Assistant Professor in Expanding Approaches to American Arts
University of Texas at Austin
Location: Austin, Texas
Type: Full Time
The College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at Austin (UT) seeks multiple, tenure-track colleagues (assistant professor rank) with a focus in interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary approaches to scholarship and/or research-based practice in visual, media-based, and/or performing arts of the United States. Rank and salary commensurate with experience. Position requires relocation to Austin, TX. We are specifically invested in deepening our engagement with underrepresented archives, methods, and repertoires within the United States, inclusive of perspectives from Rural communities, Young makers and audiences, Indigenous, Afrodiasporic, Mexican American and Latinx artistic practices. The committee welcomes transnational, hemispheric, circum-Atlantic, and global frameworks, and methodologies.
This interdisciplinary cohort hire is intended to impact the curricula, research profiles, and culture of more than one department/school in the College of Fine Arts. They will introduce innovations to the study of creative expression that intersect with complementary disciplines; for example, religious studies, youth studies, ethnography/anthropology, practice as research, new media/genre studies, technological arts and ethics, science and art, cultural/race/ethnic studies, disability studies, and transnational studies. We invite applications from academics and practitioners whose teaching, scholarship, and creative activity explore forms of creative practice not necessarily aligned with traditional institutions or methodologies.
