The Department of European Languages and Transcultural Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles has been authorized to make an appointment to a full-time position with expertise in transcultural European studies during the period of 1000 to 1700. This is an open-rank search.
A Ph.D. in a humanities field must be in hand by the time of appointment (July 1, 2024).
Candidates are expected to have near-native proficiency in at least one of the primary language traditions of the department (French, Italian, German, or Scandinavian languages), while also being able to contribute to transcultural approaches to the study of literary and humanistic traditions. We welcome research on race, religion, migration, media, and gender/sexuality, as well as new approaches to orality, literacy, translation, and Medieval/Renaissance studies writ large. We are interested in applicants whose work connects literary, cultural, material, and manuscript/early book studies and who bring to bear comparative Mediterranean Studies, North Atlantic Studies, and early global studies and/or new methodological approaches in the experimental humanities (Digital, Environmental, Health, Urban, and Public Humanities). The successful candidate will be expected to teach foundational courses in the undergraduate curriculum (especially in Medieval, Renaissance and/or Early Modern studies), support majors and minors in transcultural European Studies, and mentor graduate students in European Languages and Transcultural Studies. We seek the potential for exceptional research, excellence in teaching (lower division to graduate), and value candidates whose experience in teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence. Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply.
Deadline for applications: 15 November 2023
