The Department of History of Art in Cambridge is delighted to invite applications to their very first Global Humanities Visiting Professorships, to start in the autumn of 2021.  The Department is seeking to select candidates in three areas in the field: Islamic*, African, and East Asian art and architecture.

Those approved as non-residential scholars will hold the title of Visiting Professor for the entire academic year 2021-22 and will have access during the whole year to the University’s resources (housed principally in the University Library, Fitzwilliam Museum, and Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology).  They will be asked to spend two weeks at an appropriate time of their choice during one of the three academic terms contributing to undergraduate and graduate teaching by offering a pair of master classes embedded in those University resources, and will be invited to give a talk about their own research and its broader contribution to the field in the Department’s relevant public seminars. The Department will also seek to draw on the expertise of these scholars in enhancing its curricular targets as well as identifying funding sources to continue to sustain research and teaching in these subject areas.
