Oct 08, 2019Full time
The Department of History at Colby College invites applications for a tenure/tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor of the history of the Atlantic World, within a global context beginning September 1, 2020. The Department is a community of engaged teacher-scholars who teach a diverse array of courses deeply grounded in our research. We are searching for a teacher-scholar with a focus on the Atlantic World in any era. 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, positioning the worlds constituted around the Atlantic in comparative, transnational perspective. The successful candidate will also be expected to teach HI 276, Patterns and Processes in World History, on an occasional basis.
