BSANA forward from Kostis Smyrlis, New York University:
The history department at the University of New Hampshire will be advertising for a tenure-track position in history at the assistant level. We are seeking applications from scholars who work on periods from Classical Greece up through 1000 A.D. The advertisement indicates a strong interest in candidates whose research focuses on Late Antiquity, which is understood very broadly in both geographical and chronological terms, and includes the Byzantine Empire, the Ummayad Caliphate, Roman Africa and Near East, the Persian empire, as well as the Hellenistic World broadly conceived. The successful candidate will be expected to teach one section of the first half World History per year, and have an understanding of the approaches taken by specialists in World History to teaching this field.
