The Africana Studies Program invites applications for a one-year, full-time visiting faculty position. The appointment is renewable for a second year contingent on successful annual review.

The Program values intellectual diversity and supports a wide range of critical and theoretical approaches that help bring people together across disciplines as they address questions of race in its historic and structural forms. We desire candidates with experience with and/or interest in working in a multicultural environment and encouraging excellence from students with diverse backgrounds and experiences.


Ph.D. preferred, advanced ABD will be considered. The ability to teach the introductory course, Foundations of Africana Studies, is required. The primary field within Africana Studies is open, but a graduate degree focused in Black Studies is desirable. The successful candidate will also be expected to teach advanced courses in their field of expertise, a course on Africana Studies methodology, as well as a senior capstone course within African/Africana Studies. Their work should be informed by theoretical and historical perspectives on race, reflecting the experiences of African Americans, Africa, and the African Diaspora.


Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, writing sample, unofficial graduate transcripts, statements of teaching and research philosophy, and a diversity statement via Interfolio: https://apply.interfolio.com/61083.

Additional inquiries can be addressed to Professor Justin Rose, Chair of the Africana Studies Program (rose@hws.edu).
