Poste de Visiting Assistant Professor of Art History (Asian Art), Swarthmore College
The Department of Art and Art History at Swarthmore College invites applications for a three-year temporary position specializing in Asian art to begin Fall 2018 and extend through Spring 2021; an extension may be possible. We seek an art historian who can teach a broad array of courses in the history of Asian art, ideally both pre-modern and contemporary. We welcome candidates with research and teaching interests in cross-cultural encounters and interdisciplinary exchanges. The strongest applicants will be dedicated teacher-scholars with a well-developed primary field of specialization, an interest in developing courses with thematic, geographical, and temporal breadth, and a commitment to pedagogically-creative undergraduate teaching in a liberal arts context. We are particularly interested in candidates who can work effectively with students from diverse backgrounds.
