NEH Postdoctoral Positions in American Studies
The Department of English at Montclair State University is excited to announce that it will be offering four one-year NEH-funded postdoctoral positions in American Studies during the 2022 calendar year. We will be hiring four scholars whose research pertains to the theme of “Rediscovering American Democracy: Teaching the Humanities in the Time of Covid.” The ideal project will bring the methods of humanistic inquiry to bear on pressing social issues laid bare by the Covid-19 pandemic such as (but not limited to) racial justice, gender equality, environmental vulnerability, and the preservation and expansion of democratic ideals.
We are particularly interested in scholars working in the subfields of Asian-American, Black, Ethnic, Indigenous/Native American, Latinx, and Queer/Gender Studies, as well as Environmental Studies and Popular Culture. We seek candidates with a record of pedagogical and curricular innovation as well as scholarly excellence. Candidates’ scholarship should focus on the United States, but comparative, hemispheric, and transnational projects are welcome.
