UC Irvine -- Japanese Literature and Culture, tenure track

Application consideration begins Nov. 14, 2005.

The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Irvine, invites applications for a tenured position in Japanese literature and culture, and looks forward to reviewing candidates with distinguished publication records and strong familiarity with cultural theory and critical Asian Studies. Especially welcome are scholars whose fields of specialization (critical theory, intellectual history, performance, popular culture, [post]colonialism, gender studies, religious studies, and visual studies, to name a few) complement and/or intersect creatively with those of the current faculty, and whose work accommodates diverse geographical and disciplinary interests. Although its preference is for someone in pre-Meiji, the department would consider applicants from other periods (including modern). It is very interested in applicants who are committed to enhancing its programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Finally, the department values interdisciplinary approaches to research and teaching, and it would welcome applicants whose interests overlap with other units in UC Irvine's School of Humanities, including Asian-American Studies, Comparative Literature, History, Visual Studies, and Women's Studies.

Please send any inquiries and letters of application, complete CV, and at least three letters of recommendation to:
