part-time teaching - Middle East Studies

Part-time Teaching Opportunities
Centre for Global Studies, Huron University College
London, Ontario
CGS 2340F & CGS 2341G

Applications are invited for a part-time position or positions to
teach the following two courses in the Centre for Global Studies in
the 2010/11 academic year:

- CGS 2340F - Mapping the Middle East (Fall Term, Thursdays,
6:00 - 9:00pm.)
- CGS 2341G - Perceptions of the Middle East (Winter Term,
Thursdays, 6:00 - 9:00pm.)

Both are one-term courses with expected enrollments of 45 students.
CGS 2340F studies a series of mapping techniques: of the Ottoman and
Persian Empires; of the economic concessions (from 1550); the
dislocation of culture and religion; and the legacy of this history
from the Treaty of Versailles (1919) to the present day. CGS 2341G
helps students understand the constructions that continue to prevail
in the region by studying imperialism, Orientalism, nationalism,
globalization, and religion. Given the pedagogical outlook of the
Centre for Global Studies, it is expected that these courses be taught
from critical and interdisciplinary approaches.
Anyone wishing to apply to teach one or both of these courses
should submit a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, a
description of how she or he would approach the teaching of one or
both courses, and the names and contact information for three
referees. Review of applications will begin June 15th, 2010.
Applications should be submitted (peferably by email) to:

Dr. Mark F. N. Franke, Director
Centre for Global Studies
Huron University College
1349 Western Road
London, Ontario
N6G 1H3
