School of European Languages, Culture and Society London

Lecturer in Comparative Literature

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 8.

SELCS is a world-leading centre for teaching, research and public engagement, focussing on the literature, linguistic traditions, history, sociology, philosophy, art, film and other aspects of the cultures associated with the languages we teach (Danish, Dutch, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Norwegian, Old Norse, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish). Our taught programmes are innovative and interdisciplinary; academic colleagues and students engage with many urgent concerns facing the world today by understanding languages, cultures and histories in a global context. The post holder will be required to contribute to the BA and MA programmes of Comparative Literatures, and to relevant undergraduate and postgraduate programmes with a transnational focus, including Gender and Sexuality, Film Studies, and Translation Studies, among others. We particularly welcome candidates with a research interest in world literature, decolonization, trans-cultural exchange, disability, ageing, gender and sexuality, race or class.

The post holder will contribute to teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, as well as to the running of the School and the University generally. The successful candidates are expected to take up the position on 1 January 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The post-holder will be fluent in both English and one of the languages taught in SELCS, or Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, or any other language of South-Asian, East-Asian, African and/or Middle-East literatures, and have a proven ability to undertake academic research of high quality in any area of comparative literature.  A PhD or equivalent is essential, as is experience of teaching at a higher educational institution, or at an equivalent level.
