The program in Art History at Fordham University invites applications for an Assistant Professor in the field of pre-1900 African, African American, Latin American, or Native North American art history, to begin in Fall 2022. The successful candidate will teach introductory art history survey courses as well as upper-level electives in areas of expertise at our Rose Hill campus located in the Bronx. She/he/they will be strongly encouraged to work closely with other departments such as African and African American Studies (AAAS) and the Latin American and Latino Studies Institute (LALSI) at Fordham, and to capitalize on cultural institutions located in New York City in teaching. Candidates should possess: a terminal degree in art history, a dynamic research program, and demonstrated effectiveness as a classroom teacher.
Cultural and intellectual pluralism is essential to the excellence of our academic program, and we strive to foster an academic culture and campus community that attracts and supports the development of stellar and diverse faculty reflecting the global environment in which we live and work. As such, we are especially interested in candidates whose specialties could lead to collaborations with faculty within the Department and across the University, and with organizations in the larger metropolitan area, especially within the overwhelmingly Latinx/Afro-Latinx and Afro-Diasporic communities of the Bronx.
Fordham is an independent, Catholic University in the Jesuit tradition committed to excellence through diversity. Fordham is an equal opportunity employer, and we especially encourage women, people of color, veterans and people with disabilities to apply.
We seek candidates with a demonstrated commitment both to undergraduate teaching and to scholarly research. PhD expected by June 1, 2022.
