Kenyon College, a highly selective, nationally ranked liberal arts college in central Ohio, invites applications for a tenure track position in Art History at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in July 2020.
The Department of Art History at Kenyon College is accepting applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Early Modern Art History. The appointment will begin in July 2020. Candidates should have expertise in the material culture of Early Modern Europe from the Baroque to the early Industrial Age. We seek a creative colleague who can immediately contribute to re-shaping the current curriculum. Applicants must be interested in offering a fresh, global perspective on permanent courses, including the Survey of Art, and developing new courses at the introductory, intermediate, and advanced levels. We are interested in teacher-scholars who can offer creative ways to engage with the Department’s Visual Resources Center, our Study Collection, and regional art museums located in Columbus and Cleveland. Candidates’ teaching and research should emphasize an interdisciplinary perspective that demonstrates interest in connections between Europe, the Americas, Africa, and/or Asia. We particularly welcome candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas: architecture, museums, and pre–1900 print culture, including photography, prints, and manuscripts. Applicants should complement, not duplicate, current expertise of the department. Applicants must be able to demonstrate excellence in teaching, with evidence of support for Kenyon’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. The candidate will have the opportunity to play a leadership role in the College’s study abroad program in Rome, Italy.
