The School of Religion, Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University invites applications for a Tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor with specialization in Religion in Diaspora: Diversity and Inclusion, with a preferred starting date of July 1, 2018.

We are seeking a specialist who studies manifestations of religion in the contemporary world as they have moved outside the contexts in which they have historically developed. Candidates’ research should place specific emphasis on racialization and/or ethnicity as factors in the study of religion.

Some examples might include: religion, racialized identities and migration; religious traditions/identities in the African, Asian or Caribbean diasporas; religion, indigeneity and (post)colonialism; experiences of diversity and/or inclusion of diaspora religion(s) within new contexts; religion, cultural/ethnic minorities and human rights; ethnicization and religious identities in diaspora religion; diaspora religion(s) in cultural exchange; new religious movements in diaspora.

Knowledge of a specific religious tradition would be considered an asset, as would the ability to teach methods and theories in Religious Studies. The successful candidate will be expected to share in the teaching of the School of Religion’s first year courses and contribute to the MA program in Religious Studies.
