Rank open professor in Queer of Color Critique, additional interest in Disability Studies/Crip Theory, and/or Feminist Technoscience Studies, and/or Migration
Williams College

Location: Williamstown
Open Date: Aug 07, 2023
Deadline:

Description
The Program in Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies seeks a professor of Queer of Color Critique, field open, ideally with interdisciplinary scholarship. We also especially welcome those with additional interests in Disability Studies/Crip Theory, Feminist Technoscience Studies, and/or Migration Studies. Preference will be given to candidates at the level of associate or full professor, but candidates with PhDs in hand by August 2024 will be given full consideration.

Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) is an interdisciplinary program designed to encourage students to focus critically on gender and sexuality. Many of our courses investigate how assumptions about gender and/or sexuality operate in society, shaping feminine, masculine, transgender, gay, lesbian, bisexual and queer identities, and how they influence social and political structures. Integral to Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is the idea of intersectionality - that (amongst other axes of identification) race, ethnicity, class, ability, nationality, and religion are important factors in any critical understanding of gender and sexuality.

WGSS has existed in some form at Williams for over 30 years. Women's Studies was formalized into a program in 1983, and name changes over the years have reflected increasing attention in the interdisciplinary field to issues of gender and sexuality studies. We have offered a major since 2002, and have graduated over 300 majors and concentrators since the program was established.



Qualifications
The candidate should be able to teach introductory courses, including WGSS 101 and a Foundations in Sexuality Studies seminar in addition to electives. The teaching load is two courses per semester (2-2) plus a January winter term course every other year. We are especially interested in candidates from historically underrepresented groups whose scholarship and teaching contribute to the breadth and excellence of our academic community. In addition, Williams offers faculty participation in the colleges professional development program First3 and in the NCFDD Faculty Success Program, and support through the newly established Rice Center for Teaching. Information about the department and current curriculum can be found at: https://wgss.williams.edu

Salary is commensurate to rank and the faculty member will be eligible for a full package of faculty benefits as described online at hr.williams.edu/benefits. Faculty also receive an annual allowance for research and professional travel.



Application Instructions
Candidates should submit to the department chair, Professor Kathryn R. Kent, via Interfolio http://apply.interfolio.com/129705, the materials below:

A cover letter of no more than three pages that identifies: a summary of current and future scholarship, teaching interests and experience, ability to work effectively with a broadly diverse student population, and prior service

experience and future goals for serving WGSS and the broader college community.

A curriculum vitae.

Separate one-paragraph descriptions of proposed courses

Three letters of recommendation

The deadline for receipt of materials is October 2, 2023.

As the search advances, the committee plans to conduct online interviews with the semi-finalists, and those candidates will be asked to provide a writing sample. Additionally, candidates who advance to the finalist stage will be invited to campus.

We recognize that these are uncertain times with changing health and safety restrictions given the endemic nature of COVID-19 and other viral illnesses. This search will follow all state and college policies, and we anticipate collaborating with candidates to best navigate health and safety during the recruitment process.
