Subject: [DS-HUM] Assistant Professor in Africana Studies and English at Davidson College

Dear friends -

Come work with me at Davidson College! We are hiring an assistant professor in Africana Studies and English.  Please note that this job ad encourages applications from applicants who specialize in disability studies. Please note, too that new hires at Davidson College are required to be vaccinated. The ad is available here<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://employment.davidson.edu/en-us/job/493912/assistant-professor-in-africana-studies-and-english__;!!MXfaZl3l!J6QcbnrDAGEJzWueO2X3bnZpPzVb065pu_mEOgq51zq57sY0vM-01A8Vjx9o0TZQvA$ > and below.  - Best, Ann Fox

The Africana Studies Department and the English Department seek to hire a tenure-track assistant professor with expertise in African American literature. We encourage applications that situate African American literature within national and transnational contexts and / or engage in film studies, with attention to class, gender, sexuality, and disability.
Teaching load is four courses in the first year, and five thereafter, and related responsibilities will be shared between Africana Studies and English.  The candidate must be able to teach introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in both Africana Studies and English, including literature surveys.

Candidates will be expected to have an ongoing research program related to African American literature and to publish in the field.  Additional responsibilities include academic advising of undergraduates, participation on college-wide and departmental committees, and directing student research.  Service to both departments will be equitable to the service of faculty members appointed in a single department.

The successful candidate will be expected to have a PhD by August 1, 2022, in African American/Africana/American Studies or English and have a demonstrated potential for excellence in research, as well as demonstrated potential for excellence in and enthusiasm for undergraduate teaching and inclusive pedagogy.

Attach a cover letter, CV, writing sample (chapter- or article-length), a teaching philosophy statement, and a statement summarizing your approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. Please also provide a graduate school transcript and names and contact information for three or more references who have agreed to provide letters of recommendation. Do not send letters of recommendation until requested.

The application deadline is 11 October 2021.  Please submit documents to https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://employment.davidson.edu__;!!MXfaZl3l!J6QcbnrDAGEJzWueO2X3bnZpPzVb065pu_mEOgq51zq57sY0vM-01A8Vjx98lfAKJw$ <https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://employment.davidson.edu/__;!!MXfaZl3l!J6QcbnrDAGEJzWueO2X3bnZpPzVb065pu_mEOgq51zq57sY0vM-01A8Vjx_pDzlLOQ$ >.  If letters of recommendation are requested, they will be due by 1 November 2021. Initial interviews will be conducted via Zoom, and campus visits will be hosted before Davidson's fall semester ends on 10 December.
