The Program in Latino/a Studies in the Global South at Duke University (LSGS) invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship for the academic year 2020-2021. The LSGS postdoc will teach two courses per year; pursue research; and participate in the development of public and intellectual programming in Latino/a Studies as well as the Department of Romance Studies at Duke. The successful candidate will be housed in the Department of Romance Studies and will receive a salary of $50,000, plus benefits. The postdoctoral fellowship is for one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year.

Start date: August 2020

Qualifications: We seek interdisciplinary scholars with a comparative, innovative, and transnational approach, grounded in U.S. Latina, Latino, and Latinx literary history.

Research interests may include any––or a combination––of the following areas: the nineteenth-century translinguistic Americas; comparative U.S. literary history; Spanish as an “American” language; print culture and the global south; historical agency and memory; ethnoracial formations; gender and sexuality; citizenship; empire; migratory flows; hemispheric studies; and related topics.

LSGS is particularly interested in scholars who move beyond traditional studies of communities bounded by a singular national origin.

Candidates must have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant field by the position start date.

To receive full consideration, please submit the following application materials by 15 January 2020:

(i) letter of intent; (ii) curriculum vitae; (iii) research proposal; (iv) outline of possible course offerings; (v) 20 pp. article-length writing sample; (vi) graduate transcript; and (vii) three confidential letters of recommendation
