Miami University is hiring an Assistant Professor of Latina/o Studies with a focus on the U.S., Latinidad, and the Américas to link the Latina/o experience in the United States to Latin American and Caribbean countries of origin. Among the ways to make those links could be through consideration of transnational processes, diasporic networks, global economic developments, remittances, US and Latin American foreign policies, immigration policy (in both U.S. and in sending countries), long distance nationalism, border relations, cultural practice and change, hometown associations, or cross-border organizing. We are also interested in those who engage issues of race and racialization of Latino/as in the US, as well as critical race/ethnic studies approaches to Afro-Latino/as and Afro-Latinidad. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary scholars with research experience grounded both in the United States and in Latin America or the Caribbean. The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching, research, and service to the department, college, and university.
PhD in Latin American Studies, Anthropology, geography, history, comparative politics, languages, and literatures, or a closely related field, by date of appointment.
Consideration will be given to those with native or near-native fluency in Spanish; commitment to diverse curricula in the Department of Global and Intercultural Studies, potentially contributing to interdisciplinary teaching and research in the department’s multiple programs: American Studies; Asian and Asian American Studies; Black World Studies; International Studies; Latin American, Latino/a and Caribbean Studies; and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
