Assistant/Associate Professor, Global Blackness and African Diaspora Studies
Location: New Haven
Internal Number: 127951
The Program in Ethnicity, Race, and Migration is looking to hire a full-time scholar at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor or Associate Professor (with tenure), with an initial five-year appointment in Global Black and African Diaspora Studies, beginning July 1, 2024.
The Program seeks candidates whose research and teaching focus on the formations and lived experiences of Blackness, with emphasis on global, comparative, indigenous, or transnational perspectives drawn from African, Indigenous, Asian, Middle Eastern, European, or Latin American and Caribbean contexts. Identified areas of interest for this search include: historical formations of race, indigeneity, and Blackness; labor, formal/informal economies, and syndicalism; community building, politics, and social movements; visual and expressive cultures; critical ecologies, climate displacement, and environmental racism; comparative colonialisms and settler states; racial analysis of education, health, and wealth; comparative South-South mobility and solidarities; global anti-Blackness; and African/diasporic queer and feminist activism.
The teaching expectation is normally four courses per academic year, plus service to the program, including student advising. The primary focus of these courses would be Global Black and African Diaspora studies, but candidates can also offer courses beyond that field, including, for instance, critical and methodological approaches to ethnography, visual/digital technologies, transnational feminist and queer studies, textual and cultural analysis, archival research, and critical geography and demography.
Applicants should apply via https://apply.interfolio.com/127951. They should submit a cover letter, CV, teaching and research statements, a writing sample of approximately 30 pages, and the names and addresses of three references. For questions, please contact Professor Alicia Schmidt Camacho, chair of the search committee, at email@example.com. The Program will begin reviewing applications on October 15, 2023.
