The Department of Art and Art History at William & Mary seeks an innovative teacher-scholar for the Jane Williams Mahoney endowed position in Colonial Latin American Art History (pre1800). Applicants should currently be either an advanced Associate Professor or Full Professor. Review for tenure will take place at the start of the appointment. The position begins August 10, 2020.


We invite applicants in any area of the visual arts of pre-1800 Latin America. Candidates whose research and teaching make relevant connections to the Caribbean, the hemispheric Americas, Africa or the African Diaspora, and/or the Pacific world are encouraged to apply. We especially welcome applicants with expertise in post- and decolonial studies, indigenous knowledge and practices, and the heterogeneous cultures of the Americas.


Applicants must demonstrate an active and ongoing research program that inspires a highly motivated undergraduate student body as well as M.A./Ph.D. students in related programs and departments. The successful candidate is expected to develop compelling lecture and seminar courses at the introductory level as well as in their areas of specialization, advise undergraduates and graduate students, participate in department and university service, and generally contribute to the intellectual life of the institution. Teaching expectation is two courses per semester. Preference will be given to candidates who are able to contribute to our new Art History tracks in Critical Curatorial Studies and Built Environment Studies.
