DESCRIPTION

The Feminist Studies Department [https://feministstudies.ucsc.edu/] at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for a Visiting Assistant Professor in Native American and Indigenous Studies. Under the direction of the Feminist Studies Department Chair, Felicity Amaya Schaeffer, the Visiting Assistant Professor will contribute to teaching and scholarly research in the Critical Race and Ethnic Studies Program and home department of Feminist Studies.

 

The incumbent will have research and teaching experience in the field of Native American and Indigenous Studies, broadly defined, with a focus on (but not limited to) the peoples of North America. While the area of specialization is open, applicants with expertise in the histories, cultures, artistic and cultural production, sovereignty, political and social realities, and feminist approaches to knowledge systems and/or epistemologies of Indigenous people are strongly encouraged to apply.

 

The Visiting Assistant Professor will pursue a program of independent scholarship under the guidance of a faculty mentor and will provide intellectual expertise to the campus in his or her area of focus and engage with faculty colleagues and students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The candidate is also expected to participate in the broader Native American and Indigenous Studies community at UCSC while in residence. We especially welcome applicants with a demonstrated commitment to working collaboratively with Indigenous communities. This position carries a three to four-course workload over three quarters.
