Florida State University London seeks an instructor to teach an undergraduate course entitled “London Stage” at its London campus for Fall 2022. Classes run from Monday, September 12, 2022, to Thursday, December 8, 2022.
The London Stage, based on plays currently in production in London will be one course within a London study away semester program for Oberlin College students (Fall 2022 London Program | Oberlin College and Conservatory). The course will study roughly one play per week in the classroom and in performance and is designed to expose students to contemporary London theatre in all its varieties.
Plays ranging from classical to contemporary, and venues including subsidized, commercial, and fringe theatres, should be included as integral elements of the course. Pedagogy should be engaging, innovative, rigorous, and discussion-based with faculty attending performances with students. Funding for guest speakers is available.
The relevant academic department in the US establishes the framework of the syllabus for this course but the instructor has latitude in designing the syllabus and delivering the topics and competencies. In creating their courses, we encourage instructors to make full use of London’s resources by taking students out into the city during class time to visit academically relevant exhibits and institutions.
Classes meet twice a week in a 1.5-hour block on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Class size will likely be between 12 and 14 students. The position is based in Central London at our Bloomsbury campus. The remuneration will be £6,000 for class sessions and associated preparation, grading, faculty meetings, and student engagement.
The ideal candidate will have a PhD, or other appropriate terminal degree in a relevant discipline such as English, Theatre Studies or Practice, English Literature, Performance Arts, Dramaturgy, Playwriting or similar. Previous teaching experience, particularly with US study abroad students, is desirable. All applicants must have the Right to Work in the U.K. If you are not a UK citizen, please address your right to work in your covering letter.
To apply for the position, please send a CV and covering letter to Dr Kathleen Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org FSU London reserves the right to review applications and hold interviews on a rolling basis.
