The UCLA Honors Program unit seeks a lecturer for Fall 2021 (AY 2021-22) to teach an undergraduate seminar under Honors Collegium.

The Honors Collegium 138 course is designed for students in the College Honors program. Students explore the evolution of postcolonial studies through contemporary works of multiethnic American literature.
