ecology and environment and/or race and colonialism
Are you an experienced and influential academic with the proven ability to carry out teaching and research in the art history of the long nineteenth century? Do you have an excellent research track record, proven success obtaining funding and the vision and drive to tackle new challenges? Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research and an exceptional student experience?
As Associate Professor, you will carry out research, teaching and leadership within the school, faculty and university, and contribute to academic development of the art history of the long nineteenth century, with a focus on ecology and environment and/or race and colonialism. We welcome applications from scholars working on any form/s of artistic production in that period, within any geographical framework/s in order to complement existing strengths in the School. Note that preference will be given to candidates whose research engages with questions of ecology and environment, and/or race and colonialism in the long nineteenth century, but if an exceptional case can be made, the School will consider applicants whose research focus is another area of the art history of the long nineteenth century.
The School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds has a long-established reputation for cutting-edge work in the social history of art (broadly defined and with global perpsectives), with particularly marked engagements in critical feminism, traditions of Marxist thought, Jewish studies, postcolonial theory and critical studies of race and racism. We are seeking candidates with a proven track record in their areas of research and teaching, and with the drive to bring fresh impetus to the School's intellectual and pedagogic concerns. Teaching will involve both the development of specialist options, and contribution to group-taught modules, including some with a focus on practices of display, and on historiography, methodology and theory.
The School as a whole forms a lively interdisciplinary community. In addition to our work in the history of art, colleagues are engaged in fine art, cultural and media studies, and critically informed work in museums, heritage and engagement practices. In the most recent national Research Excellence Framework exercise, our research environment achieved 100% ‘world leading' status. We teach significant cohorts of undergraduate and Masters students across a range of linked programmes, and we are host to a sizable number of PhD researchers. The School is part of a large, diverse and forward-looking Faculty encompassing a range of related disciplines in the arts, humanities and cultures.
