Just sharing the information, as usual. I don’t have any more information than what is posted as follows.

The Department of English invites applications for a faculty position in feminist theory, rank open. We are interested in hiring a scholar working at the leading edge of feminist and gender literary theory across genres, historical moments and cultural contexts, media, and performance. Areas of particular interest include but are not limited to: intersectionality; global comparatist and postcolonial approaches; biopolitics; affect and sensation studies; psychoanalysis; new materialisms; queer and trans; and critical race theory. We are looking for candidates with an interest in teaching the diverse intellectual genealogies of feminism and whose record of professional service reflect a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
