This is an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to make a contribution to the Departments work on decolonising the curriculum. We invite applications from candidates with teaching and research expertise in Modern History post-1700, with a geographical focus beyond the UK and Europe.  You will play a key role in promoting non-European perspectives, sources and approaches in our existing and future history teaching and will complement and broaden our global coverage of the histories of class, gender, generations, communities, conflict and consumption.
