Assistant Professor – Native American Art History (University of New Mexico)

Posted on

Position Summary
Assistant Professor of Native American Art History. Probationary appointment leading to a tenure decision. 1.0 FTE. Service and committee work expected. The successful candidate will be expected to develop collaborative working relationships with Native American academic units and groups on campus, and with Indigenous communities off campus locally and in the surrounding region.
The Art History program at UNM is unique in the nation, if not the world, for its concentration in Arts of the Americas. To date, this is the only program with full-time faculty in Pre-Hispanic Art, Spanish Colonial Art, Modern/Contemporary Latin American Art, Native American Art, U.S. and African American Art, and until recently, U.S. Latinx/Chicanx Art. Given the Indigenous presence across the Americas, Native American art overlaps with and is relevant to all of these other areas of specialization. Additionally, areas of study outside of Art History, both in the Department of Art and the College of Fine Arts, intersect with Native American art history, such as Land Arts of the American West, Pueblo Pottery, Studio Ceramics, Art and Ecology, and Ethnomusicology.
The longstanding presence of Native Pueblos and their cultural impact in the region make this area an ideal location for the study of Native history, culture, and art, both historical and living. Also, the presence of museums and community centers, such as the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque and the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, and including other nearby centers, such as Sky City Cultural Center and Haak’u Museum at Acoma Pueblo, among others, are invaluable resources not found anywhere else.
MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Ph.D. in the history of Native American Art or related discipline by the time of appointment. University level teaching experience at the graduate assistant level or above.
PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: Demonstrated ability to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in Native American Art History. Knowledge and application of the history of critical theory in Art History, such as critical race theory, gender theory, queer theory, postcolonial theory and decolonial strategies and current methodologies in Art History. Evidence of scholarly work. Publication record. A demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and student success, as well as working with broadly diverse communities. Knowledge of current technologies and applications to teaching. Collegiality.
Application Instructions
All applicants must apply online at the University of New Mexico website:, Req #2727. Please attach as part of the application in the UNMJobs system: a letter of application addressing areas of specialization, research, and teaching interests; CV with names and complete addresses (mailing, telephone, and email) of three professional references; teaching philosophy; diversity statement addressing contributions to diversity through research, teaching, and/or service; 
1-2 course syllabi (not to exceed 10 pages each); and 2 writing samples/published work (not to exceed 40 pages each). If selected for the position, you will need to provide official certification of successful completion of all degree requirements required as a minimum requirement for this position prior to your initial employment with UNM.
Applicants who are appointed to a UNM faculty position are required to provide an official certification of successful completion of all degree requirements prior to their initial employment with UNM.
For Best Consideration
For best consideration, please apply by 12/8/2017. This position will remain open until filled.
