The Department of English at Washington State University invites applications for a permanent, full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Pullman, WA, who works in Early Modern British Literature, including Shakespeare, with an emphasis upon Critical Race Theory (e.g., Anti-Racist Shakespeare), especially as it relates to Drama and Performance. The ideal candidate is a dynamic scholar-teacher with a clear research plan and carefully considered approach to the teaching and learning of Shakespeare.
