Candidates should submit a letter of application, c.v., a writing sample of no more than forty pages, and three letters of reference online by October 17, 2014 at AcademicJobsOnline:  Brandeis is an equal opportunity employer committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community and strongly encourages applications from women and members of historically underrepresented groups.  Questions about the search may be addressed to Dona DeLorenzo,

Mellon Foundation to Fund a Revolutionary seminar The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a $175,000 grant to Brandeis University to organize a year-long seminar that will bring together faculty and graduate students from Brandeis and other schools in the Boston area to consider the entangled histories and enduring effects of the American (1776-1783), French (1789-1799) and Haitian (1791-1804) revolutions.  The seminar was conceived and will be led by two members of the Brandeis faculty, Jane Kamensky, the Harry S. Truman Professor of American Civilization, and Susan S. Lanser, Professor of Comparative Literature, English, and Women's and Gender Studies.
