The position will be part of the Comparative Culture Program, which also
includes literature, philosophy and religion, in the Faculty of Liberal Arts
beginning in Spring 2008.
Applicants are expected to have completed a Ph. D. by the time of

comparative perspective, which may include issues of cross-cultural and
interdisciplinary contacts. Candidates who are able to offer courses in
Korean art history or visual culture are particularly encouraged to apply.
Although expertise may be held in any period, commitment to teaching Asian
art and culture broadly and comparatively is essential (courses such as
Asian art and literature, Asian art and religion). The candidate will be
expected to contribute to the core program by teaching a section in Critical
Thinking. The language of instruction is English. Japanese language ability
and professional or scholarly experience in Japan would be assets. The

research interests, teaching ability, and reasons for the applicant's
interest in seeking employment in Japan), a curriculum vitae, the names and
addresses of three referees, and a brief description of courses the
applicant has taught or would be prepared to develop. All applications
should be postmarked no later than April 1, 2007, and addressed to:
