Clark University has named Esther Jones as its first ever Associate Provost and Dean of the Faculty.

She will be responsible for supporting faculty mentoring, development, and leadership opportunities across all ranks for the liberal arts and sciences departments and programs at the university.

“I am humbled and honored to be the first steward of this position. I believe that Clark is poised for breakthrough in a number of areas that this position can support and facilitate. I’m thrilled to be able to enact a vision and develop models and strategies to further support the high quality of work performed by our faculty; I believe they are the university’s most valuable asset,” said Jones.

Jones began her post on June 1.

About Jones

Jones joined the Clark faculty in 2009 as assistant professor of English and held the E. Franklin Frazier Chair of African American Literature, Theory, and Culture at Clark.  She also served as the inaugural director of Clark’s Africana Studies concentration, a curriculum for students who wish to develop a cultural, historical, political, social and geographical awareness of the ways people of African descent have lived, worked and fought for self-definition. 

She is also affiliated with Clark’s Women’s and Gender Studies program and the Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies concentration.

Jones lectures on American and African Diaspora literature and culture. Her research and publications deal with subjects primarily in the fields of the health humanities and speculative fiction with a focus on race and gender.  She is author of “Medicine and Ethics in Black Women’s Speculative Fiction” (Palgrave Macmillan 2015), a book that examines the constructions of black pathology and bioethics in science fiction by contemporary black women writers, and the editor-in-chief of “Health Humanities in Global Context: Race and Ethnicity around the World.”

Jones earned her bachelor’s degree from Fisk University, and her master’s and doctoral degrees from Ohio State University. She is a resident of Wellesley.
