Faculty position available in Asian Art History at Sacramento State. There is no closing date posted, so if you are interested in applying, better to send in an application sooner than later!
The Art Department at Sacramento State seeks a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Asian Art History with a research emphasis before 1850. Our department invites applications from dynamic instructors capable of implementing innovative high-impact pedagogies that will engage our students in the study of art history and help develop the reading, writing, and critical thinking skills of both General Education students and Art majors. The ideal candidate is a scholar who centers concepts of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice in their research, teaching, and service.
We welcome candidates who will support and expand the Art History program’s efforts to create a globally oriented art history curriculum, decentering the traditional European canon in favor of art histories that highlight artists of different races, genders, and nationalities/cultural origins. We seek an expert in the history of Asian art, with the potential to teach introductory surveys that introduce students to the breadth of Asian art and advanced courses that reflect the Sacramento region’s diverse Asian communities, particularly in areas that are often neglected in the history of Asian art (e.g., South Asia, Southeast Asia, and/or Central Asia). As a member of the Art Department, the hire will collaborate with colleagues in Art History, Art Education, and Studio Art, as well as with Asian Studies faculty across campus, in various service roles and as a part of University projects such as the Anchor University Initiative.
