The Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Regis College, within Regis University, invites applications for a tenure track position in Art History at the rank of Assistant Professor to start in August 2022. The department is seeking an Art Historian who is a dedicated educator and committed scholar to teach all levels of undergraduate courses in Art History, Art Appreciation, and courses in the college liberal arts core. Applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to educating and supporting diverse student populations are strongly encouraged to apply.
This position will be the sole full time Art Historian within a Fine Arts Department of eight full time faculty members (four in Visual Art and four in Music). As a result, our Art Historian position will have a great deal of autonomy in shaping the Art History program. The search is open to all specializations within Art History, but we would particularly welcome a candidate with a dual background in Western and Non-Western Art History (desirable areas of specialization/research include, but are not limited to Indigenous, African, Latin-American, Non-Western art history), who would feel comfortable teaching Non-Western upper division courses. This position will suit an art historian who identifies as a generalist and is excited to teach a wide variety of classes. We also encourage candidates who could offer upper division Art History courses on interdisciplinary topics such as inequality, race and ethnicity, and/or gender and sexuality.
