Call for Proposal: Summer 2019 Topics in Asian Languages and Cultures

The Department of Asian Languages and Cultures invites graduate students enrolled in the Ph.D. programs in Chinese, Japanese and LCA to submit proposals of courses to be considered for the offering in Summer 2019.  Any topics on Asian Languages and Cultures can be considered. Recent topics of courses taught by graduate students have include Gender and Modern China, Manga, and Chinese Science-Fiction.

We consider a 4-week course offered either in-person, online, or hybrid/blended settings.

By early October, a faculty committee will review the proposals and identify courses that would attract a sufficient number of undergraduate students (the minimum of 15) and best suit the department’s needs. The committee will provide feedback for all the syllabi submitted so that you can revise them and include them into your portfolio for the future.

The proposal should include the following:

1)    Cover letter, discussing why you think the proposed course fits the department’s needs and why you think you are qualified to teach the course.
2)    Your CV
3)    Course syllabus (please review to make sure you include all the necessary items).

Send your materials to Rachel Weiss as email attachments.

If you have any question regarding this call, contact Naomi Geyer (Chair of Curriculum and Planning Committee) and/or Tyrell Haberkorn (Director of Graduate Studies).

Deadline: 21 September 2018
