in the field of Chinese literature, to begin July 1, 2012. The appointee
will teach undergraduate and graduate courses; the field and period of
specialization are open, but we have particular interest in scholars working
in the following fields: early China, fiction, theater, or modern literature
and/or film. Candidates should have completed a Ph.D. by the time of
appointment. Send letter of application, curriculum vitae, a sample chapter
