    The Humanities Core Program at UC Irvine introduces students to the methods and objectives of humanistic inquiry by example and practice. In lectures, faculty from a wide range of disciplines will exemplify the way humanists approach issues from three general perspectives: philosophical, historical and cultural. Lecturers will use these perspectives to analyze the many different kinds of written texts and visual images in the assigned readings. In small discussion sections, students will practice these perspectives in classroom conversations and debates and in their own writing. These activities are designed to engage students intellectually as they examine the topic of the course throughout the year.

    Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in a humanities discipline. Priority will be given to those with 3+ years of university teaching. Knowledge of Humanities Core and experience teaching composition are also preferred.

    Applicants should submit 1) a letter of interest, 2) a current curriculum vitae, 3) two names and contact information for references, 4) current teaching evaluations, 5) any relevant teaching materials, and 6) Statement of Contributions to Diversity.
