Liberal Studies at New York University invites applications for a Clinical Assistant Professor: Arts, Cultures and the Environment: Global Antiquities / Global Middle Ages to begin September 1, 2023, pending administrative and budgetary approval.
The successful applicant will have a PhD in the humanities, broadly conceived (Comparative Literature, Art History, East Asian Studies, Near Eastern Studies, Classics, World Arts and Literatures, and related fields), with a focus on pre-modern environmental humanities. Candidates must be able to develop upper-division seminars concerning arts, cultures, and the environment, and teach with a global, interdisciplinary, and intersectional focus in the Arts and Cultures sequence of the Core Curriculum. This sequence requires exposure, training, and methodological background to teach undergraduate students about literature, as well as visual, sonic, and/or performance arts produced around the world, including in traditionally underrepresented areas from antiquity to early modern times.
All Liberal Studies full-time faculty hold renewable term contracts, initially three years, and later five years in duration. Faculty are eligible for promotion within the Clinical faculty ranks (Assistant, Associate, Full). Faculty normally teach three classes per semester, advise undergraduates, and contribute service to Liberal Studies and to the University.
