Subject: Job Announcement
My college is advertising a tenure-line position for someone whose primary expertise is Shakespeare. I’m sharing the main portion of the job description below, and will only add that we’re a department who enjoy and respect each other, have lively discussions of pedagogy, share our scholarly work in progress, and teach relatively bright earnest students.
Here’s the position (also accessible through the dean’s office portion of the college website: http://www.luther.edu/academics/dean/openings/):
QUALIFICATIONS: Ph.D. by September 1, 2013. Specialization in Shakespeare, with secondary strengths in one or more of the following: writing, drama/theater, other British literature, secondary education. The ability to teach a first-year interdisciplinary course in reading, writing and critical thinking is also required. The successful candidate should demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence in a private liberal arts setting and to maintaining an active scholarly agenda.
RESPONSIBILITIES: Teaching responsibilities will include courses on Shakespeare, early modern literature, other courses depending on the secondary strengths, and one section each semester of Paideia I (the college’s two-semester required common, writing-intensive introduction to the liberal arts).
