Visiting Assistant Professor of History - Europe and Modernity

Location: Walla Walla, Washington 99362
Open Date: Feb 02, 2023

Located in the historic community of Walla Walla, Whitman's beautiful tree-lined campus is home to an intellectually diverse, dynamic, and supportive community of some 500 staff and faculty serving roughly 1,500 students from the local region and across the globe. With exceptional students, accomplished faculty and staff, along with a fiercely loyal and growing number of engaged alumni, Whitman College continues to build on its national reputation for academic excellence as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.

The Department of History at Whitman College is seeking candidates for a one-year position at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor beginning August 2023. A Ph.D. is required upon starting the position.

We are looking for a scholar whose work involves the histories of “Europe” and “Modernity.” We are excited for an opportunity to hire a colleague whose research and teaching engages with a critical analysis of such constructs as “Europe” and “European-ness” in the modern period. Potential secondary fields can include any of the following areas: medieval and early-modern periods/periodizations, framings of - and evidence to the contrary of - an essentialized “Middle East” and/or “ancient Mediterranean,” with any-and-all of the above built into codependency with ideologies of “modern Europe.”

The successful candidate will offer existing courses in “Revolution and the Impact of Mass Culture: Modern Europe,” “Twentieth-Century Europe,” and “Modern European Imperialism,” as well as two courses related to their area of expertise for a five course load over the academic year.
