Faculty of Fine Arts, Concordia University, Montreal
With over 4,000 students, faculty, and staff, the Faculty of Fine Arts is among the five largest art and design schools in North America. Nestled in the heart of a pulsing city, embraced by a dynamic research university, the Faculty benefits from access to brilliant practitioners, thriving venues, cross-cultural perspectives, and an extensive network of facilities for research and production.
This tenure-track position – dedicated to Black Studies in Art Education, Art History and Social Justice – is a cross-appointment between the Departments of Art History and Art Education. The Department of Art History is one of the leading departments in the country — known for its theoretical and methodological strengths, its focus on visual and material culture, and its commitment to historic and contemporary forms of Canadian and Indigenous Art. The Department of Art Education is the most extensive Art Education program in Canada and one of the largest in the world.
The Faculty of Fine Arts has Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) faculty members and research chairs in many of its departments, including Art Education and Art History. The Faculty is home to a number of research projects, centres, and student groups committed to BIPOC concerns. Concordia University is in the process of implementing university-wide policies about EDI (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion), and there are currently several individuals, units, and faculties interested in launching a Black Studies program.
Building on a rich history and current track record of discussions, collaborations, and research, we are seeking candidates with a research and teaching profile in Black Studies. Applications should be submitted by November 30, 2020 but will continue to be reviewed until the position is filled. Only short-listed candidates will be notified. The appointment is expected to commence on August 1, 2021.
Concordia University is strongly committed to employment equity within its community, and to recruiting a diverse faculty and staff. The University encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including women, members of visible minorities, Indigenous persons, members of sexual minorities, persons with disabilities, and others who may contribute to diversification; candidates are invited to self-identify in their applications. Canadians and Permanent Residents will be given priority.
