The ability to teach in more than one geographic area is desirable.

The successful candidate will demonstrate their commitment to a liberal arts education, to diversity, equity, and inclusion in teaching, and to transcultural, global approaches to the field of art history. The applicant's research and teaching would complement current departmental expertise and contribute to the Department's efforts in diversifying the curriculum and expanding the geographic scope of the program. We seek a scholar who would teach introductory undergraduate courses from a global perspective, as well as mid- to upper-level classes in their area(s) of expertise.

We invite and encourage members of underrepresented populations to apply. The University is an equal opportunity employer for whom diversity is an essential source of vitality and strength.

The Institution : Founded in 1962, The American University of Paris (AUP) is a private, four-year liberal arts research university whose language of instruction is English. AUP brings together the values of the American higher education system with its location in Paris and Europe. AUP is accredited in the United States of America by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. AUP has cooperative agreements with the University of Southern California, George Washington University, Northeastern University, and other USA-based universities.

The Department : The Department of Art History and Fine Arts consists of an Art History major and a Fine Arts major. We also house minors in Art History, Fine Arts and Visual Culture. The Art History program offers an in-depth, critical study of visual and material culture from the ancient to the modern period. Students learn how to interpret works of art, read major theoretical texts, and explore the relationships between visual culture and society. Through visual literacy, students likewise approach broader, interdisciplinary questions relating to race, class, power, gender and sexuality. Our small class sizes allow students to engage in intellectual debate and discussion. Outside of the classroom, students benefit from unparalleled opportunities to study art history in Paris's museums and monuments, as well as through study trips led by professors both within France and beyond.
