Job description

Wesleyan University is a private liberal arts university in Connecticut and home to the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life (CSPL). The center is a hub for innovative approaches to the study of public life that cross disciplinary boundaries, including programming about fashion, art, journalism, and public speech. The center supports faculty and student research across the social sciences, humanities, and physical sciences, and complements other campus efforts to deepen public engagement. More information on the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life can be found at https://www.wesleyan.edu/allbritton/cspl/index.html.    Working under the direction of Robyn Autry, Associate Professor of Sociology and Director of the Allbriton CSPL, as well as faculty in related departments and programs, the Teaching Fellow will offer courses on civil disagreement and dialogue, and help facilitate a yearlong civil dialogue workshop for undergraduates. The fellow’s approach to public speech and civil dialogue can be rooted in any number of disciplines including philosophy, ethics, rhetoric and communication religion, political science, and sociology.  We are open to all geographic and topical areas of specialization that present innovative approaches to the study of public dialogue in civil society.    Expectations: The teaching load is 2-1 with courses cross-listed between the CSPL and at least one other department or program. The fellow will work closely with the CSPL to develop course syllabi, build networks across campus, and facilitate civil dialogue trainings with students.   This fellowship begins September 1, 2024 and requires a regular presence on campus in Middletown, CT during the 2024 – 25 academic year.

Compensation: $72,000 – $80,000 depending on qualifications
