The UCLA César E. Chávez Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies invites applications for part-time lecturers to teach interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate courses in Chicana and Chicano Studies during the 2018-19 academic year. The department is seeking candidates who specialize in traditional disciplinary areas such as history, law, public policy, geography, literature and linguistics, as well as interdisciplinary realms such as cultural studies, ethnic studies, urban studies, indigeneity and intersectionality, and the expressive and visual arts. As the fastest growing department in the Division of Social Sciences at UCLA, Chicana and Chicano Studies reflects not just the growth of UCLA’s Chicano/Latino student body, but also more seismic demographic changes, in Los Angeles, California, and the nation. The department of Chicana and Chicano Studies strives to fortify the connection between UCLA and its surrounding urban context and chosen lecturer candidates will assist in these efforts with their ability to integrate their overlapping commitments to academic success, teaching excellence, and equity, diversity, and inclusion.
