Assistant Professor in Film & Media Studies or Art History with a focus on Mexican, Latin American and Latinx film and media and/or history of art
The Departments of Art History and of Film and Media Studies at the University of California, Irvine invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in modern/contemporary Latina/o/x, Mexican, and/or Latin American Art and Architectural History and/or Film and Media Studies. This specialization may be broadly conceived to include transnational /transborder contexts and analyses, and is open in its range of media. We are also interested in candidates with a demonstrated engagement with one or more of the following areas: cultural studies, postcolonial theory, and/or the political and ethical implications of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and indigeneity. Applicants must demonstrate potential for excellence in scholarship and in teaching a range of core and elective courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We anticipate the appointment will be in one department or the other rather than a joint appointment.
The Departments jointly offer the Ph.D. program in Visual Studies.
A Ph.D. in Art History and/or Film and Media Studies or related field must be completed by June 30, 2021.
