University of Minnesota (MN) - Open Rank, Art of the Long & Enduring Nineteenth CenturyEdit

The Department of Art History in the College of Liberal Arts invites applications for two full-time, open rank faculty positions in Global Art History beginning in August 2019. Both positions begin fall semester 2019 (08/26/2019).

Appointments will be 100% time over the nine-month academic year (late-August to late-May). Appointments will be at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor, tenured associate professor, or tenured professor, depending on qualifications and experience, and consistent with collegiate and University policy. Both positions are open rank, but only one appointment may be made at the level of tenured associate professor or tenured full professor.

The Department of Art History seeks two new faculty members to join a dynamic department with a strong commitment to global art history and to critical and theoretical engagement with art-historical methods and practice. As a public, land-grant university, we seek candidates who will challenge undergraduate and graduate students to develop skills of art-historical literacy; who are committed to excellence and creativity in writing; and who will promote student engagement through initiatives such as our undergraduate minor in museum and curatorial studies. Our new hires will develop curricula that complement existing geographical and historical coverage in the department, work collaboratively with their colleagues in art history as well as faculty in other departments and programs, and participate in the interdisciplinary life of the College.

One of the two hires will be a scholar whose research centers on the long and enduring nineteenth century. The ideal candidate will have a track record of work that views art and its history in light of the era’s slow-moving and still-ongoing transformations: including industrialization, imperialism, corporatization, and enslavement -- as well as the rise of modern museology and art history. This work may focus on any geographic or cultural area; our preference is for scholarship that adopts a global and/or translocal perspective. We are especially keen to identify inventive scholars whose teaching and publications rupture traditional art historical categories and specializations, so as to bring forward artistic practices and objects that have otherwise been long overlooked. Our new colleague’s efforts will be matched and supported by ongoing movements underway at Minnesota (both in the department and campus wide): including the Masters in Heritage Studies and Public History, the RIGS Initiative (Race, Indigeneity, Gender, and Sexuality Studies), and the Humanities Engagement Hub.

Responsibilities include: engaging actively in research; teaching courses on all undergraduate and graduate levels; the supervision of senior projects, M.A. qualifying papers, and doctoral dissertations; and contributions to service appropriate for the rank of appointment to the department, college, University, and profession.
The Standards for Promotion and Tenure in the Department of Art History are available at:
https://faculty.umn.edu/sites/faculty.umn.edu/files/art_history.pdf
The Workload Principles and Guidelines for Regular Faculty in the College of Liberal Arts are available at: https://sites.google.com/a/umn.edu/cla-intranet/ofaa/resources/workload-principles--guidelines
Faculty in the College of Liberal Arts are expected to maintain an active program of scholarly research; develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses; advise students; and contribute service appropriate for the rank of appointment to the department, college, university, and profession. Salary is competitive.

A Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in Art History or related field (ABD considered but Ph.D. is strongly preferred by appointment start date); college/university-level teaching experience; a promising record of research and publication.

Candidates will be evaluated according to a) overall quality of their academic preparation and scholarly work, b) relevance of their scholarly research to the department’s academic priorities and fields of inquiry, c) evidence of commitment to teaching and skills as a teacher, and d) strength of recommendations.

Applications must be submitted online. To be considered for this position, please click the Apply button and follow the instructions. You will have the opportunity to complete an online application for the position and attach a cover letter and resume. Additional documents may be attached after application by accessing your "My Activities" page and uploading documents there. This position requires that you attach 1) a cover letter, 2) curriculum vitae, and 3) writing sample: an article, essay, or chapter of approximately 25-40 pages. In addition to the materials submitted electronically, applicants are asked to arrange for three letters of recommendation to be e-mailed to the Department of Art History at: farse003@umn.edu

The three letters of recommendation should be addressed to: Professor Jennifer Marshall, Chair, Global Art History Search, Department of Art History, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Applications will be accepted through November 15, 2018.

The teaching load is six courses per year (two per term). The person who holds this position will also be expected to advise students and supervise senior individualized projects (SIPs). The successful candidate will demonstrate a high aptitude for and interest in undergraduate teaching, a commitment to the liberal arts, and the ability to establish an ongoing record of publications. PhD (or evidence it will be completed by September 1, 2019) in Art History, WGS, Cultural Studies, Critical Ethnic Studies or other related field is required. Salary is competitive and consistent with level of experience.

Earlham Collge (Indiana) - TT Assistant Professor of Art HistoryEdit

Earlham College invites applications for a full-time tenure track position in the Art Department at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning August 2019.  Responsibilities include teaching six courses per year: a two semester Art History survey course each year and four additional offerings in Art History.  The curriculum in Art History serves the needs of Art majors as well as the general education curriculum of the college.

Earlham College is a small liberal arts college with an enrollment of about 1100 students.  Recognized nationally for the quality of its academic programs, the college attracts a student body that is national and international in composition.  The Art Department at Earlham College is unusual among liberal arts schools, because it emphasizes both craft and art.  Along with majors, many students who are non-majors take art courses at all levels and sometimes are the majority of students in the class. Each art major at Earlham chooses art history, ceramics, drawing, metalsmithing, painting, photography or fiber arts as an area of focus.  In addition to building competency in a focus, each student also takes Making Art, and art history courses.  Seniors complete a senior project, which generally leads to a group exhibition held in Leeds Gallery or the presentation of a research paper. Each art major completes an internship as well.   We encourage art students to participate in one of Earlham’s many off-campus programs.  Over 60% of our students spend a semester or more off campus in a great variety of places such as as London, Japan and New Zealand.  Each year several students pursue the option of spending a term engaged in an internship or apprenticeship in New York City, under the auspices of the NY Arts Program, a program operated by Ohio Wesleyan/GLCA. The college also offers a semester of intense studio practice at Penland School of Craft.  PhD preferred.  An interest in teaching undergraduates in a liberal arts context is essential.  Responsibilities include close work with students, working cooperatively with members of the art, music and theatre arts faculties in furthering the cause of the arts in the College, and after the first year, advising and committee service.   Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, a teaching statement and a 300-500 word statement describing your ability to contribute to the advancement of Earlham’s goals of being a diverse and inclusive institution.

Review of applications will commence November 1.

Appointments will be at the rank of tenure-track assistant professor, tenured associate professor, or tenured professor, depending on qualifications and experience, and consistent with collegiate and University policy. Both positions are open rank, but only one appointment may be made at the level of tenured associate professor or tenured full professor.

The Department of Art History seeks two new faculty members to join a dynamic department with a strong commitment to global art history and to critical and theoretical engagement with art-historical methods and practice. As a public, land-grant university, we seek candidates who will challenge undergraduate and graduate students to develop skills of art-historical literacy; who are committed to excellence and creativity in writing; and who will promote student engagement through initiatives such as our undergraduate minor in museum and curatorial studies. Our new hires will develop curricula that complement existing geographical and historical coverage in the department, work collaboratively with their colleagues in art history as well as faculty in other departments and programs, and participate in the interdisciplinary life of the College.

One of the two hires will be a scholar of pre-1800 art from any region of interconnected Asia broadly defined—including the Mediterranean region, East Africa, the Middle East, Indian Ocean, and East and Southeast Asia. The area of expertise is therefore open, and should complement areas already represented by faculty in the department. We invite applicants whose work emphasizes methodological innovation, and who are keen on collaborating with colleagues in the department and across the university working on pre-modern periods. The scholarship and teaching interests of the ideal candidate will include transregional and interdisciplinary approaches. Significant resources on campus in this regard include the Consortium for the Study of the Premodern World, Center for Early Modern History, and the Center for Medieval Studies.

Responsibilities include: engaging actively in research; teaching courses on all undergraduate and graduate levels; the supervision of senior projects, M.A. qualifying papers, and doctoral dissertations; and contributions to service appropriate for the rank of appointment to the department, college, University, and profession. The Standards for Promotion and Tenure in the Department of Art History are available at: https://faculty.umn.edu/sites/faculty.umn.edu/files/art_history.pdf. The Workload Principles and Guidelines for Regular Faculty in the College of Liberal Arts are available at: https://sites.google.com/a/umn.edu/cla-intranet/ofaa/resources/workload-principles--guidelines. Faculty in the College of Liberal Arts are expected to maintain an active program of scholarly research; develop and teach undergraduate and graduate courses; advise students; and contribute service appropriate for the rank of appointment to the department, college, university, and profession. Salary is competitive.

A Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in Art History or related field (ABD considered but Ph.D. is strongly preferred by appointment start date); college/university-level teaching experience; a promising record of research and publication.

Candidates will be evaluated according to a) overall quality of their academic preparation and scholarly work, b) relevance of their scholarly research to the department’s academic priorities and fields of inquiry, c) evidence of commitment to teaching and skills as a teacher, and d) strength of recommendations.

How to Apply: Applications must be submitted online. To be considered for this position, please click the Apply button and follow the instructions. You will have the opportunity to complete an online application for the position and attach a cover letter and resume. Additional documents may be attached after application by accessing your "My Activities" page and uploading documents there.

  • This search was conducted last year, 2017-18, and two years ago,2016-2017 . Here are the notes from 2016-2017:
  • This is a position at a Baptist University which clearly states that religion can be used a criteria in their search. Note that LBGTQIA applicants are not included in their list of anti-discrimination laws .
  • I was told during my interview, which lasted about five minutes, that they will only hire a practicing Christian.(12/3)
  • I was told the same - word of warning to the finalists yet to interviewed that you will be disqualified immediately if you are not a practicing Christian. Disingenuous of the search to not state this upfront, and a waste of their and applicants' time. The right to "lawfully consider religious practice as a criterion" is not the same as outright discrimination based on religion, which disqualifying candidates based on religious practice, in fact, is. (12/3)
  • OP here. I think they are legally allowed to do this and have been doing so since at least 2014. I know two other people who have had the exact same experience as you and me.

Native American ArtEdit

University of New Mexico (NM) - TT Assistant Professor of Native American ArtEdit

Probationary appointment leading to a tenure decision. 1.0 FTE. Service and committee work expected. The successful candidate will be expected to develop collaborative working relationships with Native American academic units and groups on campus, and with Indigenous communities off campus locally and in the surrounding region.

The Art History program at UNM is unique in the nation, if not the world, for its concentration in Arts of the Americas. To date, this is the only program with full-time faculty in Pre-Hispanic Art, Spanish Colonial Art, Modern/Contemporary Latin American Art, Native American Art, U.S. and African American Art, and until recently, U.S. Latinx/Chicanx Art. Given the Indigenous presence across the Americas, Native American art overlaps with and is relevant to all of these other areas of specialization. Additionally, areas of study outside of Art History, both in the Department of Art and the College of Fine Arts, intersect with Native American art history, such as Land Arts of the American West, Pueblo Pottery, Studio Ceramics, Art and Ecology, and Ethnomusicology.

The longstanding presence of Native Pueblos and their cultural impact in the region make this area an ideal location for the study of Native history, culture, and art, both historical and living. Also, the presence of museums and community centers, such as the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque and the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, and including other nearby centers, such as Sky City Cultural Center and Haak’u Museum at Acoma Pueblo, among others, are invaluable resources not found anywhere else.

Qualifications

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Ph.D. in the history of Native American Art or related discipline by the time of appointment. One year of University level teaching experience a instructor of record.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: Demonstrated ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Native American Art History.

Knowledge of current technologies and applications to teaching. Collegiality.

INSTRUCTIONS: All applicants must apply online at the University of New Mexico web site: hr.unm.edu, Req #6395.
