A Scholarly Society Dedicated to Africana Receptions of Ancient Greece and Rome


Tenure Track Job Opening (Generalist, Reception Studies), Department of Classics, College of the Holy Cross (Worcester, MA)


The Department of Classics at the College of the Holy Cross has been authorized to conduct a search for a tenure-track appointment to begin in Fall, 2020. Due to the criteria of the job description and the unique opportunities the future colleague will have to contribute to Classics at Holy Cross, the department particularly wanted to bring this position to the attention of members of Eos.

“We seek to hire a colleague who will contribute to maintaining our strengths and developing new ones over the next decade and beyond. Candidates must show promise of achievement in teaching, service, and research, the three areas in which Holy Cross evaluates for tenure. Candidates must be able to teach Greek and Latin at all levels (beginning to advanced); develop courses in translation that serve the evolving needs of our students; and contribute to our department’s cocurricular activities. In addition, we seek candidates who can contribute to one or more of these four areas of departmental emphasis: collaborative student research; diversification of the curriculum; outreach to audiences beyond Holy Cross; and exploration of new language pedagogy. We recognize that many graduate programs offer limited or perhaps no direct opportunities to develop a professional record in these areas, and we welcome applications that show candidates’ interest and initiative in gaining experience relevant to these endeavors. We encourage candidates to seek letters of recommendation that will help our search committee identify their strengths in these areas. We welcome applications from those working in any area of Classics and especially those interested in reception studies and/or digital humanities.”

The College of the Holy Cross uses Interfolio to collect all faculty job applications electronically. Applicants should submit all materials to https://apply.interfolio.com/66764 by September 17, 2019.
