JOB: Visiting Asst Prof of Premodern Art & Architectural History @ Kenyon

Kenyon College, a highly selective, nationally ranked liberal arts college in central Ohio, invites applications for a one-year position in Art History at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor beginning in July 2021.

Description

The successful candidate will specialize in the art and architecture of the pre-modern or early modern world (before c. 1800). Specialists in art and architectural traditions outside of Europe are particularly encouraged to apply. We are interested in teacher-scholars who can offer ways to engage with the Department’s Visual Resources Center, our Study Collection, and regional art museums in Columbus and Cleveland. The successful applicant will be able to teach broadly in their field, as well as one or more of the following areas: Pre-Columbian, Latin American, Native American, Oceanic, Ancient Near Eastern, or African art. The selected candidate will teach five total classes. In addition to teaching ARHS 110 Introduction to Western Art: Ancient to Medieval, and ARHS 113 Survey of Architecture in the fall semester, the selected candidate will teach three spring courses that emphasize their research and teaching specialties. Applicants should complement, not duplicate, current expertise of the department.

Application Process

To apply, candidates should visit the online application site found at:

http://careers.kenyon.edu

Applications must include: 1) a cover letter describing teaching experience, research interests, teaching philosophy, and information on ways that issues and practices related to diversity, inclusion, and equity have been or will be included in teaching, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) unofficial graduate transcript(s), 4) a list of three references with detailed contact information, including email address (at least one reference must speak to the candidate’s teaching experience). Note: references will only be contacted for those candidates who advance to the latter stages of the search.

Review of applications will begin May 3 and will continue until the position is filled.
