One of the ways we realize our global mission is by supporting visiting professorships at important international academic institutions. The Terra Foundation will extend its teaching program in Asia by establishing a new program hosted jointly at Doshisha and Kobe universities, in the Kansai region of Japan. During the grant period, visiting professors will offer annual courses (undergraduate and graduate) in American art history before 1980. The position is based at the Graduate School of Global Studies (American Studies Cluster) at Doshisha University, in Kyoto. Responsibilities for the academic year include teaching two graduate-level courses and one undergraduate-level course at Doshisha University, and one combined graduate-undergraduate level course at Kobe University’s Graduate School of Intercultural Studies. The visiting professor will also offer individual research consultation to undergraduate and graduate students working in related fields, as well as organize an academic conference or symposium during the period of appointment.
The opportunity consists of three, one-year, non-renewable visiting professor positions, with the successful applicant serving in either the 2018–19, 2019–20 or 2020–21 academic years. Candidates may apply simultaneously for more than one of the academic years, but may be appointed for only one of the three.
The application process for these opportunities has closed. Visiting professors will be named in spring 2018.
