The Department of Architecture and Design in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at the American University of Beirut invites applications for a visiting position for one or two semester in the field of History of Art and Architecture, beginning in August 2017.

The Department has two undergraduate programs, one in Architecture and one in Graphic Design, and two graduate programs in Urban Planning and Policy and in Urban Design.

Art and design disciplines are understood as cultural practices that engage social, economic and political issues and as critical tools of inquiry that integrate process with product and methodology with representation in a multidisciplinary manner. Inquiry through design comes with an acute awareness of our existence in the region with its multitude of languages and cultures and our location within Beirut with its exceptional physical fabric and cultural formats. The discourse on the city is intense and pluralistic. It links the undergraduate and graduate programs of study in Architecture, Graphic Design and Planning and facilitates close interaction between them and with the professional community. The Department is currently working to establish new graduate programs.

A candidate with a Ph.D. in Art History or a closely related discipline is preferred, but ABD with demonstrated teaching experience will also be considered. The candidate will contribute to the teaching of courses in the history of art and architecture sequence and will offer a seminar in the area of his/her specialty.

Job: Research Associate: Impact of the Ancient City ERC Project (Urban Ideals in the Islamic World), University of Cambridge

Job: Research Associate: Impact of the Ancient City ERC Project (Urban Ideals in the Islamic World)

University of Cambridge, Faculty of Classics

Limit of Tenure: 4 years from 01 January 2017 (or as soon as possible thereafter)

Applications are sought for a Research Associate who will be one of four postdoctoral researchers on the ERC funded ‘Impact of the Ancient City’ project led by the Principal Investigator Professor Andrew Wallace-Hadrill. The project will re-examine the impact of the ancient, Greco-Roman city on subsequent urban history in Europe and the Islamic world, investigating both the urban fabric and urban ideals. Bringing together researchers trained in historical, archaeological and literary analysis, the project spans the entire Mediterranean region from Greco-Roman antiquity to the present day. The research team will investigate case histories in the western and the eastern Mediterranean, and pose a set of questions about how urban forms responded to changing social needs. A full description of the project is available.

The role of the Islamic World Research Associate is to re-examine perceptions of the ancient, Greco-Roman city in the Islamic world. The successful candidate will assemble and study examples of literary engagement with the physical traces of the Greco-Roman city, but will also consider the ways in which the inhabitants of the ‘Islamic city’ reconfigured this past. The Research Associate’s task will be to focus on how the Islamic urban imaginary grew in part from the Byzantine, and how awareness of the Greco-Roman city was mediated by its Christian successor, nourished by accumulated re-readings of inherited urban spaces and buildings.

The successful candidate is expected to work as part of a team based in Cambridge, discussing findings and problems with the other members of the project team. The successful candidate will be expected to spend up to three months in each of the first three years of research on fieldwork visits for the case studies, as well as taking part in regular meetings and seminars in Cambridge, and the three annual conferences. They will publish the results of their research within the publication programme of the project.
