The Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies at San Diego State University invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor position.

We seek a historian who can advance our strong focus on borderlands, race, gender, sexuality, and social justice.  Specifically, we seek an intersectional and interdisciplinary scholar who specializes in 20th century Chicano/a/x history and who is theoretically and methodologically sophisticated and innovative. The topical area of specialization is open and may include racial formation(s), comparative racializations, cultural history, political and labor movements, visual arts, medical regimes and state policy, neurodiversity, care work and ethics, ethnic identity and community formation(s), penal institutions, and the Mexican diaspora, among others. In addition, we seek a scholar who has demonstrated experience with community-based research and engagement and who can help lead, promote, and expand the Chicana/o/x Archive, a community driven project with a wide variety of local Chicano Movement, civil rights, and feminist activism materials, housed in SDSU’s Love Library.
