New York University

Gallatin School of Individualized Study

Gallatin's BA and MA students create integrated, multidisciplinary
programs of study, combining courses in the various schools of NYU with
independent studies, internships, and thematic interdisciplinary seminars,
which bring debates from within the Western Great Books tradition into
dialogue with current and historical scholarship, contemporary problems,
traditional and popular culture, and alternative canons.

We seek an experienced teacher/scholar for a full-time, tenure-track
position beginning Fall 1997. A teacher/master teacher position may also be
available. Candidate's teaching and research should transcend traditional
disciplinary boundaries. Preference will be given to candidates with a
background in one or more of these areas:

* African-American, Latino, Latin American, American, or Asian and Asian
American studies;
* Anthropology, psychology;
* Interactive communications and media studies.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. and a demonstrated commitment to teaching,
intensive student advisement, individualized instruction, and academic
innovation, an ability to develop courses on a wide variety of subjects and
periods, and high quality scholarship.
