Descripción 

The Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures at James Madison University invites applications for a tenure-track in Spanish at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 2022.   We are seeking candidates prepared to teach language courses at all levels of the undergraduate curriculum. 

This hire forms part of a multi-department cohort hire in Latinx studies in the College of Arts and Letters, the largest academic unit at JMU.  Home to ten academic departments, several interdepartmental programs, and 269 full-time faculty, Arts and Letters is the intellectual home of humanities, social sciences, communication, and media programs at JMU.  Our Latinx cohort hire will bring six and perhaps as many as seven new colleagues specializing in media, rhetoric, communication, creative writing, sociology, and romance languages.  This cohort will join recent hires in Latinx US history, politics, and anthropology to build on already existing strengths across a variety of fields and intellectual areas.  Harrisonburg is home to a vital Latinx community with whom JMU has a deep history of interconnection.  This is an exciting time to join a college-wide effort to enhance research, teaching, and scholarship in this vital area of work.
