FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

The Department of Art & Art History at Hunter College invites applications for a tenure-track professorial position (open rank) in the history of African American Art and/or the art of the African Diaspora. We are particularly interested in a scholar and teacher whose primary research is situated in the Black Atlantic, between 1600 and the 1960s. The successful candidate will join an Art History program with existing strengths in the art histories of the global eighteenth century, and nineteenth- and twentieth-century Latin America, Western Europe, and the United States.

The Department of Art & Art History at Hunter offers the BA and MA in Art History, and undergraduate and graduate degrees in Studio Art to an ethnically and economically diverse student body that reflects the population of the city of New York. In addition to a strong record of scholarly achievement appropriate to the level of appointment, we are seeking candidates with a commitment to the public university as a vehicle for educational equity, and a strong record of teaching and student engagement at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The department oversees four exhibition spaces, and offers MA and MFA students the opportunity to pursue an Advanced Certificate in Curatorial Studies; thus, experience with exhibition-making as a mode of art historical scholarship and a willingness to teach in conjunction with curatorial initiatives are desirable.

Responsibilities include ongoing scholarly research in the area of specialization; developing a curriculum in the art histories of the African Diasporas, and teaching those courses on the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as other foundational courses integral to our program as needed; advising MA theses and undergraduate honors projects; and service in the department, including, but not limited to, committee work, graduate admissions and examinations, and student recruitment and engagement.

QUALIFICATIONS

We seek a scholar with the Ph.D. in hand, in Art History, Africana Studies, American Studies, or related field, with a significant record of art historical scholarship appropriate to rank, and evidence of ongoing research. Strong preference for at least two years teaching experience beyond graduate assistantships.

COMPENSATION

CUNY offers faculty a competitive compensation and benefits package covering health insurance, pension and retirement benefits, paid parental leave, and savings programs. We also provide mentoring and support for research, scholarship, and publication as part of our commitment to ongoing faculty professional development.
