The course goals include critical thinking and writing skills. The position requires a completed Ph.D. in a humanities discipline including comparative literature, history, philosophy, religious studies, or cultural studies. Applicants with knowledge of Chinese, South Asian, or Islamic literature and culture are especially welcome, but other areas of focus will be considered.
