Detailed information about the position and application procedures are available here: Open positions
The University of Virginia McIntire Department of Music invites applications for the position of Assistant Professor, tenure-track, in Hip Hop and the Global South, focusing on scholarship and/or production. Areas of teaching, research, and performance specialization might include (but are not limited to) hip hop, DJ culture, and related forms of music (such as house, electronica, gqom), African-American, Asian, Latin American or Caribbean musics, hip hop production, or other modes of performative creativity.
The Global South refers both to a post-Cold War cartographic conception that embraces Africa, Latin America, Asia, including parts of the Middle East and the Pacific Islands; and politico-cultural spaces shaped by global histories of capitalism, empire, race and diaspora. In this regard, the American South, the Caribbean, the border zones of Latino/Latina Study and immigrant communities of European nations and cities are as much part of the Global South as are Nigeria and Argentina.
Application review will begin on October 31, 2016 and the position will remain open until filled.
The University of Virginia is an equal opportunity / affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
