The teaching load is 2-2 with courses cross-listed between Asian Studies and the relevant department.
Asian Studies at TulaneQualifications:
Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary program which draws faculty from across the School of Liberal Arts. The School offers a generous sabbatical policy and support for research and professional travel and a commitment to a global, liberal arts education. Our faculty enjoys a collegial environment, flexibility in course offerings, accomplished and engaged students, and small class sizes. We offer strong language programs in Chinese and Japanese.
Candidates should have working knowledge of at least one Asian language. They should also demonstrate a record of or potential for significant scholarly productivity and evidence of excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching. A PhD in East Asian Languages and Civilizations, Art History, Comparative Literature, English, Communication or other allied disciplines is preferred.
We value diversity and inclusion. Members of traditionally underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Application Instructions:
For priority consideration materials must be received by October 15, 2021. Applicants should submit a detailed letter of interest, a C.V., a writing sample, a teaching statement (and syllabi, if available), a diversity statement, and three letters of reference.
