Assistant or Associate Professor

The Department of Romance Studies invites candidates to apply for a faculty position at the Assistant or Associate level as part of a university-wide cluster hire in Latinx Studies. ABDs are also invited to apply. These hires are part of an effort to increase the number of faculty with global perspectives and expertise across core departments, with support from the Office of the Provost and funded by The Duke Endowment. Candidates will be considered by a university-wide committee and in the context of Romance Studies as the hiring department.

As a department where multilingualism, translanguaging, and interdisciplinarity are welcome, Romance Studies has long been the home for Latinx Studies at Duke. With this hire we seek to consolidate and enhance the research agenda, curricular offerings, and public engagement that have characterized the Program in Latino/a Studies in the Global South. We encourage applications from scholar-teachers who deepen and expand our understanding of Latinx cultural production as a crucial component of expressive arts and critical theory in the Global South.

Candidates should be at the assistant or associate professor level. Preference will be given to candidates whose work is centrally located in Latinx Studies. Concentrations might include but are not limited to such knowledge formations as Afro-Latinx Studies; Critical Latinx Indigenous Studies; Global Border Studies; the Global South; Latinx Europe; the Multilingual Latinx Mediascape and New Media; Sound and Music Studies; Trans, Sexuality, and Gender Latinx Studies.

Candidates submitting materials by October 26, 2020 will receive full consideration. Candidates should submit a cover letter, cv, work sample (an article or a chapter), and three letters of recommendation. Candidates should also indicate Romance Studies as their preferred primary department and, where applicable, the secondary department. Review of candidates will continue until positions are filled.
