The Department of American Studies in the College of Arts, Languages & Letters at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa invites applicants for a 9-month, tenure-track, full-time assistant professorship in Korean diaspora, to begin Fall 2024.

The Department of American Studies is committed to furthering UH Manoa’s mission as a Native Hawaiian place of learning and has a particular strength in the critical study of America from the vantage point of Hawai?i, Pacific, and Asia. The department as a whole places emphasis on pursuing social justice through research, teaching, and community engagement.

We are looking for a colleague with demonstrated expertise in Korean diaspora, immigration, and/or transnationalism in the context of American Studies. This colleague will teach undergraduate and graduate courses related to Korean diaspora as well as core and elective courses in American Studies. The colleague will also be expected to be an active member of the Center for Korean Studies, develop new courses on Korea-related subjects, and explore the archival collections on the Korean diaspora housed at the university. We are especially interested in applicants with expertise in interdisciplinary research methods.
