Postdoctoral Fellowship in the History of Pre-modern Islamic Art and Architecture
The History of Art Department at The Ohio State University invites applications for an ACLS Postdoctoral Fellow in the history of pre-modern Islamic art and architecture. Specialists in all periods, from approximately 700 to 1700 AD, and geographic regions (including Central, and South Asia) are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will carry out research on pre-modern Islamic art or architectural history; teach one course per semester for four semesters, the exact classes to be determined in accordance with the candidate’s area of expertise and departmental needs; and deliver one public lecture and one formal presentation of research to the department and wider university community during the two-year term of appointment.
Diverse in terms of its temporal and geographic coverage, the faculty of the History of Art Department at OSU is particularly interested in questions of historiography and critical theory; in cross-cultural exchange and the negotiation of artistic, cultural, and political boundaries; in art’s role in mediating social action; and in issues of representation and the affective engagement of the image. Applications from scholars whose work relates to one or more of these areas of inquiry are especially welcome.
Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2016, and we encourage submission before that date. However, applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
