Maxwell Professor In United States Citizenship College Of Arts & Sciences

Boston University

Posted 7 months ago

VIEW JOBS 5/18/2021 12:00:00 AM 2021-08-16T00:00 The Department of Political Science at Boston University seeks to appoint the Maxwell Professor in United States Citizenship at the rank of advanced Associate or full Professor, with tenure, to begin in Fall 2022. Applicants in Political Science, from the subfields of American Politics, Comparative Politics, Political Economy, Public Policy, Political Theory, are encouraged to apply. We wish to recruit an intellectual leader with a distinguished record of scholarship who brings a critical lens on the development and meaning of citizenship. When George B. Maxwell established this Professorship in September 1918 the First World War was not yet concluded and citizenship was - in both de jure and de facto senses - narrowly defined. Indian Reservations were being consolidated, the Espionage and Sedition Acts of WWI limited free speech, Jim Crow was in force, the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granting women the right to vote had not been passed, and the purpose and limits of immigration were contested. The Maxwell Professorship supports scholars engaged in fostering an "intelligent understanding and appreciation of the rights, duties, inheritances and possibilities of our citizenship." A Maxwell Chair holder could understand citizenship broadly; for example, in the context of American political development, the tensions between communitarianism and cosmopolitanism, political theories of citizenship, or in comparative perspective. In keeping with George Maxwell's vision, we seek a scholar who is engaged in both public education and academic discourse. Boston University offers a rich and vibrant academic community for interdisciplinary research on citizenship; the Maxwell Professorship offers the opportunity to develop connections across disciplines, programs and centers. The candidate will teach both undergraduate and graduate courses. We seek candidates who prioritize inclusive practices in their scholarship, pedagogy, and campus engagement. DO NOT APPLY THROUGH THE BOSTON UNIVERSITY HR WEBSITE. Please submit a letter of interest to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/18615. The application must also include: a curriculum vitae, research and teaching statements, a list of references and a statement about your record of inclusion. Completed applications are due on 4 October 2021. We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor. Boston University Boston MA
