        From: Jacqueline Wernimont 
        Subject: Job: Open Rank, Digital Humanities and Social Engagement

Dartmouth College invites applications for an open rank tenure-track
position in Digital Humanities and Social Engagement (DHSE). One or more
hires will be a part of a new endowed research cluster, created through a
Presidential initiative to extend Dartmouth's impact on the world through
interdisciplinary faculty teams. The DHSE cluster focuses on feminist,
anti-racist work in both teaching and research and promotes social
engagement as a conscious research agenda for the humanities. Its work will
range across diverse areas, including the social and ethical dimensions of
digital technologies, digital tools that use the humanities to foster civic
engagement, and data and technologies that promote justice. This
interdisciplinary appointment will be based in one or more academic units
appropriate to the research and teaching areas of the successful candidate.

We seek a colleague whose work is socially engaged and demonstrates a
robust commitment to research and teaching on digital cultures, tools, and
interventions from both historical and contemporary perspectives. The
successful candidate will have demonstrated experience working
collaboratively and, ideally, of working on research or production with
undergraduate students. Scholars working on digital diasporas, Black,
Indigenous, Latinx data and digital histories and practices, and/or
intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and ability with digital cultures
are especially encouraged to apply. Scholars working across the boundaries
of theory and practice, technology and art, public and private are welcome.
Applicants must either be ABD or hold a PhD in a humanities or related
digital humanities discipline at the time of appointment. Early career
scholars from under represented minorities may be able to take advantage of
a Mellon funded post-doctoral position that will lead directly into the
tenure-track position.
