History and Environmental Studies Faculty Term Position for 2013-14
The history and environmental studies departments at St. Olaf College seek colleagues with pertinent expertise to teach four courses, three of which focus on U.S. History and the other in the broad area of environmental humanities. Depending on qualifications and interests the departments have the ability to construct positions that range between single course appointments to a four course appointment. Specific courses to be covered include:
January term (06 – 31 Jan 2014)
- U.S. History course, suitable for a general education history population
Spring Semester (10 Feb – 21 May 2014)
- America since 1865 course or topical seminar course for first year students
- U.S. Environmental History survey course
- Environmental Humanities topics course at intermediate level
One of the spring history courses could be either a section of America since 1865 or a topical, primary-source based seminar for first year students of the instructor’s own design. The environmental studies humanities level II topics course is open to thematic organization consistent with the individual's professional expertise and complementary to the arts and humanities offerings within the environmental studies department. For example, the instructor may wish to focus on the historical, aesthetic, literary, religious, or philosophical aspects of the environment.
Candidates should show potential for excellence in teaching, interest in the undergraduate liberal arts setting, and engagement in interdisciplinary activities. Prior experience with undergraduates in research or in other professional settings is desired.
