Visiting Faculty Position in French

Bennington College



Job Type: | Part time

Location: Bennington, Vermont, United States

Bennington College invites applications for a one-term sabbatical replacement in French, beginning February 19, 2024. We are seeking a faculty member to contribute one or two innovative course offerings in French and Francophone literature and/or culture at the intermediate and/or advanced level. Native or near-native proficiency in French and English, an excellent teaching record, and familiarity with content-based pedagogy in a liberal arts college environment are required. A Ph.D. is preferred; very advanced graduate students will also be considered.

Bennington College is a small residential liberal arts college in southern Vermont, long distinguished for its progressive approach to higher education. The College was founded in 1932 on the principle of active engagement in learning, which is manifest in individualized plans of study developed by students together with faculty. Bennington's open curricular structures facilitate innovative teaching across traditional disciplinary boundaries, and small class sizes enable student-centered and engaged learning within the classroom. Candidates that can demonstrate excellence in teaching are especially encouraged to apply.

Bennington serves a student population inclusive of members of ethnically/racially diverse, international, LGBTQIA+, and disability communities as well as diverse gender identities, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, and political beliefs. Our staff and faculty also reflect diverse and intersecting backgrounds and identities. All employees are expected to be respectful and responsive to these differences in the service of building community that promotes student and employee success. Each individual (faculty, staff and student) will be accountable for upholding these values. The College's approach to pluralism and inclusivity—both as fields of inquiry and practice—is to prioritize flexible thought, and to invite the examination of access, value, power, and privilege through its institutional policies and areas of study. We encourage applications from women and/or candidates from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds and diverse realms of interest and experience to apply.

Candidates should apply online by submitting the following: a) letter of application that describes teaching experience and professional work; b) curriculum vitae; c) detailed descriptive proposal for two courses (one advanced/one intermediate); and d) the names and contact information for three references.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
