The Department of World Languages and Cultures in the College of Arts and Sciences at American University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor, in Latin American and/or Latinx Studies, to begin in Fall 2018. Specifically, we seek applications from candidates engaged in scholarship on Afro-Hispanic/Latinx studies whose research and teaching address the intersection of issues of race, culture, language, and ethnicity that are specific to the Latinx and/or Latin American experience. The successful candidate will teach four courses per year in their area of specialization at the undergraduate and Master?s level, in addition to providing support to core courses in Latin American Studies and Spanish language. Applicants should have a PhD or anticipate PhD completion by August 2018 in relevant fields such as literature, cultural studies, or sociolinguistics.

Applicants should be effective teachers and demonstrate both an established record and ongoing potential for excellence in scholarship. Native or near-native fluency in Spanish is required. The ideal candidate will demonstrate specific interest in the role language plays in formations of race and ethnicity, both with regard to power relations generated between and across cultures in contexts of colonization and migration, and to the emergence of shared cultural and linguistic experiences.
