The successful applicant will have a PhD in Spanish by August 1, 2020, native or near-native command of Spanish, and extensive experience and demonstrated excellence in teaching language and contemporary Latin American cultural production. The search committee is especially interested in a candidate whose teaching and scholarship demonstrate experience with the interdisciplinary practices and methodologies of cultural studies, who has an interest in new and emergent types of literary and artistic expression in Latin America (graphic literature & comics, performing arts, popular culture, visual culture, among others), whose work engages with indigeneity and indigenous studies and/or ecocriticism and environmental humanities within these fields, and who can contribute to the continued success of the Latin American Studies Program at Colby, a program with which we maintain a close relationship.

Applicants should submit (1) a cover letter that explains their interest in and qualifications for the position, (2) a curriculum vitae, (3) a statement of teaching philosophy and (4) a statement of research interests, both of which demonstrate a commitment to the value of diversity and experience with inclusive teaching, (5) a representative sample of current scholarship, and (6) three confidential letters of recommendation.
