Job: Lecturer in Francophone Black Studies

University of Edinburg

The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures is looking to appoint a Lecturer in Francophone Black Studies to join its vibrant teaching and research community. We are aiming to recruit a lecturer with a proven track record of research in one of the following or related fields: Francophone Black and/or Africana Studies; Francophone histories of colonialism and its legacies, including in North Africa, subsaharan francophone Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific; Critical Race Theory (with reference to the French-speaking world); and Decoloniality. The person appointed will diversify our existing teaching provision within the French and Francophone Studies section by offering new research-led courses within their field, as well as contributions to team teaching on existing core modules in French language, and in French and Francophone culture and political history. The appointed lecturer will be joining colleagues in the Department of European Languages and Cultures (DELC) with related interests in the fields of Postcolonial Studies, Critical Race Theory, Indigeneity, Social Justice and Decoloniality, and will collaborate with other language areas (notably in the ‘Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies’ section) as part of a broader remit to work on decolonizing our curriculum.

Application Deadline 9 July 2021.
