theory. Candidates who make connections in their research and/or

diasporic literatures are also desirable. The successful candidate
will join a collegial department of twenty-five full-time faculty.
The English major includes emphases in literature, professional and
technical writing, and English teaching and literature.
Opportunities include undergraduate and graduate teaching,
scholarly work, and departmental service. The successful candidate
will teach rhetoric and composition classes and will also be
invited to revise existing courses, develop new courses, and
collaborate with other programs to develop curricula related to
diversity and African-American studies. Ph.D. in English (or
closely related field, such as American Studies) and experience
teaching English at the college level are required. ABD
