Preference will be given to those scholars with demonstrated excellence in

art

actively in shaping the future of research, curriculum, and pedagogy in a 

vibrant undergraduate and graduate art history program. The candidate will 

develop courses for undergraduate and graduate students, from general 

surveys to focused research seminars; mentor students at all levels; 

supervise MA theses; and contribute to the overall vitality of the 

university through engagement in the Iberian and Latin American Studies 

program and other interdisciplinary programs within the Meadows School of 

the Arts and across campus.

and travel support. In general the teaching load is 2/2.
