The newly-formed Department of African and African American Studies (DAAAS) at Stanford University is searching for scholars who research and teach in the field of Caribbean Studies, to be appointed at the rank of tenure-track Assistant Professor. The term of appointment is expected to begin on September 1, 2024. Applications will be accepted through October 1, 2023.
We welcome applications from candidates who concentrate on the broadly defined oceanic and land-based Caribbean region – encompassing the diverse array of cultural and linguistic legacies that mark the region – in the humanities and the arts. Applicable fields may include, but aren’t limited to: history; literary, cultural, media or film studies; anthropology; linguistics; music; religious studies; philosophy; environmental humanities; art history or visual studies; or interdisciplinary studies. We are focused on identifying exceptional scholarship rather than looking for a specific thematic or disciplinary specialization.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment and will be expected to teach and advise students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Applicants must have demonstrated a commitment to effective teaching and mentoring and the ability to maintain a world-class research trajectory. Applicants should also demonstrate their capacity for interdisciplinary thinking and institution-building to contribute to the growth of DAAAS.
