Temple University, Intellectual Heritage Program
Non-tenure-track, Full-time Instructional Appointment
|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||Pennsylvania, United States|
|Position:||Non-Tenure Track Faculty|
The Intellectual Heritage Program in the College of Liberal Arts at Temple University seeks candidates with relevant terminal academic degrees for a non-tenure-track, full-time instructional appointment for the spring semester of 2013, with the possibility for contract renewal for the 2013/2014 academic year. The teaching load will be four sections for spring 2013, with class sizes expected to be under 30 students per section.
Intellectual Heritage, a foundational two-course sequence, is a crucial component of Temple’s General Education curriculum for 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 January 2, 2013 and should include a cover letter stating interest and qualifications and a CV, along with a list of three professional references (please do not send additional materials unless requested) to: Search Committee, Intellectual Heritage Program, 214 Anderson Hall, 1114 West Pollett Walk, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA 19122-6090, or via email to Professor Terry Rey, Director of the Intellectual Heritage Program (firstname.lastname@example.org), who may also be contacted for further information about the position.
