Dear Colleagues at GMU,
I’m writing to let you know that the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
program at American University is seeking adjunct instructors to teach introductory WGSS courses in person in the Fall 2021 semester. The courses are “Gender in Society” (WGSS 125) and “Gender, Politics & Power” (WGSS 225), and the course descriptions can
be found here.
We generally offer several sections of these courses each semester, so a successful launch could
well lead to further teaching opportunities with the WGSS program. ABD’s and completed M.A.’s are encouraged to apply, as well as those candidates who have completed their PhD’s. The WGSS program is the largest of six interdisciplinary programs which make
up the broader department of Critical Race, Gender, and Culture Studies at American University.
If you have any promising graduate students who might be interested, could you please ask them
to email me to introduce themselves and send along a CV?
