POSTING DATE: July 27, 2015
APPLICATION DEADLINE: August 17, 2015

PAY RATE: Remuneration is based upon qualifications and experience.

WORK ASSIGNMENT: The Contemporary Studies Programme invites applications from qualified individuals to teach the following courses:

CTMP2121.03 Structuralism and Poststructuralism. Structuralism was one of the major intellectual movements of the 20th century, and its legacy continues. This class will introduce students to the work of structuralist thinkers such as Ferdinand de Saussure, Claude Levi-Strauss, Louis Althusser, and Jacques Lacan. Their work addresses the deep structures of signs, language, political economy, cultural production, and the psyche. Structuralism had some surprising effects, such as the French protests of May 1968, when the “students took to the streets.” We will consider the way poststructuralist thinkers, such as Barthes, Foucault, Deleuze, and Derrida criticize and transform structuralist interpretations of subjectivity, language and the political.

The course is scheduled for Wednesdays, 9:35-11:25 a.m. and Fridays, 10:35-11:25 a.m. during the Winter term.

CTMP3410.03 Community in Crisis: Philosophy, Literature and Film. Community is often proposed in modernity as the solution to politics of division and isolation. Yet the concept of community is itself plagued by paradox and inconsistency, even as it proposes itself as inclusive and harmonious. It is no exaggeration to say that politics today revolves around a re-entrenched notion of ‘the proper,’ that is, around questions of property and capitalist accumulation, competing claims of belonging and membership, and versions of propriety determined by socially or religiously ‘conservative’ resurgences. Against the backdrop of these re-entrenchments, this class will begin by considering the theoretical tradition out of which the link between political community and the proper emerges. Further, we will situate that tradition in relation to the ways in which the issue of community has, with some urgency, re-emerged as a principle theme in contemporary philosophy, literature, and film.

This course is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursday, 4:05-5:25 p.m. during the Fall term.5+

The successful candidates will be responsible for teaching 3 hours of classes per week, evaluating assignments, attending staff meetings, and holding office hours. If eligible, the candidates may be required to supervise a teaching assistant. These positions report to the Director of the Programme.

QUALIFICATIONS
Applicants should possess, as a minimum requirement, a Master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies or a relevant discipline or field of research. Some prior university-level teaching is required.

Applicants must submit a cover letter stating their qualifications for, and interest in, teaching the class, a curriculum vitae, two confidential letters of reference and evidence of teaching effectiveness.

If you are interested, please submit your application and supporting documents in writing no later than August 17th to:
