Histories of Slavery, Emancipation, and the Afterlives of Slavery The
Department of History at the University of Chicago invites applications for
a tenured appointment (associate or full professor) in the histories of
slavery, emancipation, and the afterlives of slavery to begin on or after
July 1, 2020. We seek applications from historians of Africa, the Atlantic
World, the Caribbean, Latin America, North America, and the United States.
We especially welcome candidates working on Afro-descendent slavery, and
from scholars of race, ethnicity, empire, migration, gender, and sexuality,
but will consider scholars from any subspecialty related to the search’s
core themes and scope. This search is part of a larger cluster hiring
initiative in this field that will lead to multiple appointments. Among the
goals of the search is increasing the diversity of the faculty in the
Department of History, and we therefore welcome applicants who are from
groups that are historically underrepresented in the academy. Application
Instructions Applicants must apply online at the University of Chicago’s
Academic Recruitment job board at http://apply.interfolio.com/65473 and
include 1) a cover letter, 2) a CV, 3) a research statement 4) a teaching
statement 5) an article or chapter-length writing sample, and 6) names of
three potential referees. Consideration of applications will begin on
September 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled or the
search is closed; early submission is encouraged. Equal Employment
