Assistant Professor of Art History and Visual Culture -- Tenure Track - IRC38876

The Division of Visual Arts at Texas Woman's University invites applications for a Tenure Track Assistant Professor of Art History and Visual Culture, beginning in Fall 2022.

This position is part of the Texas Woman's University College of Arts and Sciences Arts (CAS) diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) cluster hiring initiative on diversity and social justice that includes multiple searches across the college. The goals of the cluster hire are to 1) recruit and retain a diverse community of scholars; 2) create a network and support system for a diverse community of scholars; 3) support our diverse student population in majors and minors in CAS disciplines; and 4) strengthen the college's course offerings in diversity and social justice that enhance a university-wide core curriculum with a DEI component.

Qualifications: We seek a dedicated, innovative, and collaborative professional with an interdisciplinary approach to Art History and Visual Culture. A terminal degree (PhD) in Art History or related field completed by the time of hire is required. This position requires the ability to teach a range of courses in Art History and in Visual Culture, which may include surveys and seminars at the undergraduate level, seminars at the graduate level, special topics courses, and core or capstone courses. Course delivery modes will include in person and/or online. Contemporary, Global/Non-Western Art, and/or Gender and Women's Studies areas of expertise are desired, but all areas in Art History and Visual Culture will be considered. A minimum of 3 years of teaching experience is preferred. Candidates should have experience working with diverse student populations.

Additional/Preferred Qualifications:

The Division of Visual Arts highly values candidates whose research is informed by Women and Gender Studies and/or social justice-related fields and have prior experience working with diverse student populations. Candidates should be dedicated to serving our diverse community including first-generation, non-traditional, LGBTQIA+, and differently-abled students.

Job Requirements: Tenure track faculty are expected to maintain active and independent research resulting in publications and presentations; and are also expected to participate in service at all levels.

We seek a colleague invested in growing as an educator, who will join us in building accessible, diverse, and inclusive curricula, developing a classroom culture which reflects our values and mission of social justice and responsibility. All faculty are expected to serve the Division's goals and teach in ways that support interdisciplinary approaches, hybrid formats, conceptual rigor, and collaboration. We have recently revised our MA in Art with a concentration in Art History and Visual Culture, to include an option to take coursework in TWU's Multicultural Women and Gender Studies program. The candidate selected for this position will be expected to grow that program, and will also have the opportunity to revise and restart the BA in Art History and Visual Culture, which is currently not active.

Alongside their teaching responsibilities, Visual Arts faculty must maintain a scholarly practice in the form of research/creative activities, as well as serve the division, school, college, university, community and discipline through service. The faculty member's research activity should make a significant contribution to the discipline's body of new knowledge, reflecting high standards of quality; and must regularly share the results of that activity in respected national and international formats and venues.

Participation in committee service and activities are required within the Division, as well as within one's professional community. Our ideal candidate fosters connections, collaborations, and creates community at multiple levels internally and externally. Service activity will include but not be limited to graduate student supervision; coordination of student activities and student exhibitions; serving on School/University committees; participating in open houses, portfolio reviews, attending exhibition openings; and contributing to recruitment efforts for the Division's undergraduate and graduate programs. Joint recruitment efforts will include strategizing and implementing community-focused outreach, recruitment efforts, and cultivation of relationships in the design and foundations communities.
