Global American Studies: The American Studies Program at Trinity College will appoint an innovative scholar whose research and teaching locates American culture and events within a transnational approach. Candidates may work in any period, but preference will be given to those whose work centers on social justice in a world-historical context. The successful candidate contributes to other departments and interdisciplinary programs, such as English, Environmental Science, History, International Studies, Sociology, and/or Women, Gender, and Sexuality. This is a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor. Trinity College, an AA/EOE committed to achieving diversity among its faculty, encourages women and members of minority groups to apply.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in American Studies or related discipline or a reasonable expectation of completing the Ph.D. by August 2019. To apply submit a letter of interest, a current curriculum vitae, an article-length writing sample, evidence of quality teaching, and three letters of references at the following site: https://trincoll.peopleadmin.com/postings/search.
Applications will be reviewed as they arrive with full consideration given to those received by November 16, 2018. Direct questions and inquiries to Scott Gac, director of the program in American Studies.
