The Division of Arts and Humanities at Babson College invites applicants for a full-time Lecturer (non-tenure-track) position in Writing. The successful candidate will teach primarily in the Writing Program--our foundational, two-course writing sequence--with occasional opportunities to teach intermediate and advanced courses and/or a first-year interdisciplinary course called Foundations of Critical Inquiry. We seek applicants with significant pedagogical experience as well as scholarly and/or other professional experience related to the teaching of writing. Secondary interests might include, but are not limited to, multi-ethnic literatures of the United States, multicultural rhetorics, global literature, or related disciplines. We seek candidates who can provide evidence of teaching effectiveness and are committed to anti-racist pedagogy and DEI principles. The teaching load for this position is 3/3.
Courses in the Arts and Humanities Division at Babson explore how literary, philosophical, visual, and other modes of artistic expression help to create cultures, imagine communities, and explore the human condition. We challenge our students to cultivate ethical structures for interrogating the world, understanding choices, and making decisions. Through the study of formal, aesthetic concerns, students also explore how the arts inspire joy while educating and enriching us. Our faculty represents a range of disciplines, including creative writing, ethnomusicology, film studies, literature, philosophy, theatre, and studio art.
As a member of the faculty, the ideal candidate will exhibit a desire to engage with the Babson community to provide both divisional and college-wide service.
