NOTES:

  • THIS IS A BOGUS SEARCH, DONT WAST YOUR TIME APPLYING. ITS GOING TO THE INSIDE CANDIDATE WHO HAS BEEN TEACHING THERE FOR YEARS. 
  • Just because there's an inside candidate doesn't mean it's a "bogus search" or a waste of time. On the contrary, not applying would be a wasted opportunity. There's always a chance the inside person is not the shoo-in you assume her to be -- and even if she is, at least you've had a chance to get your work into the hands of the committee. Take all occasions to let people know who you are, even if you're a long shot!
  • True, this is a good opportunity to network. But, I know the search chair and it is a pity that the dean insisited that they do a search at all. 
  • I couldn't agree more. I've seen many searches where there is a presumed choice (either an inside or outside candidate) that shifts direction when a shinier object enters the room. Even if there's an inside candidate, people should apply anyway.

Connecticut College (CT) - TT Assistant Professor in History of Architecture and UrbanismEdit

Connecticut College seeks applications for a tenure-track position in the Department of Art History and Architectural Studies beginning in fall 2016. The successful candidate will have expertise in the history of architecture and urbanism. The sub-specialty is open, but preference will be given to scholars whose focus is architecture and urbanism after 1800. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in art history or a related field, a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching and an active research program.

The successful candidate will be conversant with current theoretical approaches and eager to highlight theory across the spectrum of courses to be taught: the survey of Western architecture from the Renaissance to the present, intermediate electives, and advanced seminars. The Department of Art History and Architectural Studies is committed to interdisciplinarity, and the major program in Architectural Studies is its most broadly interdisciplinary component: about 70% of the elective courses that can fulfill requirements for the major in Architectural Studies are offered by departments and programs other than Art History and Architectural Studies. The candidate will offer courses that contribute to the college’s new Connections program.

Recognizing that intellectual vitality and diversity are inseparable, the College is continuing with what has been a very successful initiative to diversify its faculty, student body and curriculum. The College seeks creative scholars excited about working in a liberal arts setting, with its strong focus on engaged teaching, participation in shared governance, and active involvement in an institution-wide advancement of diversity.

The College’s commitment to excellence in teaching is manifest in the programs on campus devoted to issues of pedagogy, in particular those of the Joy Shechtman Mankoff Center for Teaching and Learning. Equally important to both the department and the College are the prospects for and the encouragement of faculty research, from small grants-in-aid to subsidizing student collaboration on faculty projects. The generous sabbatical policy (for every six semesters of teaching, one semester of leave at 80% of salary) affords further opportunity for research and writing.

Tenure-track faculty teach a 3-2 load, 2-2 in the first year. In addition to providing all faculty with strong ongoing support for teaching and research, the College offers these resources for pre-tenured faculty: a summer stipend for the first two years, a supplementary research fund, and a semester’s sabbatical after a successful third-year review. AA/EEO.

Applicants should submit: (1) a CV, with the names and contact information of three references. Letters of reference should be sent directly to the Interfolio address listed below; (2) a cover letter of not more than two pages stating research interests, teaching philosophy, and two proposed course titles; (3) a sample syllabus; and (4) teaching evaluations, if available, to Joseph D. Alchermes, Chair of Art History and Architectural Studies, at: apply.interfolio.com/30675.  The appointment begins July 1, 2016.

Review of applications will start December 1, 2015, and continues until the position is filled.

Preliminary Interviews:

Campus Interviews:

Offer: Made and accepted by Sugata Ray (whom UMN succeeded in poaching from Berkeley): http://arthist.umn.edu/news/

  • Poached? Really? An extremely lucky junior professor manages to land one of the most coveted jobs of 2011 at a premier R1 university and somehow UMN, from where he received his PhD, is able to seduce him back...? That makes him and his former advisers look highly suspect. Something's fishy. But, congratulations to him in any case.    
  • I'd bet money that the original post above (about the candidate being poached) was actually made by the "poachee" himself. And yes, the whole process seems suspect.
  • I don't think he was "poached." As far as I know his partner, who also completed her PhD at UMN, works as a curator in the Minneapolis area. She was a candidate for the Global Modernist job at Berkeley, after Ray was hired, but ultimately didn't get that job. I'd imagine that this is about job stability and geography for the both of them. Likewise, I think it's a smart hire on the part of UMN, rather than anything "fishy." They get a stellar scholar, who will almost surely be a long-term faculty member because of the spousal context. 
  • Let's tell it like it is: Ray's hire at UCB was contentious from the get go. Understandibly, the search committee was deeply divided (tepid junior scholar from UMN). That Mrs./Dr. Ray was not hired at UCB was no surprise to anyone. It was a sign that he was not universally loved by his colleagues. The anti-Ray contingent had spoken. According to some senior a.h. faculty at UCB, his tenure was highly doubtful. Ray should count his lucky stars that that he has advisers who are so supportive that they would secure him a t.t. job at their university (while the department has been divided in recent years, the current chair is pro-Asher. Also,who was the chair of this hiring committee?) Moreover, Mrs. Ray too should be grateful that her former adviser still has enough pull at MIA to secure her a job, as he did for the former curator of S. Asian art who has since gone onto greener pastures. UMN grads may post what they will. But, while both Rays' hires may not be "fishy" (far clearer than that!) we all know who they should thank for their respective positions.  
  • ^^^Voice of truth and reason. Just to add: the MIA's most recent hire has little to no curatorial experience, in contrast with the other, much more curatorially experienced candidates who were up for that plum position. Lucky indeed. Though let's not be so naive as to believe that academia and the museum world are actually meritocracies. One needs advocates who have pull.
  • It's funny how all the bitter Bettys emerge in situations like this. Not only that, but they are in intimate communication with "senior a.h. faculty at UCB" about the tenure status of junior professors. I'm guessing these posters also feel they were more deserving of the positions in question? Let's be real though, both of the scholars being discussed have excellent CVs (great publications, fellowships and postdocs at the Getty, Goethe Institute, Max Planck, ICI, etc). Coming here to vent your Ivy League ressentiment just makes you look bad. Now I know that it's scandalous that a "tepid junior scholar" from such a shamefully bad school was given a good job, but at the end of the day he was selected by the Berkeley hiring committee. Now he's been hired at UMN; everything else is tacky speculation. 
  • The tone of the impassioned post immediately above indicates it was indended to definitively shut down this thread and have the last word. But, I too would like to have my say. I am long tenured, have served on faculty search, tenure and fellowship selection committees, so I have much experience in these areas as well as being able to help demystify these aspects of academia for more junior scholars. Regarding the widespread criticism of Sugata Ray and Atreyee Gupta's hires, from what I have heard over the years, it stems less from their non-elite academic backgrounds. After all, Catherine Asher, Deborah Hutton, Rebecca Brown and Deepali Dewan are all UMN grads and no one would challenge their impeccable scholarly credentials. My understanding is that the South Asian art history community questions Ray's hires precisely because, contrary to what the above poster/ "poachee"/ "poachee"'s wife (?) claims, Ray does NOT deliver, not at the level demanded of faculty at Berkeley. Is is certainly laudable being published in Art Bulletin and that alone may be enough to land hire and ultimately, tenure, at an institution like UMN. However, come tenure time at an elite institution like Berkeley (where tenure committees closely read publications) it would not have weighed highly. Many (myself included) question how the article could have been published by A.B. at all. Regarding Ray and Gupta's fellowships, I will let you junior scholars in on a dirty little secret. Take note: letters of recommendation matter. A lot! I have not read the Ashers' letters for these two, but I have seen their letters for some of their other students. In each case, they are over the top effusive. Each candidate is the next best thing, guaranteed, which is exactly what advisers' letters SHOULD be! In a pool of typically lackluster reference letters, the Ashers' stand head and shoulders above, even when their students may not. Moreover, fellowships beget more fellowships. Once you have one big one, it looks very impressive to committees. If you are not having any luck in the fellowship/ grant market, look into your letters if you can. I will say that from what I have seen over the last several years, letters from S. Asian a.h. faculty at Columbia, U.T., UCLA (not Mathur, who also writes for Ray, BTW) and Islamic art historians at Harvard and Penn, they could care less about their students. Shameful! turning to Ray's Berkeley hire, the committee were interested in the furthest from Joanna Williams they could find because she had been "difficult" for years after her surgery, and widely personally disliked by her colleagues. Add to that the Ashers' characteristic gushing letters, and you have a hiring committee that sits up and takes notice. The Ashers' letters would also have weighed heavily because committees at R1 institutions do their homework and make it their business to know who the leading scholars in the field are. The Ashers are two. Nevertheless, as post 5 above claims, I too heard that the hire was deeply contentious and that tenure was doubtful. Ray's stars alligned when his adviser retired, his adviser's wife chaired the replacement hiring committee (UMN's a.h. department has a history of bitter inter-faculty fighting and the previous chair vowed that Rick would not be replaced after his retirement). Yes, as post 6 notes, Gupta's hire is ludicris! Indeed, there were far more qualified applicants who possess years of experience working with not only S. Asian, but also S.E. Asian art. Gupta brings NONE of these qualifications to her position.  Finally, I have heard complaints about Ray and Gupta's behavior over the years. They are extremely arrogant and downright rude to many of their colleagues at ACSAA and other conferences. This really irks many and may be a good reason why the above posters delight in Ray's fall. Take note: a little humility goes a long way! 
  • Regardless of the supposed anonymity of this forum, I question the above poster's judgment in airing confidential information about the tone and content of candidates' recommendation letters. Can we just let this rest now?

First, I want to write without the cloak of anonymity: It’s me, Rick Asher. Second, I want to address some of the concerns recounted above. I recognize that in a highly competitive job market, one that offers far fewer positions than there are excellent candidates, the tendency might be to assume that politics or personal favoritism stands behind selections. That certainly was not the case at Minnesota; I doubt that it was in the recent hires by other institutions. Now to the points raised:

1. The issue of a chair being pro-Asher or anti-Asher doesn’t pertain. Since I chaired the department, we have had two chairs, first Steven Ostrow for nine years, and now Jane Blocker. Both, I think, have been outstanding, and both have managed to chair without fostering factions.
2. My imagined role in the search at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts helped Atreyee get the position. My role was simply having tea with each of the candidates for 15 minutes at the conclusion of their on-site visit. It was a social tea intended to allow them to ask questions about the University or the community. My opinion regarding the candidates was neither solicited nor offered. I wish, however, the museum would consult my departmental colleagues more frequently. When we searched for an East Asianist, a museum curator was a full and equal member of the search committee. Museums may operate rather differently. I just don’t know much about museum culture.
3. My role in the search for my replacement. I had none. I didn’t write for Sugata, though I did write with great enthusiasm – heartfelt enthusiasm, I stress – for others. During the search process, I was permitted only to attend the lectures, not even to ask questions after the talks. The candidates all had a dinner at our home. I was exiled from those dinners (though I did get to eat junk food those nights, food that otherwise would have been off limits). And I never once discussed the candidates with Cathy, who did chair the search. We operate very differently as professionals than we do as husband and wife.If it would have been appropriate to express an opinion, I would have done so to the full committee, not just to Cathy. But it was not appropriate, and so I remained silent, grateful that I was permitted to attend the job talks because the three I heard (I was at CAA when Sugata spoke) were excellent, and I learned a great deal from all of them.
4. The scholarly credentials of our former students (the post refers to Deborah, Rebecca and Deepali) has nothing to do with us or with the University of Minnesota. Each of them has worked hard to make outstanding contributions to scholarship and to the profession more generally. I think of graduate students, not just ours, but all art history graduate students – in this department and elsewhere – as colleagues. I’ve certainly learned every bit as much from them as they have from me. The Economics Department at Minnesota refers to their graduate students as the junior faculty. I like that notion, though even the term "junior" may be misplaced.
5. The department has a long history of inter-faculty fighting, one entry says. True, we did deal with two contentious faculty members, something that helped bond the others in both social and intellectual companionship. But when one of them retired, early in Steven Ostrow’s tenure as chair, that antagonism was largely put aside, and this is now a department with a set of common intellectual agendas. Steven Ostrow, by the way, was the one who made the South Asia position the department’s first priority; Jane Blocker assumed the chair position when the position was released and the search conducted.
6. My gushing letters. I write for a great many across the field of South Asian art history, not just my own students. If the letters sound gushing, that’s because we’re blessed with outstanding young scholars, and I want to see all of them in satisfying positions that allow them – you, that is – to share academic insights and to shape the next generation of learners, both undergraduate and graduate as well as musem-goers. I suppose I should add that I write willingly because prep for writing forces me to read the scholarship of those for whom I write. Wow. I’m almost invariably impressed, and my own thinking has been significantly shaped by what I’ve read.
7. Finally, Joanna Williams is described as “difficult”. For half a century I have known her both personally and professionally, though not as a departmental colleague. I find it hard to imagine that she’s difficult. True, Sugata’s scholarship is very different from Joanna’s, but that’s as much a matter of the generation as anything else. All of us in this field, whether employed or not (and, remember, as a retiree, I’m also unemployed), have the good fortune of colleagues and mentors engaged in a quest for knowledge, in sharing what we have learned or imagine we have learned. How different this is from so many fields in our discipline, where scholars are secretive and too often nasty, working to undermine the research of others, imagining that somehow it will serve to promote their own work.

In short, we’re fortunate in every way except the job market. And we need to work collectively to make that situation better. I’m certainly committed to doing so. Rick

School of Art History, Salary: £38,896 - £47,801 per annum, Fixed Term: 5 years in the first instance, Start: 1 September 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter

Details: We are seeking to appoint a full-time lecturer in Iranian Islamic Art History. Applications are invited from candidates whose research interests lie broadly within the spectrum of the Islamic art and/or architecture of the Iranian world, broadly defined. Candidates will therefore be expected to have the centre of gravity of their research squarely in the Iranian world in the Islamic period. Evidence of breadth of interest within the field of Iranian Islamic art and/or architecture is highly desirable, and a firm grounding in Iranian studies generally (e.g. in the fields of language, history, literature, religion) will be an advantage. (Please note that we are not seeking a candidate who is interested in Iranian Islamic art as an offshoot of another field.)  
You should already have, or be close to completing, a Ph.D.  You should be able to provide evidence of your research abilities in the form of publications of internationally-recognized quality as well as a programme of on-going research that will contribute to our reputation as one of the leading Art History departments in the UK (we were ranked 2nd among Art History departments in REF 2014). Other indications of research activity (e.g. grants awarded, conference papers delivered, exhibitions organized) will also be taken into account, as will evidence that your research has had or will have an impact beyond academia.  
You will be expected to offer attractive and accessible undergraduate courses on Iranian art and/or architecture, giving students as much first-hand experience of works as possible. You will also be required to contribute lectures on our first and/or second-year survey modules, which currently deal with the development of Western art, architecture and ideas. Working with postgraduates, both teaching M.Litt. classes and supervising Ph.D. research, will also be a vital part of your role. More broadly, it is expected that the successful candidate will participate in the activities of the Institute of Iranian Studies at the University of St Andrews. 

This is a fixed term post for 5 years in the first instance, with possibility of extension. Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr Julian Luxford: 01334 462394 or jml5@st-andrews.ac.uk. We prefer applicants to apply online at:  www.vacancies.st-andrews.ac.uk/welcome.aspx
