JOB: Asst Prof, Asian Art @ University of Richmond

The Department of Art & Art History at the University of Richmond invites applications for a tenure-track position in Asian Art History at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning August 2023. The successful candidate must demonstrate promise of scholarly distinction and excellence in teaching. The department welcomes any area and period of specialization in the field, but the candidate must be able to teach a survey of Asian Art. We seek candidates who display a knowledge of new methods and approaches to the study of art history, including curatorial practice, transculturalisms, and subalternity. Beyond the survey course, the successful candidate is expected to develop courses from introductory to upper levels that range from ancient to contemporary Asian art, depending on their specialization, and that advance the Art History program’s goal of making its curriculum more inclusive. The ideal candidate will also be able to build connections with our related departmental program in Visual and Media Arts Practice.

The teaching load is five courses per year, in addition to some supervision of senior theses. The teaching of the two-semester senior thesis seminar, which is the capstone course for our majors, rotates among the art history faculty, but all faculty act as readers each year. Student research is a cornerstone of both the department’s curriculum and that of the university. A completed Ph.D. is expected prior to appointment.

The University of Richmond is a private university located just a short drive from downtown Richmond, Virginia. Through its five schools and wide array of campus programming, the University combines the best qualities of a small liberal arts college and a large university. With nearly 4,000 students, an 8:1 student-faculty ratio, and 92% of traditional undergraduate students living on campus, the University is remarkably student-centered, focused on preparing students “to live lives of purpose, thoughtful inquiry, and responsible leadership in a global and pluralistic society.”

The University of Richmond is committed to developing a diverse workforce and student body, and to modeling an inclusive campus community which values the expression of difference in ways that promote excellence in teaching, learning, personal development, and institutional success. Our academic community strongly encourages applications that are in keeping with this commitment. For more information on the Department of Art and Art History, please visit: http://art.richmond.edu.

Applicants should apply online at http://jobs.richmond.edu and submit the following materials: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and goals, and a teaching statement. The teaching statement should articulate the candidate’s teaching philosophy, interests, and future professional development goals, as well as their involvement in and commitment to inclusive pedagogy. We strongly encourage applications from people of color, women, first-generation scholars, LGBTQ+ people, and members of other marginalized populations. Candidates for this position may be asked, at a later date, to provide the names and contact information for three references. Review of applications will commence October 15, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled. Questions about the position should be addressed to the Chair of the Search Committee, Professor Elena Calvillo (ecalvill@richmond.edu).
