 *Tenure Track Faculty Hire in Art History and Classics
Ancient Visual Culture
Digital Humanities Initiative
University of Georgia *

The Lamar Dodd School of Art and the Department of Classics at the
University of Georgia invite applications for a tenure­‐track, joint
appointment of an assistant professor specializing in ancient visual culture
and the reception of the classical tradition and skilled at integrating
imaging technologies within his/her scholarship and teaching. Candidates
should hold the Ph.D. in art history and present evidence of successful
research and teaching in digital humanities. This appointment is part of an
ongoing effort by the University of Georgia to build a significant digital
humanities infrastructure involving faculty and facilities housed in various
departments and collaborating with the Willson Center for the Humanities.

The successful candidate will be asked to teach undergraduate and graduate
courses in ancient visual culture that are interdisciplinary in approach and
that incorporate digital technology, allowing students to visualize the
natural and built landscapes of the ancient past and study how that physical
context impacted art, literature, philosophy, and other cultural endeavors.
These courses will be cross-‐listed in both departments. The candidate must
be committed to scholarship and demonstrate potential achievement in the
discipline commensurate with the university's research mission. S/He must
have excellent communication skills and participate in committee work and
other service to the undergraduate and graduate programs.

The Lamar Dodd School of Art, housed in a new, state­‐of­‐the­‐art building,
has 55 full-‐time faculty members, including 8 art historians, and enjoys a
close working relationship with the nearby Georgia Museum of Art. The
classics faculty numbers 13, with specialties in Greek, Latin, classical
archaeology, ancient history, late antiquity, linguistics, and the classical
tradition. Both units are part of the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences.

This position will be available August 2011. The final application deadline
for full consideration is January 31, 2011. Applicants should submit a
detailed letter summarizing their qualifications, curriculum vitae, names
and contact information for three references, an example of scholarship, and
other supporting materials to
