Lecturer in Ethics
The School of Humanities invites applications for a Lecturer position in the Interdisciplinary Collaborative Core for a course titled ‘Ethics and Civics in a Multicultural World’ at Nanyang Technological University.
Ethics and Civics in a Multicultural World aims to equip students with the necessary philosophical foundations to understand theories of ethics and subsequently apply those theories to real-life scenarios and issues. It also aims to enable students to understand and critically assess the civic institutions that structure their local and global communities.
Topics include human rights, democracy, freedom of speech, inequality, abortion, as well as many others. The rights and duties of citizenship shall be a unifying theme. Students will think through assumptions they hold on all of these matters. They will be provided with the tools to understand conflicting perspectives on these important issues. There will be a substantial amount of time devoted toward understanding Singapore’s own institutions and ideologies, which are of course products specific to the country’s own unique historical and geo-political circumstances.
