The Department of Art History at Kenyon College is accepting applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Early Modern Art History. The appointment will begin in July 2020. Candidates should have expertise in the material culture of Early Modern Europe from the Baroque to the early Industrial Age. We seek a creative colleague who can immediately contribute to re-shaping the current curriculum. Applicants must be interested in offering a fresh, global perspective on permanent courses, including the Survey of Art, and developing new courses at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels. We are interested in teacher-scholars who can offer creative ways to engage with the Department’s Visual Resources Center, our Study Collection, and regional art museums located in Columbus and Cleveland. Candidates’ teaching and research should emphasize an interdisciplinary perspective that demonstrates interest in connections between Europe, the Americas, Africa, and/or Asia. We particularly welcome candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: architecture, museums, and pre–1900 print culture, including photography, prints, and manuscripts. Applicants should complement, not duplicate, current expertise of the department. Applicants must be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching, with evidence of support for Kenyon’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. The candidate will have the opportunity to play a leadership role in the College’s study abroad program in Rome, Italy.
Qualifications: A completed Ph.D. in Art History is required. Experience teaching beyond graduate assistantships is strongly desired at the time of hire. The successful candidate will also demonstrate potential for active scholarly engagement within their field of expertise, and to perform service to the College and the profession. The selected candidate will be expected to contribute to one of the interdisciplinary concentrations at the College, such as African Diaspora Studies, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, and Women and Gender Studies, depending on their particular expertise and interest.
Duties: Teach 3/2 load undergraduate courses, including second half of the Survey of Art and intermediate and upper-level seminars on topics from the Baroque to the early Industrial Age. The selected candidate will also serve as an advisor and mentor to students, including potential independent study and honor’s theses across the college; maintain an active program of research/scholarship leading to peer-reviewed publication; and perform service to the department and college.
