The Department of History of Consciousness at the University of
California, Santa Cruz, invites applications for senior, tenured,
full-time faculty members beginning July 1, 2009. *
            We seek candidates with an international research reputation
based on innovative work that invites connections across disciplinary
divides. Scholars coming from different disciplines, inter-disciplines,
and other configurations of investigation and teaching are welcome in
History of Consciousness. Questions about subjectivities, cultures,
sexualities, ethnicities, histories, religions, and politics are all
invited, as are deep ties between scholarship and other kinds of
engagement in the world. Film and visual cultural studies,
psychoanalysis, semiotics, social structural investigations, historical
studies, ethnography, science and technology studies, literary studies,
and poetics are all crucial to the History of Consciousness. Regardless
of disciplinary background, candidates should have a comprehensive
knowledge in the bodies of thought and practice relevant to their
questions. We are interested in the ability to work in a range of
languages, especially non-European languages. We seek mature, versatile
scholars, who are committed to both theoretical and empirical questions
and whose strengths extend, challenge, and engage with the diverse
research cultures that characterize the department's faculty and
graduate students. The successful candidate will be expected to make a
sustained and active contribution to the department's research output,
exercise leadership in departmental development and administration,
advise and mentor graduate students across disciplinary differences,
assist in the development and management of the PhD program, and engage
creatively in the department's graduate and undergraduate teaching.
The History of Consciousness Department is in the Division of
Humanities, which also includes the Departments of American Studies,
Feminist Studies, History, Language Program, Linguistics, Literature,
Philosophy, and the Writing Program. The Division has a strong
tradition of collaborative and interdisciplinary work, and we especially
encourage applications from strongly qualified candidates eager to
extend their teaching and research activities across departmental and
disciplinary boundaries. The campus is especially interested in
candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the
academic community through their research, teaching and/or service.
