Dartmouth College invites applications for an open rank tenure-track position in Digital Humanities and Social Engagement (DHSE). One or more hires will be a part of a new endowed research cluster, created through a Presidential initiative to extend Dartmouth’s impact on the world through interdisciplinary faculty teams. The DHSE cluster focuses on feminist, anti-racist work in both teaching and research and promotes social engagement as a conscious research agenda for the humanities. Its work will range across diverse areas, including the social and ethical dimensions of digital technologies, digital tools that use the humanities to foster civic engagement, and data and technologies that promote justice. This interdisciplinary appointment will be based in one or more academic units appropriate to the research and teaching areas of the successful candidate.
We seek a colleague whose work is socially engaged and demonstrates a robust commitment to research and teaching on digital cultures, tools, and interventions from both historical and contemporary perspectives. The successful candidate will have demonstrated experience working collaboratively and, ideally, of working on research or production with undergraduate students. Scholars working on digital diasporas, Black, Indigenous, Latinx data and digital histories and practices, and/or intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and ability with digital cultures are especially encouraged to apply. Scholars working across the boundaries of theory and practice, technology and art, public and private are welcome. Applicants must either be ABD or hold a PhD in a humanities or related digital humanities discipline at the time of appointment. Early career scholars from under represented minorities may be able to take advantage of a Mellon funded post-doctoral position that will lead directly into the tenure-track position.
