The Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGS) seeks an adjunct instructor to teach WGS 222/HGS 210 Nonviolence and Peace Action. This interdisciplinary course also serves as an elective in International Studies, Religious Studies, and Holocaust and Genocide Studies, and all TCNJ students may take it to fulfill requirements in social science and gender. The course offers an introductory overview of key areas of theory and practice in Peace and Justice Studies, with applications from the local community to international relations. Gender as a category of analysis is mainstreamed throughout the course, in keeping with current scholarship and practice in the field. All courses are offered with an intersectional lens.
