Details on the core curriculum, including learning goals and objectives for the Cultures and Ideas I-II sequence.

We seek a teaching-scholar colleague with demonstrated teaching and mentoring excellence; evidence of an active research program, including the ability to publish in peer-reviewed journals; and a strong interdisciplinary approach to the field of historic or contemporary East Asian art history. Strong communication skills (oral and written) and potential for leadership are highly desirable, as are ability to teach East Asian art as part of a broader global perspective, interest in Digital Humanities, and experience in curriculum development.
