Post-doc Position: Colonial Latin American History of Art & Architecture, Brown University

Tuesday, December 18, 2018   (0 Comments)

Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship
Center for the Study of the Early Modern World and the Department of History of Art and Architecture
Brown University

Brown University invites applications for a 2-year Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Early Modern Studies and History of Art and Architecture, with a specialization in the study of Colonial Latin American Art and Architectural History. This position is to be held jointly at the Cogut Institute for the Humanities and the interdisciplinary Center for the Study of the Early Modern World [EMOW] as well as the Department of History of Art and Architecture [HIAA], effective July 1, 2019.

Our goal is to appoint an exceptional scholar of Early Modern Colonial Latin American Art and Architecture. The successful candidate will teach two courses per year in the Department of the History of Art & Architecture cross-listed with EMOW and the Cogut Institute’s Humanities course offerings. The particular sub-fields and time periods for this position are open to scholars of early modern Colonial Latin American art, architecture, and visual culture. We are particularly interested in scholars who would approach the subject through non-traditional approaches to visual culture and the built environment, and who would capitalize on new theoretical models and their relationship to memory and tradition, and varied responses to Western techniques and ideologies. We can also envision courses that examine the historical dimensions of Colonial Latin American cultures and their expression in art and architecture. The fellow will also be affiliated with the Cogut Institute and is expected to participate in the weekly Tuesday seminars as well as other activities of the Institute.

The PhD must be in hand by July 1, 2019 and must have been awarded in the last five years. A salary of $61,500 is offered, with an increase to $63,907 the second year, plus benefits and a reimbursable research budget of $2,000 per year. Please send letter of application, C.V., dissertation abstract, and dossier (3 letters of recommendation).

Applicants must apply online: Applications will be reviewed beginning February 15, 2019 and will be accepted until the position is filled.
