Applications are welcome from scholars specializing in any aspect of the arts of the African Diaspora in the Americas (North, South, Central, and/or Caribbean) from the 16th century to the contemporary era.  

The successful candidate will demonstrate in-depth knowledge of African American visual and material culture, and a commitment to theoretical fluency and interdisciplinarity.  Potential areas of expertise might include: intersectional critiques of race and subjectivity; cultural poetics of gender and sexuality; religion, politics, and social identities; ritual and performance; cross-cultural exchange; spaces of thought, memory, and practice; communities imagined and improvised; cultural institutions both formal and informal. We welcome applications from scholars whose work contributes to Black Feminist, Black Queer and Trans studies, critical race theory, and/or postcolonial thought. Scholars whose practice addresses social justice in its historical and contemporary dimensions are encouraged to apply.

All applicants must be able to teach introductory and upper-level undergraduate lecture courses on African American art, as well as undergraduate and graduate seminars in their area of specialization. The standard departmental teaching load is 2/2; faculty also advise graduate research at the MA and PhD levels. We particularly encourage applications from candidates whose work crosses disciplinary boundaries, is methodologically innovative, is engaged with emerging fields, and can leverage or enhance the department's existing strengths in African, African diasporic, and American art. Our faculty and our undergraduate, MA, and PhD programs are organized around the idea of RASC/a, which stands for “Rhetorics of Art, Space, and Culture.” The rubric of RASC/a incorporates a critical approach to historical and new media, a broad understanding of visual technologies, and a particular interest in race and gender, architecture and the city, political uses of visual culture, and performance and ritual.

The successful candidate will participate in an expanding program of research and teaching in the Art History Department at SMU.  Faculty in the Department of Art History receive leaves, research and travel support.  In collaboration with colleagues in allied specialties in the Department of Art History, the candidate will assume an important role in shaping the future of research, curriculum, and pedagogy at the institution.  The candidate will ideally contribute to the overall vitality of the University through participation in interdisciplinary programs within the SMU Meadows School of the Arts and across campus.

Applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to educating and supporting diverse student populations are strongly encouraged to apply.

Working at Regis University: As Regis employees, we each have a responsibility to perform our work in alignment with the mission of the University, especially with its Catholic and Jesuit values. All employees are expected to both contribute to and strengthen the university's culture of respect, inclusion and equity for all members of our community.

Required Application Materials (submit the following to ruworks.regis.edu by November 15, 2021):

  • Letter of Application (cover letter) summarizing your interest and qualifications
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Teaching Philosophy, which includes a discussion of how you can contribute in tangible ways to Regis University's commitment to cultivating an inclusive and diverse community and culture in the classroom.

Applications submitted by November 15 will receive full consideration.

Questions can be addressed to William Sutton, Professor and Chair of the Art History Search Committee at wsutton@regis.edu.

About Regis University and the Fine & Performing Arts Department: The department invites applications from and is committed to hiring qualified candidates from groups that are underrepresented in the field of Art History and within our faculty body. We welcome candidates who bring diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious perspectives to their teaching and scholarship. Our department operates within Regis College which serves a diverse student population. As of fall 2020, 37.4% of our total student body identified as non-white and within that population 23.5% identify as Hispanic/Latino/a/x. Our fall 2020 Freshman class consisted of 55% of students who identified as non-white and 38.75% students who identified as Hispanic/Latino/a/x. We seek applicants eager to work with our increasingly diverse population.

As a Jesuit Catholic University we are open to hiring candidates of all faith backgrounds. In addition, we encourage applicants who identify as non-religious and find secular avenues to uphold Jesuit values. Though many of our faculty do identify as Catholic, a significant number of our current faculty body identify with other religious faiths, and many faculty identify as non-religious. We are also supportive of our LGBTQ+ faculty members.

Regis College is a small, teaching focused, liberal arts college housed within Regis University. We are located in North Denver just minutes from the Denver Art Museum and The Museum of Contemporary Art downtown. Our undergraduate student population has roughly 1750 students and class sizes range from 15-25 students. The Department of Fine and Performing Arts includes the Visual Art Program and the Music Program, and offers undergraduate Bachelor of Arts majors and minors in Visual Art, Art History, and Music. Our O'Sullivan Art Gallery on campus serves art history and art appreciation classes and presents six exhibitions each year including four during the semesters by regional and national artists, our senior thesis exhibition in April, and our heritage series during the summer. We look forward to exhibition ideas and input from our future colleague in this Art History position. Interdisciplinary collaboration is strongly valued in our department. The majority of students we serve as a department are non-majors taking art and music courses. Therefore applicants must be excited to work with a variety of knowledge sets and ability levels.

Position Summary: This position will be the sole full time Art Historian within a Fine Arts Department of eight full time faculty members (four in Visual Art and four in Music). As a result, our Art Historian position will have a great deal of autonomy in shaping the Art History program. The search is open to all specializations within Art History, but we would particularly welcome a candidate with a dual background in Western and Non-Western Art History (desirable areas of specialization/research include, but are not limited to Indigenous, African, Latin-American, Non-Western art history), who would feel comfortable teaching Non-Western upper division courses. This position will suit an art historian who identifies as a generalist and is excited to teach a wide variety of classes. We also encourage candidates who could offer upper division Art History courses on interdisciplinary topics such as inequality, race and ethnicity, and/or gender and sexuality.

Position Responsibilities: This position will involve teaching a full load of undergraduate courses each semester. The teaching load is typically 3 fall-semester courses and 3 spring-semester courses. Summer courses are available but not required. Service related responsibilities include: attending program/department meetings, advising Art History Majors for both coursework and thesis writing, conducting scholarly research, and providing service to the university. While Regis values research (and a record of sustained scholarship is required for tenure), a commitment to inclusive teaching is essential; the candidate must demonstrate the skills to work effectively with racially, socioeconomically, and religiously diverse student populations. Experience or interest in supporting student scholarship and collaborative research would also be welcome.

Required Courses:

  • FAHS 211 - Art History Survey - Prehistoric to Medieval
  • FAHS 212 - Art History Survey - Renaissance to Present

Islamic Art[]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA) - TT Assistant or Associate Professor (without tenure) - Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture[]

The Department of Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture (AKPIA) in the Department of Architecture. The position is supported by a generous gift from the Aga Khan as part of the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture (AKPIA) at MIT.


AKPIA is an academic leader in the study of architecture and urbanism in the Islamic world. Over the past four decades, the program has graduated leading scholars and practitioners in the field of Islamic Architecture worldwide. Over this period, AKPIA’s students have come from diverse academic and national backgrounds to pursue either an advanced SMArchS degree focused on architecture in the Islamic world, or a PhD degree within the framework of the History, Theory & Criticism program with a focus on the history, theory, and criticism of Islamic architecture or urbanism. The current search aims to build on this tradition while further expanding the scope and ambition of the Aga Khan program to address pressing issues in the Islamic built environment.


The successful candidate will be involved primarily in the study of architecture and/or urban design in the Islamic world, with an interest in design, urban, social, historical and/or environmental questions. They will aid the faculty of the program, and department, in further extending AKPIA’s ambition to address urgent issues facing cities and landscapes in the Islamic world. These include contemporary issues facing the architecture of Islamic societies in a global context; the climate crisis and its unequally distributed effects; the problems of mass urbanization; settlement and displacement, migration and forced displacement; heritage issues; and the quality and conditions of civic space. An important criterion in the search will be the ability of the candidate to engage and collaborate across the realms of design, planning, and contemporary and historical research necessary to engage such essential global challenges.


Candidates should demonstrate evidence of engagement with, and commitment to their work at the highest academic level. This may include works of research, scholarship, and/or design. The individual should be able to demonstrate an ability to develop and teach both graduate and undergraduate courses and supervise Masters and PhD work in an internationally recognized School of Architecture and Planning.


In keeping with MIT's culture of faculty self-governance and the Department's expectations of its faculty, the candidate is expected to participate in the intellectual life and administrative functioning of the department, and to contribute to the department's research and pedagogical agendas. The individual should enjoy collaborating with colleagues, be an articulate communicator, and be dedicated to help steer and support the rich, diverse culture of the Department. In pursuing research, teaching or practice, the individual should also be an effective representative of the department to the external world, in particular to agencies such as the Aga Khan Trust for Culture and the Aga Khan Development Network.


Dedicated to a humanistic and technologically sophisticated vision of design, history, and pedagogy, the Department of Architecture is uniquely positioned within the School of Architecture and Planning and within the larger institution of MIT, which strongly supports innovation and entrepreneurial activity, cross-disciplinary work, and diversity. The Department is actively committed to building and sustaining a diverse and culturally inclusive community of faculty, students, and staff, and a learning and research environment that welcomes and supports diverse interests, orientations, and work. The academic structure of the Department is unique in that each of its five disciplinary areas (Architecture + Urbanism; Art, Culture and Technology; Building Technology; Computation; and History, Theory and Criticism) work at equal intensity, across boundaries, and in collaboration to create an environment in which innovative research and scholarship fuse with the pedagogical agendas of the studios and ongoing design inquiry.


The Department engages productively in research and education alliances with the other units in the School (e.g., the Department of Urban Studies and Planning; Leventhal Center for Advanced Urbanism; Media Lab; Program in Media Arts and Sciences; Program in Art, Culture and Technology, and Center for Real Estate). In this exciting context, the Department is explicitly committed to excellence in both pedagogical and research activities. Believing that the cross current between the two creates a charged atmosphere for study and a critical edge for research, we are seeking candidates with an ability to thrive and lead in the Department.


Qualifications:

·         The position is designed for a junior or developing scholar for whom a hire at the Assistant or Associate without Tenure level is appropriate. An ability to advance a teaching and research agenda in an academic environment are essential.

·         Candidates should hold a terminal degree in architecture or an allied discipline and show proven excellence in teaching, scholarship, design practice or a combination thereof. A Doctoral degree is preferred but not required.

·         Prospective candidates should have demonstrated accomplishments that qualify them for the above responsibilities, especially familiarity with countries and regions with substantial Islamic populations and their social, cultural, environmental, and architectural contexts. An advanced degree in architecture is required, either a professional master’s degree or doctoral degree, as well as extensive experience in an Islamic context; fluency in at least one language of the Islamic world is strongly preferred.

Application Instructions

Interested applicants should submit: a statement of interest outlining their vision and qualifications for the position, including major professional, research, pedagogical goals and achievements; a curriculum vitae; three current references with contact information; and a maximum 16 page, letter-sized dossier of professional, research or scholarly work.
