The Department of Art History at Dartmouth College invites applications for a scholar of early modern art in Italy (c. 1400 – 1700) for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor. We are especially interested in candidates who situate early modern Italy within broader European and global contexts, such as cultural exchanges with the Americas, North Africa, the Eastern Mediterranean, and/or Asia.

Many of our courses are cross-listed with other programs such as Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; Latin American, Latinx, and Caribbean Studies, Middle Eastern Studies; Asian Societies, Cultures and Languages; and Comparative Literature. Current Art History faculty members participate in a variety of campus research and pedagogical initiatives such as digital humanities and experiential learning.  We welcome applicants interested in forging research and curricular links with other campus units.

Students at Dartmouth College are diverse by many measures. We particularly seek applicants with an interest in teaching and mentoring of students from all backgrounds (including first-generation college students, low-income students, racial and ethnic minorities, women, LGBTQ, etc.). We are especially interested in candidates who will contribute to Dartmouth’s diversity initiatives that focus on undergraduate research. Notably, four recent Art History majors have been awarded the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship.

To apply, please provide a letter of application, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, evidence of teaching experience, a dissertation abstract, and a chapter of the dissertation or a published article. All materials should be submitted through Interfolio apply.interfolio.com/44946 .
