The Humanities Council invites applications for the Behrman Professorship in the Humanities, with one three-year professorship to begin in AY 2023-24 and another to begin in AY 2024-25. The position is a three-year appointment, with three professors appointed at any one time. Applicants must be Princeton faculty of tenured rank.
The Behrman Professor will enhance the continuity of the double-credit, year-long sequence “Interdisciplinary Approaches to Western Culture” (HUM 216-219) and raise the profile of the Program in Humanistic Studies by supporting the independent research of certificate juniors and seniors. In addition to coordinating a complex course with a 12-faculty team, the Behrman Professor will design and lead activities that offer advanced students explicit practice in bridging a diversity of fields and disciplines.
The certificate in Humanistic Studies enrolls students from all divisions of the University, offering three interdisciplinary sequences, colloquia and excursions, and team-taught seminars in established and emerging fields, including urban, medical, environmental, and digital humanities.
Applications must be submitted online by April 8, 2022. Inquiries may be addressed to Dr. Kathleen Crown, Executive Director of the Humanities Council, firstname.lastname@example.org.
