job Opening – Open Rank – Global Arts Studies (08/2012)
University of California, Merced
School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts: Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor of Art History and Visual Culture
The School of Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts (SSHA) invites applications for an open-rank, tenure-track faculty position to begin July 2013. We seek candidates whose scholarship focuses on artistic cultures and traditions (pre-20th century) outside of Europe and the U.S., especially the Middle East, South or Southeast Asia. Candidates whose scholarship and/or teaching is globally comparative and grounded in a critical understanding of Euro-American art history are particularly desirable. We are particularly interested in candidates who are committed to challenging boundaries of discipline, genre, geography and history, and to working with colleagues in music studies and other fields to develop a global arts studies program that is thoroughly interdisciplinary.
