University of California, Davis

The University of California, Davis is pleased to announce a two-year Visiting Assistant Professorship for 2017-2019 in Racial Capitalism supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. We welcome research specializations addressing any aspect of the genealogies of racial capitalism in the U.S. and the Americas. We welcome but do not require candidates in research areas including race and ethnic studies, environmental studies, geography, gender and sexuality studies, popular cultures and media, historiography, or intersections of economics and legal policy.

We are particularly interested in applicants whose research profile builds upon existing work in the field of racial capitalism and pushes it in new directions.  The specific field is open, but interdisciplinary orientation in humanities and qualitative social sciences is preferred. Our new three-year Mellon Research Initiative in Racial Capitalism focuses on the historical relationship between race and capitalism, from the 15th century colonization of the Americas to the present. Sometimes explicitly, often only implicitly acknowledged, it shapes fundamental questions about inequality, value, life, bondage, and freedom, among others, across the disciplines of race and ethnic studies, literary studies, law, economics, sociology and anthropology. We directly address methodological and archival issues throughout and emphasize the workings of gender and sexuality throughout since the current field of work grouped under “racial capitalism” often subsumes gender and sexuality within supposedly larger, more encompassing categories such as “labor.”

This initiative is organized around three major themes: 1) culture; 2) space; 3) debt. “Culture” begins to think through the ways that economic truths are often not derived from fact but from affect and from cultural production. “Space” foregrounds how the effects of capitalism unfold unevenly across geographic space. “Debt” interrogates debt’s deeply racial history. We will consider junior scholars including recent PhDs and ABDs (the degree must be completed by July 1, 2017).

The Mellon Visiting Assistant Professor will participate in the activities of the Mellon Research Initiative in Racial Capitalism. Duties include teaching three courses per year, and serving as co-organizer of colloquia and other events involving faculty and graduate students.  The appointment will be housed in an appropriate department or program in the humanities or social sciences, in accordance with the background of the successful applicant (fields may include African and African American Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Asian American studies, Chicana/o studies, Economics, English,, History, Native American studies, Sociology, among others).

The Mellon Visiting Assistant Professor will receive an annual stipend of $57,600, plus health benefits, research funding, and relocation funds. To apply, please send a cover letter, research statement, c.v., statement of contributions to diversity, and three (3) letters of reference through the online application form found at https://recruit.ucdavis.edu/apply/JPF01430.

For full consideration applications must be received by February 17, 2017. The position is open until filled. The University of California is an equal opportunity employer with a strong institutional commitment to the achievement of diversity among its faculty and staff.

Rutgers University

Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis Postdoctoral Fellowships
The Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences and the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis invite applications from all disciplines for two positions as post-doctoral associates participating in the Center’s seminar for academic year 2017-2018 on “Black Bodies,” directed by Professors Marisa Fuentes and Bayo Holsey, Rutgers Department of History.

With vital urgency and new technologies of story-telling, we daily witness black bodies in peril. From histories of slavery and discrimination to more present modes of state violence, black bodies have been figured as disposable and resistive, silenced and demanding. This RCHA Seminar, “Black Bodies,” seeks to pull together several interdisciplinary frames of inquiry about ‘black bodies’ in various times, spaces, and geographies.  Attentive to the intersections/assemblages of race, gender and sexuality this seminar asks and invites questions concerning the many ways in which black bodies are subject to epistemic, historical, archival, state/non-state, biopolitical, and praxes of violence and erasure in global configurations.

We will also consider how we remember, grieve, represent, signify, and reclaim black bodies and lives in a variety of contexts.Our project pursues several questions to attend to and address black embodiment from interdisciplinary perspectives. These questions include but are not limited to:  How do ‘black bodies’ come into our frames of view? In what historical and geographic contexts are black bodies legible? How does “blackness” travel globally? How do we account for systems of racialization that mark a range of non-white bodies? What are the structures, ideologies, systems, and forms of power that subject black bodies around the world to different practices and forces of violence? How can we assess the negative health outcomes, psychological traumas, and increased mortality rates that accompany racism?

This RCHA project explores how various communities of color have reckoned with the trauma of/on black bodies. It also asks: what alternative visions of black self-hood have they constructed? How do empowering experiences of embodiment involving sexuality, procreation, and physicality challenge the widespread devaluation of black bodies? What strategies, methods, and paradigms are adequate to understanding how conditions of precarity continue to threaten black bodies in public and private—in material, structural, and theoretical ways?

We recognize the urgency of these questions given the increased visibility of state and other forms of violence against black bodies around the world, represented in images of gunshot-riddled African American bodies left dying on U.S. streets, victims of police violence, and African migrant bodies that wash up on European shores, the casualties of political crises and neo-liberal economic policies. We also recognize the powerful responses to this violence by activists, artists, and scholars who have reimagined black bodies in creative and meaningful ways.

Postdoctoral associates will receive salary of $48,000 for the year as well as a research allocation of $2,000; they will also receive Rutgers University health benefits. Associates will pursue research, participate in seminars and other activities at the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis, and will teach one three-credit course during the academic year.

Applications consisting of a CV, a project abstract of about 150 words, a three-page description of your research project and its significance to the theme of “Black Bodies,” and 3 letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically via Interfolio https://apply.interfolio.com/39220.  Applications must be received by February 1, 2017. Applicants must have received the Ph.D. between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2017.
