PURPOSE:

The Department of Art and Art History at Santa Clara University, a Jesuit, Catholic university, invites applications for an Academic Year Adjunct Lecturer (one-year, non-tenure-track) in the Art History. Specific assignments will be made according to the academic qualifications of the individual and programmatic need. The successful candidate will teach the equivalent of six courses, with at least one course in each quarter, fall, winter and spring. Each quarter is 10 weeks long, with an 11th week set for final examinations. This position starts September 1, 2021 and ends in mid-June, but the salary will be paid out over 12 months, from September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2022. The successful applicant may have to teach online or in a hybrid format, yet to be determined. NOTE: if teaching remotely, SCU can employ residents of WA, OR, CA, AZ, NV, and IL only.

The successful candidate will teach three sequences (1-3-2 load distribution) for our innovative Cultures and Ideas I and II series. The Culture and Ideas course sequence must approach the history of visual culture from a global perspective (including both Western and non-Western components) and span a chronological sequence of at least 200 years. Art historians of any specialty may propose Cultures and Ideas I-II course sequences as long as they include Western and non-Western components integrated into each half of the sequence. You may choose to use a pre-approved syllabus for the Cultures and Ideas sequence or develop your own sequence in conjunction with departmental expectations (Please note: new courses are submitted to a rigorous approval process through a college faculty committee and must be completed by July 7, 2021. For details, see https://www.scu.edu/provost/core/faculty-core-resources/

Examples of pre-approved Art History courses that satisfy core Cultures and Ideas I-II requirements include: Art of the Silk Road; Art, Power, and Propaganda; Art of Contact: New Worlds; Mediterranean Encounters; Trading Places: Art, Trade, and Cultural Exchange; and Exhibiting the Global.

The Fall and Winter schedules for this position requires teaching one C&I section on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:15am-10:20am. The Winter/Spring C&I sequence is scheduled for Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1:00pm-2:05pm and 2:15pm-3:20pm. Due to scheduling requirements for Cultures & Ideas sections (which must be taught on the same days at the same times for two quarters in a row), there is very little flexibility in the teaching schedule once finalized by the department chair and the College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Office.
