The Art History Department at Binghamton University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Pre-Modern (pre-1750) Art History to begin Fall 2022. We seek a colleague who shares our commitment to new theoretical perspectives and cross-disciplinary approaches to the history of art, architecture, and the broader field of visual culture and will introduce emergent areas of study, including but not limited to: cultures of empire; digital art histories; the materiality and cultures of making in artworks and buildings; and race and representation in the pre-modern world. We are particularly interested in candidates whose scholarship embraces transregional and interdisciplinary approaches; whose pedagogy promotes student engagement and supports a vibrant PhD program; and who would welcome the opportunity to participate in the interdisciplinary life of the University and work collaboratively with their colleagues in Art History as well as in other departments and programs, including the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies and the Material and Visual Worlds Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence. This position is part of Binghamton’s multiyear cluster hire initiative in Arts Practice, Performance and Research in the 21st Century; for more information, see https://www.binghamton.edu/harpur/research/cluster-hire.html.
