Dear all,

The following two calls for applications for DH-related tenure-track positions at McGill University may be of interest to you or perhaps you could help circulate them to potential candidates.

McGill University's Faculty of Arts invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with a primary area of specialization in the field of cultural analytics and digital humanities. Candidates may be working in a variety of subfields across the humanities and social sciences, including literature, history, anthropology, music, photography, art history, cinema, linguistics, information studies, and cultural or media studies, and must have a demonstrable research program that uses computational analysis for the study of culture. Special emphasis should be given to methods that connect with critical approaches to cultural study, such as feminist, post-colonial, transnational, Indigenous, queer-, disability-, or race-theoretical, or other approaches that address questions of social justice and/or inequality.

The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (LLC) at McGill University invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor in Contemporary Spanish Cultural Studies with a concentration in Critical Theory and Digital Culture.

If I may piggyback on this to also request that you please let any undergraduate students who are contemplating graduate programs in DH know about our fledgling (and clearly growing) MA in DH:
