Every year the English department organizes the Undergraduate Conference on Multiethnic Literatures of the Americas (UCMLA), a successful local conference with potential for growth. Now in its sixth year, UCMLA has foregrounded multiethnic literatures, provided a platform for presentation of undergraduate scholarship in the field, gathered graduate students and faculty together in event planning, and brought to campus such writers and critics as Cherrie Moraga, Roxane Gay, Samiya Bashir, and Jorge Huerta among others as keynote speakers.

University of California, San Diego (CA) - Assistant Professor 20th-century contemporary American and/or Asian-American Lit. - CAMPUS INTERVIEW SCHEDULEDEdit

The Department of Literature within the Division of Arts & Humanities at the University of California, San Diego (http://literature.ucsd.edu) seeks candidates specializing in Asian American literature and culture whose research, teaching, and service demonstrate commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education and accomplishments or concrete plans in areas contributing to diversity, equity and inclusion, and a desire to play a leadership role in advancing UC San Diego’s commitment to achieving excellence and diversity. We welcome applications at every level of the assistant professor rank. The level of appointment will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

The organization of the Department of Literature is unique within the University of California system in that it is neither a department of English nor a department of Comparative Literature as either is traditionally construed. Rather, from its beginning, the Literature Department at UCSD has aimed to be a department of world literatures and cultures within a single unit committed to the multilingual, historical study of the connections and conflicts between cultures and society. We seek candidates who have demonstrated the highest standards of scholarly research and professional activity and who will actively participate in our department's multilingual, transnational projects.
