The Willamette University English Department invites applications for a tenure-track position specializing in Latina/o Literature. Ideal candidates will have the Ph.D. with publications and a strong commitment to teaching. Desirable sub-fields include other American Ethnic literatures, transnational literature, film, or creative writing.
A typical teaching load would include two sections per year of a general education course taught in the specialty (e.g., ENGL 116W or 118W) or in the department’s foundations program (ENGL 201 and 202W), two sections per year of 300 and 400 level courses for the major, and either a writing course (ENGL 135W, 137W, or 242W) or a first-year seminar (IDS 101). Several courses in this rotation are likely to contribute to Willamette’s American Ethnic Studies program.
