The History Department at Colby College invites applications for a one-year replacement position for a Visiting Assistant Professor in World History with a regional specialization in Africa, to begin September 1, 2021.

The Department is a community of engaged teacher-scholars who teach a diverse array of courses from surveys to specialized seminars grounded in our research. The Department is open to expertise on all themes, including (but not exclusively) intellectual history, histories of race, gender, and sexuality, and histories of migration, trade, and empire. Reflecting the Department’s increasing focus on global history, the candidate’s research and teaching interests should speak to global contexts. The successful candidate will also be expected to teach HI 276, Patterns and Processes in World History. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who will bring to the classroom experiences, identities, ideas, and ways of engaging that will resonate with History’s, and Colby’s, increasingly diverse student body. We are searching for candidates with great potential to be innovative, effective, and inclusive teachers of history at Colby, who may be willing to make use of resources made available by the Colby Museum of Art, Special Collections, and the Mule Works Innovation Lab. In evaluating this potential, we will give particular weight to candidates who have successfully designed and taught their own courses. PhD preferred, but ABD will be considered. The Colby History Department is committed to professional development and the future advancement of all its members.

Please submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, three confidential letters of recommendation, and a statement of teaching philosophy and research interests that demonstrates commitment to the value of diversity and to inclusive teaching via Interfolio at the following link http://apply.interfolio.com/79641.
