WSN'ers:

The University of Tennessee (Knoxville) is seeking to hire a sociological 
theorist at the _Associate Professor_ level (formal announcement posted 
below).

Faculty in the department have recently decided to reorganize both the 
undergraduate and graduate programs around the theme of "social justice," 
since for almost all of us, a scholarly interest in and a normative commitment 
to social justice informs our teaching and research. Consequently, the 
department is especially keen on hiring someone who is able to integrate a 
scientific and, dare I say, a political concern with social justice into both 
their teaching of theory and their formulation of theory. In other words, 
neo-Marxist theorists, critical race theorists, feminist theorists, queer 
theorists, world-systems theorists and so on and so forth who _specialize in 
theory_ are heartily encouraged to apply.

If you know of anyone who might be eligible for and interested in this 
position, please have them contact Suzanne Kurth at skurth@utk.edu.
