The Department of African and African American Studies at Brandeis University seeks an instructor for the AAAS 133b Literature of the Caribbean 4-credit course in Spring 2023.

This course is an exploration of the narrative strategies and themes of writers in the region who grapple with issues of colonialism, class, race, ethnicity, and gender in a context of often conflicting allegiances to North and South America, Europe, African and Asia.  This course is traditionally cross-listed in the English Department and attracts students from a variety of backgrounds.

The class will meet in person, day or evening times could be available.

Candidates with a PhD or who are ABD, and who have teaching experience in African and African American Studies will be given preference.  Interested individuals should submit a cover letter that includes how you propose to approach the course.  Please also provide a CV and names and contact information for two references.  Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

This appointment is to a position that is in a collective bargaining unit represented by SEIU Local 509.
