Join SCAD Hong Kong as a Professor of Art History to provide students with the expertise needed to investigate and explain the complex relationships between context and cultural production.
In this role, you will help SCAD students navigate historical and contemporary expressive practices through critical encounters with art, artifacts and other forms of cultural production. Through art history coursework, students gain a curiosity for creative inquiry, invention, critical thinking and visual analysis. These skills propel them into major-specific disciplines where they go on to write Emmy Award-winning sitcoms, design products and services recognized by Red Dot Awards and create written work honored by the Association of Writers and Writing Programs.
Working with this community of diverse and highly credentialed art history faculty, you will have the ability to motivate students to think creatively and critically in an active and engaging learning environment. University-level teaching experience is essential. A specialty in American art and a prior study devoted to visual culture, art criticism, new media, photography and film is preferred.
You and your students will have access to the nation’s largest physical library holdings among art, design and music schools, including rare, valuable and significant works, as well as exclusive entrée to objects of study at the SCAD Museum of Art, SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film and the Lacoste History Museum. Enriching lecture series, symposia and events invite visiting scholars and artists from across the globe to engage in creative discourse. Recent guests have included Carlos Cruz-Diez, Alfredo Jaar, Carrie Mae Weems, Philippe de Montebello, Jerry Saltz and Louis Menand, to name a few. This global network of libraries, museums, galleries, signature events and more provides unparalleled opportunities for students to explore the emergence of innovative forms of expression and engage in scholarly research.
From skyscrapers to sacred temples, white-sand beaches to mountain views, Hong Kong’s creative scene spreads across the region. Providing the perfect backdrop for teaching and learning, the vibrant island city of Hong Kong thrives as a global capital of entertainment, digital media, fashion and design.
