The fellow will be responsible for teaching a three/two course load for the academic year, which will include both lower and upper-division undergraduate courses. Additionally, there might exist the opportunity to teach a graduate course during the second year. Course topics will include Chicanx and Latinx literature and culture, introduction to Hispanic literature, intermediate Spanish, composition, and possibly leading discussion sections in Core Humanities. In addition, the fellow will serve in various departmental committees as needed. This postdoctoral teaching fellow position is a one-year appointment to begin July 1, 2017 and is eligible for renewal for an additional year (until June 30, 2019).
