Arts and Cultures
NYU Liberal Studies
Liberal Studies at New York University is seeking part-time instructors to teach courses in the Arts and Cultures curricular sequence for Spring 2022.
The Liberal Studies Core is a dynamic liberal arts curriculum that provides a global and interdisciplinary foundation for nearly 100 NYU majors. The Global Liberal Studies Bachelor of Arts is an innovative global studies major grounded in the spatial, conceptual, and temporal understandings of a highly interconnected world, with a program of study that is distinguished by experiential learning, study away, and independent research focused in an interdisciplinary concentration. In both the LS Core and the GLS Major, small, seminar-style classes and close faculty-student interaction ensure the benefits of a liberal arts college within a large urban research university. We are especially interested in hiring qualified candidates who can contribute through their research, teaching and service to the diversity and excellence of the Liberal Studies community.
Qualifications: A Ph.D. in Comparative Literature, English, Foreign Language Literatures, Art History with literature teaching experience, or Anthropology with arts focus is strongly preferred, and at least one year of college-level teaching experience. Senior doctoral students (ABD) with teaching experience will be considered. We are especially interested in qualified candidates who share Liberal Studies' commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and who can contribute to the diversity of intellectual life in LS and NYU. Candidates must present demonstrated experience and commitment to interdisciplinarity, intersectionality, and a teaching approach informed by global perspectives. Candidates should have the ability to teach the arts produced across the globe in a variety of artistic media.
Application Instructions: Applications must be submitted through Interfolio and include ONLY (1) a cover letter; (2) a current C.V.; and (3) a Diversity and Inclusion Statement addressing past and/or potential future contributions to diversity through teaching, professional activity, and/or service (additional information can be found here http://as.nyu.edu/departments/facultydiversity/recruitment/diversity-statements.html).
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Interviews to commence as soon as possible.

Liberal Studies sees diversity, equity and inclusion and belonging as essential to education and the development of leadership in a globally interconnected world. These values inform LS as a collegial and respectful environment for students, faculty and staff-with particular attention to improving the student experience. Liberal Studies strongly encourages applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, ability, gender and sexual identity, or any other legally protected basis.
