Lectureship in the History of the Global South, School of History - University of Leeds12-02-2021 17:06
The School of History at the University of Leeds brings together a dynamic group of scholars working on Global History across a range of time periods and geographical regions. This breadth of expertise feeds into a diverse undergraduate curriculum, as well as thriving MA and PhD programmes. We engage actively with local communities, and with partners at institutions around the world. We have particular strengths in African, Asian, and Caribbean History, as well as histories of race, empire and decolonisation. We are looking to appoint someone who enhances these existing research strengths and teaching interests, through expanding our areas of regional specialization or exploring alternative transnational and global connections.
As Lecturer, you will carry out research, teaching and management within the School, Faculty and University in any aspect of the History of the Global South from c. 1500 to the present day.
You will be able to teach at all levels of the undergraduate programme. You will take the lead in developing new and innovative teaching relating to your research expertise, which may include through the development of your own portfolio of modules and contributions to existing team-taught courses and programmes. You will contribute to relevant MA programmes, which may include the MA in Modern History, the MA in Race and Resistance, and/or the MA in Social and Cultural History. You will supervise research students. You will have a PhD or equivalent relevant experience in History or a cognate discipline, and relevant teaching experience.
We welcome applications from candidates working in any historical field, including those working on regional, international and transnational histories, those with specialist interests in marginalised histories (including of race, gender, sexuality, disability), those working on environmental history, and those taking interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the region.
