Assistant Professor of Medieval or Renaissance Art
The Department of Art History at Skidmore College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor whose teaching and scholarship address the histories and theories of visual cultures and built environments in Europe at any time between the 5th and 16th centuries. Particular attention will be given to candidates whose courses would explore how European art engaged global networks of movement, exchange, and inter-cultural encounter. We are particularly interested in candidates from under-represented backgrounds who can add to the diversity and excellence of our academic community through their teaching, research, and service.
We seek a colleague who can offer introductory and intermediate courses spanning a range of periods, regions, and media as well as advanced courses in areas of specialization. Welcome areas of curricular expertise include architecture/urbanism, cartography, the history of dress, or the history of collecting. The position carries a teaching load of five courses per year.
PhD should be completed or expected by September 2019. Independent teaching experience is required. The application must include a cover letter, CV, sample syllabi, writing sample, and three letters of recommendation. It also must include a statement explaining how the candidate’s courses and pedagogy would engage questions of cultural diversity and foster active learning, inclusive discussion, and global awareness. Please provide specific examples.
