The Faculty comprises seven Schools, two research Institutes, two museums, a Centre for Policy Futures, and several school-based research centres.

About This Opportunity
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences seeks a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer to engage in undergraduate teaching in the Western Civilisation major, focusing on the influence of Women’s Writing.
The Western Civilisation major is an interdisciplinary sequence of courses developed by academic staff at The University of Queensland. Taught in small seminars of approximately 10 students, these courses follow a ‘great books’ format and are designed to encourage close reading and critical reflection. As part of the Western Civilisation faculty, you will join an enthusiastic, collaborative teaching team that prioritises student experience and intellectual rigour. Teaching in this major will bring you into contact with some of the brightest and most engaged students that The University of Queensland has to offer.
Through an examination of key texts (literary, historical, visual, musical), proposed courses consider the influence of women’s writing and how writing by women, for women, and about women is integral to our understanding of Western culture and its future .
