The Department of Hispanic Studies at Brown University invites applications for an assistant professor, tenure-track, in the field of nineteenth- to early twentieth-century century Spanish literature and culture. We are interested in scholars of peninsular Spain with a broad global perspective who will enhance Brown and the department's commitment to inclusive research and teaching. Applicants whose work focuses on any of the following areas are particularly welcome: literary and cultural exchanges between Spain and Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, or Mexico; discourses of gender, race, and nation; literary and artistic modernism and cosmopolitanism. We also welcome candidates who would complement the department's cross-disciplinary strengths in performance, visual, urban, or environmental studies.
A PhD in Spanish or equivalent degree is required by the position start date, July 1, 2018. The successful applicant will demonstrate exceptional promise as a rigorous and dynamic scholar and an innovative, dedicated teacher and mentor of undergraduates and graduate students. The successful candidate will also show a commitment to outreach beyond the classroom and contribute to the intellectual life of the department and wider university. Near-native or native Spanish fluency is expected.
