Required Qualification Summary:
Successful candidates will have a strong record of peer-reviewed publications that have demonstrable interdisciplinary reach. They will have a portfolio of classes which engage issues of race, gender, class, sexuality, Indigeneity, political economy, imperialism and/or social movements. The specific disciplines in which they were trained and have taught are less important than a commitment to critical engagement with these issues and an approach to American Studies that acknowledges and responds to its contemporary, historical, hemispheric and transnational contexts.
