Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies.
The College of the Liberal Arts invites applications from established scholars to guide the expansion of its existing Classics Department into a Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies. The position is open as of July 1, 1995. The Department of Classics now has five full-time Classicists and other associated faculty.
The new Department of Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies will be an interdisciplinary unit encompassing linguistic and cultural aspects of Classical and Near Eastern antiquity, as well as other areas relevant to the history and culture of the Mediterranean basin. The Head will assume responsibility for the development of this new department, and will be expected to establish curricular and intellectual linkages with other programs, such as Religious Studies and Ancient History. The disciplinary specialization of the Head is open, but a significant record of scholarly accomplishment is required.
Expertise in Greek and/or Latin is essential, and expertise in a Near Eastern language is a definite asset. Administrative experience is desirable but not a requirement.
