The University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada is hiring an assistant professor of English with Specialization in Environmental Literatures and Ecocritical Inquiry and/or Decolonial and Indigenous Studies for a tenure-track position. Applications are due by March 11, 2022.
According to department member Jennifer Schaker, the hiring committee welcomes applications from folklore and adjacent disciplines. The search is open to scholars who consider themselves specialists in one or the other field regardless of period or location. The appointment will begin on July 1, 2022.
The objective is to hire someone whose research and teaching speaks to the urgent political dilemmas facing present and future generations. That work can be situated in conventionally defined historical periods and literatures, or it can be staged in relation to wider definitions of tradition, community, environment, sociability, and mediation. Applicants should consider this as an opportunity to further the discipline-wide movement towards decolonization, the historical understanding of climate justice, and the interconnectedness of social and environmental justice.
