Chicana/o & Central American Studies Department Seeking Lecturer Focusing on Literary Production
The UCLA César E. Chávez Department of Chicana/o and Central American Studies invites applications for part-time lecturers to teach interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate courses in Chicana and Chicano Studies during the 2021-22 academic year.
The department is seeking a candidate who specializes in narrative literary production of U.S. Chicana writers and their Latin American counterparts in English and Spanish, with particular focus on how each group deals with gender, ethnic, class issues, philosophical, cultural, and social thought as well as intellectual traditions in the Americas.
As the fastest growing department in the Division of Social Sciences at UCLA, Chicana and Chicano Studies reflects not just the growth of UCLA’s Chicano/Latino student body, but also more seismic demographic changes, in Los Angeles, California, and the nation. The department of Chicana and Chicano Studies strives to fortify the connection between UCLA and its surrounding urban context and chosen lecturer candidates will assist in these efforts with their ability to integrate their overlapping commitments to academic success, teaching excellence, and equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent expertise in their field of specialization and have at least one year’s teaching experience at the college level. All applicants must complete an UC Recruit online application including submission of a current Curriculum Vitae, Statement of Teaching, Statement of Contributions to Diversity, proposed course syllabi, and the names and contact information of three references.
