Teaching Opportunities

Graduate Lectureships & BA Preceptorship

CSRPC Graduate Lectureships 2018-19 -- Deadline 2/26/18
Description: The College and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture are calling for applications by advanced graduate students to teach one undergraduate course of their own design on topics related to race and ethnic studies. Courses in any related topic or thematic may be proposed. The Center is especially interested in courses that posit race and processes of racialization in comparative and transnational frameworks; highlight the intersection of race and ethnicity with other identities (gender, class, sexuality and nationality); and/or interrogate social and identity cleavages within racialized communities.

Eligibility: Advanced graduate students (Ph.D. candidates with at least one chapter of the dissertation written) in any discipline at the University of Chicago are encouraged to apply. The stipend is $5,000/6000 (depending on graduate student status) and is available for one quarter only. Up to six Graduate Lectureships will be awarded. Students applying to teach in other departments may not teach the same course for CSRPC during that academic year.
