Bridgewater State University — Assistant Professor of Colonial and Revolutionary U.S. History

The History Department at Bridgewater State University trains students to engage in a sustained investigation of the record of humanity’s existence. Its faculty represent a wide range of specializations in United States and European history, as well as the history of societies in Africa, East Asia, Canada, Latin America, and the Middle East. From this broad perspective, our students are trained to think critically about how human societies change over time and how people both in the past and in our own day have tried to make sense of that change.

This position will design and teach upper-division lecture courses in Colonial and Revolutionary U.S. history; advanced colloquia/seminars on topics of particular interest; and lower-division survey courses in U.S. history before the Civil War. Student advising and participation in departmental and university decision-making activities are also expected.
