The Cornell University Department of Anthropology invites applications for an assistant or associate professor in the archaeology of liberation, its promises, possibilities, intricacies and illusions. We seek an archaeologist whose practice includes engaged, collaborative approaches that seek to contribute to public and descendant community engagement with the past and our collective imagination of a just future. Research interests might include, but are not limited to, archaeologies of exploitation and emancipation, the materiality of colonization and anti-colonial movements, heritage and its contestations, Indigenous survivance and resurgence, archaeological landscapes of violence, racialization, and resistance, and reparative engagements with material collections. Geographical area and technical specialization are open. The department is particularly interested in scholars who embrace its commitment to multimodal, collaborative, and community-based approaches to research and pedagogy.

This search is being undertaken under the auspices of CIVIC (Critical Inquiry into Values, Imagination, and Culture), the Provost’s Taskforce for Radical Collaboration in the Arts and Humanities. The successful candidate will contribute to CIVIC’s “Humanities and Public Life” focus, a multi-disciplinary initiative to bring humanistic approaches to bear on pressing questions of democracy, representation, expression, individuality, difference, citizenship, and inequality. The successful candidate is also expected to contribute to CIAMS’s commitment to public engagement in the practice of archaeological research. Interested applicants should have a PhD prior to the appointment start date and should upload the required materials to https://academicjobsoline.org/ajo/jobs/22517

Submit the following items to complete your application:

  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Diversity and Inclusion statement
  • Three references (actual letters acceptable but not required, just names and email addresses)

The deadline for submission of applications is October 15, 2022.
