University of Virginia Assistant Professorship in Digital Humanities

Deadline: January 15

Length: Tenure-track

Comments: Focus on “textual analysis or big history”; ” UVA’s excellence in textual studies, bibliography and the history of book as well as diverse programs in literatures and languages will enrich this professor’s opportunities, yet potential home departments also include Media Studies, Anthropology, Art History, Drama, Music, Classics, Philosophy, History, and Religious Studies. With possible affiliation in programs such as Linguistics, Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies, South Asia Center, East Asia Center, Women and Gender Studies, or American Studies, the appointment nevertheless is tenure-track within a department of Arts and Sciences rather than a center, institute, library, or program.”
