The School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies at Arizona State University seeks applicants for a full-time, tenure-track, Assistant Professor of History position in U.S. Race and Politics in the 20th Century. We believe race remains foundational to any conversation about American politics. As ASU and the wider community debate the future, knowledge of the nation’s history as a polity, a continually contested racial regime, and a community – or as a multiplicity of each – is essential. We seek a scholar who will be able to work in a multi-disciplinary environment, engaging a diverse student audience across multiple learning platforms to provide exemplary teaching, research and community engagement on this important topic.
