The History of Art and Visual Culture Department (havc.ucsc.edu) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for the tenure-track Assistant Professorship in Europe in the Age of Colonialism and Resistance, 1500-1950. Across the centuries, European nations colonized much of the globe, impacting indigenous traditions and also changing European culture in fundamental ways. We seek a scholar whose research considers some aspect of Europe’s colonial agenda and its consequences, examining European art, architecture, and/or visual culture in ways that complicate the picture of European expansion and challenge the so-called Western episteme from a global perspective. Applicants must be capable of teaching a wide range of courses (large lecture to seminar) at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The department faculty support the investigation of art and visual culture from a variety of theoretical perspectives in the cultures of Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific Islands.
