Evergreen State College, Faculty Hiring
Spanish Language and Latin American Literature
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Washington, United States|
|Position:||Tenure Track Faculty|
This is a full time faculty position starting in the 2013/14 academic year.
The Evergreen State College seeks a faculty member broadly trained in contemporary Latin American literature, with specialization in Mexico and Central America. We seek candidates who are interested in team teaching with colleagues in thematically-based interdisciplinary studies programs, often with complementary emphasis on Spain and Latin America. Candidates must demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching at all levels.
Applicants should be able to teach literature in its historical and social contexts and must be prepared to teach Spanish language at all levels. Desirable secondary areas of expertise include one or more of the following: Chicano/a and Latino/a Studies, history, film studies, feminist and gender studies, and community-based learning.
Evergreen organizes its curriculum through interdisciplinary studies (rather than through departments and courses), so the ideal candidate would show the potential for working across disciplines with faculty colleagues. At Evergreen, faculty on teaching teams work closely with students and enjoy a high degree of freedom to determine the subject matter, pace, emphasis, classroom strategies and modes of evaluation. Qualified applicants will teach in their area of expertise, and collaborate across disciplines to connect theory with practice. In addition to teaching, faculty are expected to advise and mentor students and participate in Evergreen’s system of shared governance. Through their participation in shared governance, faculty play a significant role in most aspects of how the college is run.
