Sarah Lawrence College invites applications for one guest faculty position in Modern and Contemporary Art History for the 2021-22 academic year. The position is a 2/1 and the candidate will teach one year-long lecture course in global histories of modern and contemporary art, and one seminar in the fall. We seek a specialist of any subfield or region within the field of Modern and Contemporary Art History whose teaching will explore diverse perspectives, methodologies, and geographies, such as modern and contemporary art of Africa and the African Diaspora or the Middle East, global histories of photography, or Indigenous contemporary art.
Please note that Sarah Lawrence teaching is unique: lecture courses (capped at 45 students) contain either two weekly lectures and bi-weekly “group conferences” (c. 15 students at a time) or one weekly lecture and weekly “group conferences” (c. 15 students at a time). Faculty teaching seminars (capped at 15 students) are required to meet individually with students biweekly for “conference,” which entails guiding the student through a semester-long independent research project.  

To apply go to

Review of applications will begin on April 1. Priority consideration will be given to those who apply by that date. The position will remain open until filled.
