Dance: Africanist/African diaspora. We seek an artist/scholar whose work stems from an Afro-centric perspective to join a vibrant Dance department and who can offer studio-based courses and dance theory courses in fairly equal proportions. Expertise based in/informed by Africanist roots, whether traditional or contemporary (African, Afro-Brazilian, Afro-Caribbean, or other African diaspora) forms is desired. Responsibilities include teaching introductory to advanced courses in dance technique and dance theory (ie, dance composition, cultural studies, dance history and/or improvisation); choreographing work with students; participating in the artistic, administrative, and scholarly life of the department; advising students; assisting in and mentoring student concerts; participating in departmental curriculum design and development; and serving the greater campus community. The department values intellectual and artistic diversity and supports interdisciplinarity in teaching and research. We encourage the creative development of new questions, methods, and lines of inquiry; seek to integrate practice and theory in course offerings; and encourage students to explore both disciplinary depth and interdisciplinary breadth in the field. Dance technique/studio courses emphasize a kinesiologically sound, somatically based approach to teaching. Dance courses are for majors and non-majors and seek to develop students' understanding of dance as a complex, multifaceted discipline.
MFA or Ph.D. required; degrees in disciplines other than Dance will be considered. Teaching experience and evidence of artist/scholar activity required as well as demonstrated interest in teaching in a liberal arts environment. Candidates should submit a letter of application which addresses their qualifications for this position and summarizes their artistic/scholarly interests, a CV, teaching philosophy statement, teaching interests statement, and contact information (name, telephone, and email) for three references by October 1 to Professor Cynthia J Williams, Dance Department. Candidates of interest may be invited to submit graduate transcripts, videotapes/dvds of choreographic work, and/or further documentation of artistic/scholarly work through Inter-folio. - See more at: https://chroniclevitae.com/jobs/0000845879-01#sthash.6OFwxiHU.dpuf
