Clark University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Art/ Archaeology of the Ancient or Medieval Mediterranean World, including North Africa. The teaching load is 4 undergraduate courses per year (2/2), including introductory courses and upper-level seminars in the area of expertise, as well as contributing to core courses in the art history major.
The successful candidate will be able to incorporate their own research interests into the classroom curriculum, and to mentor, advise, and generate enthusiasm among art history majors and students in related arts disciplines. Research experience that brings critical approaches to the study of ancient or medieval art of the Mediterranean world is highly desirable, and may involve topics such as colonialism/anti-colonialism; migration and translation; gender in built environments and/or artworks; material culture and issues of cultural assimilation; race and ethnicity; museum and cultural heritage issues surrounding ancient art. As a secondary field, we are interested in candidates who use innovative digital tools in their research programs, but this is not a requirement. Clark University is an institutional member of the Worcester Art Museum, allowing students and faculty first-hand study of ancient and medieval artworks and artifacts.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Art History or Archaeology, teaching experience, and active research record.
