Subject: Seeking Adjunct Instructors for Intro Gender Studies Courses


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?    


Thank you,   




Dr. Amy Barber

Professor and Director of Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies

Department of Critical Race, Gender, & Culture Studies
