Description

The UCLA Honors Program unit seeks a temporary lecturer for Fall 2019 (AY 2019-20) to team-teach an upper division undergraduate seminar under Honors Collegium.

The Honors Collegium 138 course is designed for students in the College Honors program. Students explore the theoretical evolution of postcolonial and transnational studies through predominantly American multiethnic short story. Students will contemplate questions, such as “How do our primary works in contemporary short fiction question literary conventions of allegedly mainstream, white Euro-American literature? What meditations on identity do our fiction and creative non-fiction works offer as they intersect notions of race, class, caste, gender, ethnicity, nationality, and/or sexuality? What aesthetic or critical possibilities does the short story open up for future of postcolonial, diaspora, ethnic, and area studies?” Students will also compare short stories.

UCLA has a diverse student population in one of the more diverse cities in the nation; we particularly seek candidates who have taught similarly diverse students in a major research university.

Required Qualifications:

  • An earned post-graduate degree from an accredited university
  • College-level teaching experience
  • Knowledge and training within the fields of English, Comparative Literature, Ethnic Studies, and/or related fields
  • Some knowledge and/or training with the field of Oceanic Studies
  • Experience in teaching writing and composition

    Preferred Qualifications:
  • Previous experience with UCLA Honors Program
  • At least three years of college-level teaching experience
  • Distinguished program of research
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Must be capable of delivering high-quality instruction to a diverse student body
