The Department of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages (LCL) at the University of Connecticut seeks to hire a Visiting Assistant Professor in Spanish Studies. The successful candidate will be fluent in Spanish and English and will be expected to teach advanced courses in both languages. We are looking for someone able to field courses in film, literary, and cultural studies in the Peninsular, Latin American, and Latinx worlds. This is a nine-month, non-tenure track appointment with a teaching load of seven courses per academic year. 

This is a full-time, 9-month, non-tenure track position with an anticipated start date of August 23, 2023. The successful candidate’s primary academic appointment will be at the Storrs campus.

Literatures, Cultures, and Languages is a vital department of more than 40 professors who serve our core mission — reaching out with languages, cultures, and literatures to achieve a deeper engagement with the world. This is an exciting time for LCL. In the last few years, we have added major and minor programs in Chinese, Arabic, and Islamic Studies to our long-standing programs in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies, French, German, Italian, Hebrew and Judaic Studies, and Spanish Studies. Additional languages taught in LCL include Persian, Irish, Korean, Modern Greek, Japanese, Portuguese, and American Sign Language. We are developing an across-the-humanities translation project aimed at producing publishable translations in collaboration with the Departments of Philosophy and History. LCL also offers forward-looking dual-degree programs in professional fields that provide opportunities for academic study and prestigious internships in different parts of the world. Our MA and Ph.D. programs support more than 50 full-time graduate students and teaching assistants and offer concentrations in Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies (which includes Chinese), French and Francophone Studies, German Studies, Hebrew and Judaic Studies, Italian Literary and Cultural Studies, Spanish Studies, and Applied Linguistics and Discourse Studies. Our department is deeply committed to the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, and we work together to build a community that supports all of its members.
