Visiting Lecturer in Printmaking and other arts

The Art Department at Williams College seeks a printmaker or interdisciplinary artist who works expansively within the fields of printmaking and book arts, for a visiting position during the 2022-2023 academic year. This opportunity will include teaching one relief-printing course and a second course of the visitor’s choosing. The print course serves as an immersive introduction to the traditional and experimental possibilities within linoleum printing, exploring international print histories, materials, and techniques, with assignments ranging from introductory to intermediate. The additional course could focus on any material technique, including but not limited to quilting, exploring natural dyes, weaving, hand-built ceramics, and other printmaking techniques (monotypes, intaglio, bookbinding, woodblock printing). The print studio is non-toxic, aspiring to reduce its impact on landfills; all assignments, pedagogies, and materials must work in harmony with the printshop’s ethos.

The teaching load for this position is two courses plus a winter-study course (in January). Both classes may be taught in one semester, in which case, spring is preferable, but fall is also possible. It would also be possible to teach one course in the fall and one in the spring. The position includes benefits such as health insurance.

With 2000 undergraduates and about 40 graduate students in art history and development economics, Williams is an institution that places a high value on teaching as well as scholarship; consequently, we seek applicants who can demonstrate in their supporting materials a capacity for excellent teaching and for working effectively with a student population that is broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion.

Qualifications

We expect the visitor to hold an MFA or equivalent degree in their field at the commencement of the job, have teaching experience at undergraduate and/or graduate level, and have a vibrant creative practice.

Application Instructions

Applicants for this position should submit the following materials:

–A letter of application of no more than two pages. In the letter, please include information about your area of practice as well as your teaching experience and philosophy. Please also address the ways in which your creative practice and teaching address diversity, equity, and inclusion.

–Curriculum Vitae.

–A summary of creative interests (two pages). Please include a PDF of samples of your work.

Candidates who advance in the pool will be asked to provide the names of two people who are willing to provide letters of reference, and brief descriptions of two proposed courses, one in linoleum-cut printing, and the other, an elective in one of the areas described above.

We plan to interview finalists via Zoom in late February 2022.

Materials must be submitted via Interfolio, through the following link: http://apply.interfolio.com/99135

Please direct any questions to the search committee (Pallavi Sen [email protected] , or Guy Hedreen [email protected] ).
