Teaching Fellowship in Art History


Millsaps College announces a Fellowship in Art History beginning in August 2014 for ABD or postdoctoral scholar-teachers.

This one-year teaching fellowship is open to art historians at the beginning of their careers, either at the ABD or post-doctoral stage. The half-time teaching load (one course in the fall and two in the spring) will allow the recipient to strengthen teaching skills while also working on professional publications. The Fellow will be expected to engage actively in the intellectual life of the college and will have the opportunity to participate in college-wide teaching colloquia and humanities writing workshops while being part of a small and mutually engaged department.

Terms: The area of specialization is open, but the ability to teach topics in Ancient and World Art or Modern and Contemporary Art is preferred.  The 1/2 teaching load will include at least two art history courses and possibly one Humanities core course with a focus in art history.   The salary will be competitive and the Fellow will also receive health and other benefits, a travel and research stipend of $2000, an allowance for moving expenses, and a private office with computer in the Art Department.

 Application: Send the following as email attachments (.doc, .docx, or .pdf) to Dr. Elise Smith, Professor of Art History, Chair of the Art Department,  smithel@millsaps.edu: letter of application, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching effectiveness (sample syllabi, assignments, and/or student evaluations), list of college courses taught, and statement of research interests. Please indicate in your letter of application whether you will be attending the College Art Association meeting in February. Also have three recommenders send letters of recommendation as email attachments to Dr. Smith.

Deadline: Review of applications will begin on January 10, 2014
