INTERDISCIPLINARY FACULTY POSITIONS IN THE EXPRESSIVE CULTURE AND
DIVERSITY OF THE USA'S UPPER MIDWEST


The University of Wisconsin-Madison has created a cluster of three
interdisciplinary faculty positions concerned with the traditional
expressive culture or folklore of the Upper Midwest's diverse
peoples. Positions will be affiliated with the Center for the Study
of Upper Midwestern Cultures (http://www.wisc.edu/csumc), the Folklore
Program (http://www.folklore.wisc.edu), and allied departments. The
aim of the cluster is to foster innovative, sophisticated, and
collaborative research, teaching, and outreach. We welcome candidates
with diverse theoretical orientations and topical foci. Areas of
focus could include but are not limited to: the evolving practices of
verbal, musical, customary, and material cultural expressions by
several of the region's varied American Indian, African American,
Asian American, European American, and Hispanic American peoples;
their relationships to respective homelands and diasporas; and the
documentation, maintenance, revival, representation, even invention of
their traditions by activists, artists, educators,
entrepreneurs, communities, and states. 

Successful candidates will use the cluster structure as a catalyst for
collaborative research; maintain their own independent research
programs; advise students; teach at both the undergraduate and
graduate levels; develop new courses if appropriate; participate in
the governance of the Center for the Study of Upper Midwestern
Cultures and their respective departments, programs, colleges, and/or
the University.

Successful candidates will also be experienced in and committed to the
presentation of cultural research to the public through such modes as
school curricula, festivals, media productions, museum exhibits, 
technical assistance workshops, and community-oriented archives.

Appointments will be made at the level of assistant professor or a
higher rank if qualifications warrant. The candidates' tenure homes
will be established in one or more departments appropriate to his/her
background.

Required: Ph.D. in a humanities discipline such as Folklore, Cultural
Anthropology, Cultural Geography, Languages and Linguistics, Ethnic
Studies, and Ethnomusicology. For a tenured position, a demonstrable
record of excellence in research, teaching, and service is required. 

Applications should include a CV and a statement describing research,
teaching, and outreach interests, accomplishments, and direction, as
related to the description above. Names and contact information for
three references should also be included. Materials should be sent to:

901 University Bay Drive
