Starting Date:
August 16, 2019
Post date: September 19, 2018

Occidental College’s Department of Critical Theory and Social Justice (CTSJ) invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track professor of Indigenous/Settler Colonialism Studies (ISCS). As an intersectional and interdisciplinary department, CTSJ seeks to harness emergent academic analyses at the nexus of such fields as Native studies, comparative empire studies, posthumanist theory, biopolitics, theories of sovereignty, and problems of justice broadly.

We seek candidates with a PhD received by fall 2019, from either humanities or social science departments, with a specialty in the study of indigenous/native populations and cultures, analyses of empire and colonialism, and critical theory. We welcome recent PhD’s, as well as scholars who have been teaching for several years. Strong candidates will be able to teach a range of courses (five yearly across two semesters), including introductory critical theory courses, courses in Occidental’s Cultural Studies Program, extant CTSJ seminars, and new courses in ISCS-related fields.
