Evergreen State College - 18th century British/Anglophone FictionEdit

The Evergreen State College seeks applicants for a full time, regular faculty position in 18th century British/Anglophone literature with a specialization in fiction. The successful candidate must be committed to teaching literature to beginning and advanced undergraduate students in an interdisciplinary setting. The successful candidate will demonstrate both depth in the historical period and a theoretical field of specialization and enthusiasm for teaching writing and a wide range of literature written in English. Candidates must have college level teaching experience. Additionally, they must be able to speak and write effectively about their own work and that of others, and must be prepared to actively support students to develop critical thinking skills.

Evergreen organizes its curriculum through coordinated interdisciplinary studies (rather than through departments and courses). Team-taught interdisciplinary "programs" occupy students full time, over multiple quarters. Faculty on teaching teams enjoy a high degree of freedom to determine the subject matter, emphases, pace, classroom strategies and modes of evaluation in these programs. In some years, faculty teach students working close to their own discipline at a variety of experience levels; in other years they join faculty from diverse disciplines to develop a theme-based curriculum. In keeping with this teaching and learning model, ideal candidates for this position will demonstrate engagement with one or more disciplines outside of literature relevant to the period. For example, candidates with interests or expertise in the political philosophies of the period or contemporary conceptualizations of nature or space would be well prepared to contribute to thematic teaching teams. We encourage those who have had experience with students from underrepresented populations to apply.

In addition to teaching, faculty are expected to advise and mentor students and participate in Evergreen's system of shared governance. Through their participation in shared governance, faculty play a significant role in most aspects of how the college is run.

Minimum Qualifications: * PhD in British or Anglophone literature or related field by September 1, 2012. * Demonstrated expertise in British or Anglophone 18th century fiction. * College-level teaching experience. * Demonstrated ability to teach literature and writing at the college level. * Demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching in an interdisciplinary context.

Preferred Qualifications: * Experience working with diverse and underrepresented populations. * Experience pursuing innovative and engaging teaching strategies working with faculty from other disciplines.

This is a Regular Faculty position, eligible for continuing appointment after two, three-year renewable contracts. All application materials must be submitted by January 17, 2012 for further consideration.

NOTES:

The job is no longer posted on the college's website: http://www.pitzer.edu/offices/dean_of_faculty/professional_opportunities/index.asp. Has anyone heard if it already closed?

A: This position is still listed as "Open" on this page: http://www.pitzer.edu/facultyapply/ - it seems application materials are to be sent via email to this address: Tenure Track Assistant Professor in English and World Literature: EWL_search@pitzer.edu

OP: Recieved an email saying, "Pitzer College’s English and World Literature faculty search has been postponed indefinitely." I guess that is why the job is not posted on the Pitzer's "Professional Opportunities" page. They should take the email down from the "Apply" page.

It is great that they postpone it; this application is too complicated to put together to begin with. Asking the letter of rec to be sent in a specific way with a specific heading with specific file name is just WAY TOO MUCH. Please reconsider application procedure if you want people to apply for this job.

Thanks for the update on this postion.

Honest question: when they say they want someone to "enhance the diversity" is this shorthand for saying they want a candidate who is not white? Recently a faculty member said something to me along the lines of "our department is very bland, we don't have much diversity."

Honest answer: maybe. But it specifically says they want to "enhance the diversityand global focus of departmental courses so it sounds like they want to offer more courses in literature by minority/non-Western/"third world" writers. Diversity with regard to approaches to literary study.

Has anyone heard from them?! Please, lurkers, post if you have! (12/16)
