Lecturer Job at San Francisco State University, Fall 2015–hiring immediately
WGS 150: Women and Gender in U.S. History and Society
Section 01: Tuesday/Thursday 8:10-09:25 am
Description: Historical development of institutions and ideals and the evolution of economic, political, and social processes in the U.S. since colonization; roles and status of women. (Fulfills the U.S. History component of the U.S. History and Government Requirement).
This is a lower-division, 100-student lecture, general education classes. The instructor must be able to manage a large lecture course (both its logistics and grading workload) and be comfortable communicating complex college-level ideas to a large group of students in their first or second semester of college. The instructor should approach US gender history within constitutive frameworks such as settler colonialism, transnational circuits of enslavement and immigration, and the intersecting politics of gender, race, sexuality, ability, and labor.
In WGS at SFSU, we teach WGS from an interdisciplinary, intersectional and transnational perspective and all WGS courses should be designed to emphasize critical thinking, reading and writing. Ideal candidates will have their PhD or be ABD in either Feminist/Gender/Women’s Studies or with significant WGS experience in an interdisciplinary degree program such as Ethnic Studies, Cultural Studies, American Studies or relevant discipline.
Candidates should send a short cover letter and a C.V. to Deborah Cohler (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible. I will review applications and then conduct interviews immediately, until the positions are filled.
