Post Summary

The School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies at Trinity College Dublin is looking to make an appointment to the Chair of Spanish, tenable from 1 September 2019. Joint Chairs were first appointed in Modern Languages in 1776: Italian with Spanish, and French with German. The first entirely autonomous Chair of Spanish was established in 1926. In the distinguished history of the Chair of Spanish this will be the first appointment of a specialist in Latin American Studies. The College is thus not only reaffirming its commitment to the role of languages in the humanities, but also to the central role of the humanities in realising the academic and societal goals of a 21st century university. The successful candidate will be expected to have and maintain a distinctive global profile of research excellence: previous holders have included eminent scholars who have provided national and international leadership in the discipline.
