positions in any of the following areas of specialization: American
studies (nineteenth- and twentieth-century), writing and rhetoric
(including digital rhetoric), British nineteenth-century studies, and

book, non-fiction prose, poetry, popular culture, the early modern
period and the long eighteenth century. The appointments will be

Successful candidates will contribute to interdisciplinary programs at
both the undergraduate and the graduate levels.

Review. The Modern Culture Multi-Media Centre, a state-of-the-art
facility dedicated to research of modern and contemporary culture, will
be launched later this year.
