The Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of lecturers who may be appointed to teach courses in Critical Race and Ethnic Studies during the regular academic year and/or Summer Session.
We seek professionally active and versatile teachers whose pedagogy is grounded in critical analysis of race and ethnicity and who are conversant with recent trends in ethnic studies. Candidates should be willing to develop syllabi, which engage with racial capitalism and emphasize the intersection of race and ethnicity with categories such as gender, sexuality, class, disability, indigeneity, law, and citizenship. We are open to a range of proposed topics, not limited to courses that incorporate or focus on the following:
- Comparative approaches to the study of race, ethnicity, and indigeneity
- Critical adoption studies
- Critical migration or comparative border studies
- Critical prison studies
- Disability studies
- Histories of decolonizing, anticolonial, race-radical social movements
- War and empire studies
We particularly welcome candidates whose courses are grounded in comparative, interdisciplinary, and/or transnational approaches. Additionally, we are especially interested in applicants with experience in indigenous studies or community organizing.
Lecturers should be willing to teach in both large lecture and smaller seminar class formats. Internal candidates will be given priority consideration.
