Update (16 November 2020): We are now recruiting for this position and further particulars for the Associate Professorship (or Professorship) in Black British History, c.1900-present are available here. The closing date is noon on Monday 14 December, 2020.

The Queen’s College is pleased to announce plans to appoint an historian with knowledge of the culture, society or politics of people of African and/or Caribbean descent in Britain to the newly established Brittenden Fellowship in Black British History along with an Associate Professorship or Professorship in Oxford’s History Faculty, starting in September 2021.

The new postholder will become one of the College’s two Fellows in History, replacing John Davis, who is retiring at the end of this academic year. It is expected that the appointee will have an interest in building outwards from their knowledge to develop teaching in modern British Isles, European and World History and more specialised options in (for example) race and ethnicity history, histories of migration, post-colonialism, social activism, identity, and memory.
