The Amherst College Department of Women’s and Gender Studies seeks to appoint a full-time Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor (tenure-track or tenured) to begin in the fall of 2010. “Images and Textualities” suggests a focus on interactive media, such as written or printed texts, pictures (including art) or film; the Global South is defined as Africa, the Middle East, Asia or Latin America. The person hired must have completed her/his PhD, in a humanities discipline, by the time of appointment. A degree from an interdisciplinary program such as Women’s Studies, Ethnic Studies, Black Studies, Cultural Studies, Film/Media Studies or the various Area Studies would be acceptable provided the person’s main expertise is in the humanities. We would also entertain applications from social scientists with a strong humanities focus, though our already existing strengths in history and political science preclude hiring in those two fields.
