The Department of History at Reed College invites applications for two one-year visiting appointments in Late Nineteenth and Twentieth-Century American History.

Information about the ES program is available at http://academic.reed.edu/es. For the second position, we seek someone who can, in addition to upper-division courses in their field of specialization, teach in Humanities 110, a team-taught yearlong interdisciplinary course that focuses on cross-cultural interaction in the ancient Mediterranean world. This course is required of all first-year students and fulfills the College’s freshman writing requirement. Information about HUM 110 is available at http://academic.reed.edu/humanities/Hum110/index.html.
Teaching duties for both positions will also include advising yearlong senior theses in history.
