Part-time Lecturer in Politics

New York University: NYU - Global: NYU Berlin

Location : Berlin, Germany

Open Date : May 02, 2022


Deadline
Jun 07, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time
Description

New York University (NYU) Berlin is seeking a part-time lecturer to teach an undergraduate course on contemporary international politics in the Fall 2022 semester.

While we are open to suggestions for topics in contemporary international politics and international relations, we envisage the course to be on one (or a combination) of the following topics:

  • Globalization and the rise of ethno-nationalism in Europe and across the globe: Trade and redistribution, identity and status, the rise of China, and inequality, etc., all as potential sources of changes in the political landscape.

  • Challenges to liberal democracy: Democratic consolidation and reversal, regime stability, protest and collapse, political and economic inequality.

  • Political economy of the European Union: Theory of European integration (intergovernmentalism and functionalism, integration and disintegration), the history of the EU project (Treaty of Rome, the Single European Act, Maastricht etc.), current issues (refugees, immigration, monetary and fiscal integration, harmonization etc.).

  • Emerging security challenges in Europe: response to aggression in Ukraine and the threat it poses to NATO and the European Union, security cooperation within Europe and between Europe and the United States, the expansion of NATO to current European non-members.

The course is taught in English, meets once per week for 3 hours, and the sessions are a mixture of lecture, seminar, and possibly field trips and/or joint discussions with students from local universities. The Fall term runs approximately from September 1 to December 19, 2022.

Candidates should be fluent in English, have a track record of academic publications in the field and be passionate about teaching a very diverse cohort of undergraduate students. As the course is open to students from any major, the course content and pedagogy should ensure accessibility for a variety of students. NYU is committed to providing a campus community that reflects and enacts the values of inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity, which inform academic excellence. The lecturer is expected to support and promote this commitment both in and outside of the classroom.

NYU Berlin offers:

  • An inspiring and rewarding teaching position in an innovative university setting with opportunities to co-design and co-shape our processes.

  • Opportunities for personal and professional development, including access to NYU's Global Faculty Fund, participation in NYU Berlin's DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Council, as well as training in topics such as anti-racist teaching and syllabus design.

  • A diverse, engaged and welcoming team.
