Building the State of the Arts together
The Faculty of Arts is building on a longstanding tradition of four centuries and their mission is to create positive societal and academic impact through relevant, high-quality teaching and research. The faculty strives to remain an ambitious top-ranking faculty with excellent education and state of the art research, with a strong international orientation, firmly rooted in the North of The Netherlands. The faculty builds and shares knowledge which benefits society, and educates over 5.000 Dutch and international students to become forward-looking, articulate and independent academics.
The faculty offers a multidisciplinary environment and a wide range of degree programmes. Its research, which is internationally acclaimed, covers the fields of Archaeology, Cultural Studies, History, International Relations, Journalism, Language and Literary Studies, and Linguistics.
Research conducted at the Faculty of Arts is very diverse and multidisciplinary and organised in research institutes, each comprised of multiple smaller research groups. The English Department encompasses all literature written in English from circa 1550 to the present, from the language's traditional heart in the UK to North America, expanding to Africa and Australasia. The curriculum of Modern English Literature and Culture features the principal literary periods and a diversity of critical approaches
The Faculty of Arts is seeking to appoint a Chair of Modern English Literature and Culture with a clear vision on the future of literary studies and an established reputation for excellence in research, teaching, and impact. This role is particularly suitable for an enthusiastic academic leader who shows a willingness and ability to lead the Modern English Literature and Culture group and to strengthen its research profile and promote the academic talent and career development of the team. A focus on eighteenth- or early nineteenth-century literature, including British and/or American Romanticism or the Black Atlantic may be an advantage.
