The successful candidate will have a strong record of excellence in teaching and research and a demonstrated commitment to equity and inclusion. While we seek a candidate with expertise in Native North American literatures, we also welcome global and/or comparative perspectives on Anglophone Indigenous literature, print culture, new media, and multiple modalities of “writing.” We especially encourage applications from scholars who work in collaboration with First Nations or Native American nations, and whose research engages with Indigenous communities and/or language revitalization.
