The iSchool (School of Library, Archival and Information Studies) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) is pleased to invite applications for the TD Visiting Professorship in Children’s Literature and Writing for Children, generously funded by the TD (Toronto Dominion) Bank. Located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people in Vancouver, Canada, UBC holds an international reputation for excellence in research, teaching, and learning.

The TD Visiting Professorship in Children’s Literature and Writing for Children supports the uniquely interdisciplinary Master of Arts in Children’s Literature Program, which draws on the expertise of faculty from the iSchool, as well as the departments of Language and Literacy Education, English, and the Creative Writing Program.

Applicants should have a significant record of academic accomplishment, scholarship, or literary reputation, and the ability to teach in one of program’s key pillars, namely:

• Children’s literature theory and criticism; • Literacy and the mediation of children’s texts; and • Writing, publishing and the book trade for children.

UBC has established innovative community-based Indigenous research and intercultural exchange, a position of success unmatched in North America.

Preference will be given to a scholar, author, illustrator, or literary professional who works in the area of Indigenous literature for children and youth. This Visiting Professorship offers the opportunity to work with talented and motivated graduate students by teaching one 3-credit course. The TD Visiting Professor will be welcomed into the research and teaching culture of the iSchool and UBC, and will be expected to engage with students and faculty, provide at least one public talk, exhibit or symposium on campus, and deliver a workshop or similar event in the community. Applicants are encouraged to include in their letter of application the proposed area of teaching, and how their scholarship or creative work can connect with the Indigenous youth of the greater Vancouver area.

The TD Visiting Professorship in Children’s Literature and Writing for Children funds this position for one term (four months) in the amount of CAD $35,000, inclusive of teaching and engagement with the public.
