Temple University - core humanities program said...

The Intellectual Heritage Program in the College of Liberal Arts at Temple University seeks candidates with relevant terminal academic degrees for two non-tenure-track, full-time instructional appointments for the 2013/2014 academic year, with the possibility for future contract renewal depending on performance, enrollment, and budgetary matters. The teaching load for each will be four sections per semester, with class sizes expected to be fewer than 30 students per section. The Program anticipates that one of the appointments will be entirely devoted to online teaching.

Intellectual Heritage provides instruction for a foundational two-course sequence that is a crucial humanities component of Temple’s General Education curriculum required of all undergraduate students. The courses are thematically based. The first course, “Mosaic: Humanities Seminar I,” covers the following themes: Journeys, Self & Other, Community, and Ways of Knowing. The second course, “Mosaic: Humanities Seminar II,” treats the themes Science, Power, Money, and Environment/City. The emphasis of the two courses is on the development of students’ critical thinking and analytical skills. Through close readings of important books (e.g., Bhagavad Gita, The Souls of Black Folk, Utopia), class discussions, and writing, students develop a synthesized understanding of not only core texts and themes, but also cognitive and communication methods.

Applications are due by April 15, 2013 and should include a cover letter stating interest and qualifications, a CV, a list of three professional references, and, if applicable, evidence of online teaching ability (please do not send additional materials unless requested). Interested parties should submit these materials to Professor Terry Rey, Director of the Intellectual Heritage Program (trey@temple.edu), who may also be contacted for further information about the position.
