The Asian Studies Program at Bowling Green State University invites applications to join the pool of adjunct instructors available to teach undergraduate courses in Asian Studies. Courses that may be available in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 include the following:
Asian Studies 1800 (Asian Civilizations)
Fall, Spring. This is a core course for all Asian Studies majors and minors. Provides general knowledge of Asia relative to historical, cultural, social, economic, and political developments of selected countries in East, South, or Southeast Asia. Credit allowed for only one of ASIA 1800, HIST 1800.
Asian Studies 2000 (Introduction to Asian Religions)
Fall or Spring. This course provides an introduction to Asian Religions. It looks at some of the sacred texts, philosophies, and practices of religions either started in South, East, or Southeast Asia or practiced by large numbers of people there, including Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism, Sikhism, Jainism, Taoism, and Confucianism. Students will leave the class with a sense of the diversity of "Asia" as well as an understanding that religions are not monolithic, but open to interpretation both by practitioners and by artists - musicians, dancers, painters, and writers.
A master's degree in philosophy, religion, history, political science, or Asian studies is preferred.
A bachelor's degree in a related field and current enrollment in a master’s program may be considered, to be judged by the program with approval of the Dean required. A background check will be required. Electronically submit a letter of eligibility and interest, resume and two letters of recommendation to Amy Davidson at email@example.com. For questions call (419) 372-6525. If a course is available, candidates will be required to submit original letters of recommendation and official transcripts.
