Academic, Employment: Course Instructor – USA402H1S: American Serialized Media

The program in American Studies is seeking one course instructor for the Spring 2016 semester, for USA402H1S: American Serialized Media.

Description:
USA402H1S: American Serialized Media
This course will survey the history of serial practice in American media, from the mammoth success of the silent-era serial queen melodramas, to the solidification of the film serial form as a children’s genre in the 1930s and 40s and the arrival of television, to the more recent revival of serialized narratives in transmedia franchising and cable television. As one of Hollywood’s dominant economic and narratological practices, the study of the serial form allows for a sustained discussion of film’s intermedial relationship to radio, comic strips, and television, film form and narrative, independent and studio-based production and exhibition, and the social experience of movie-going. In addition to structuring these questions around selected texts from a century of serial filmmaking, the course will offer students the opportunity to engage with a sustained serial text (a 12-part film serial, likely from the 1930s or 40s) on a weekly basis over the course of the semester, in order to more completely understand the displacement of attentive viewership onto the practice of weekly intermedial consumption.

Description of Duties:
Duties include the design of a university credit course, including preparation and delivery of course content; development, administration, and marking of assignments, tests, and exams, calculation and submission of grades (including any grading or submission of grades not completed by April 30, 2016); holding regular office hours.

Estimate of TA Support: N/A

Timetable: Wednesdays, 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Dates of appointment: January 1, 2016 – April 30, 2016

Qualifications:
A PhD candidate in Cinema Studies, History, English literature, Political Science, Aboriginal studies, Anthropology, Art history/Visual Culture studies, Ethnic studies, Geography, Women and Gender studies, Religion, Media studies, Communications, Music, Sexuality studies, or other similar areas with a focus on the interdisciplinary approach to United States history, politics, and culture. Applicants should be PhD candidates in the relevant subject area and be interdisciplinary in approach. Demonstrated excellence in teaching, and previous teaching experience, are both highly desirable. Final availability of the position is contingent upon enrolment, budgetary consideration and the determination of appointments as governed by the collective agreement.

Application Process:

The program in American Studies is seeking one course instructor for the Fall 2015 semester, for USA401H1F: Creating the Just City.

Description:
USA 410H1F: Creating the Just City
This seminar focuses on the city as a centre of political struggle in the U.S. In recent years especially, from Occupy to ongoing protests against police violence, American cities have been the hub of social movements.

In this seminar, we will start by asking, “Who has a ‘right to the city’?” In other words: Who has the right to shape the city? Who does the city belong to? How have social movements forced changes to American cities over the 20th century to today? What becomes a subject of struggle and protest? Why is the city something to protest over? What does a socially just city look like?

The program in American Studies is seeking one sessional lecturer for the Spring 2016 semester, to teach USA 310H1S: American Political Development.

Description:
USA310H1S: American Political Development
American political development (APD) is where American history meets political science. APD — as a subfield in the study of U.S. politics — is chiefly concerned with explaining the growth and development of major political institutions and public policies over time. The course will proceed in two phases. In part one, we will undertake a brief survey of the constitution, major institutions, and political history of the United States in order to equip us with the essential contextual knowledge for what follows. In part two, we will explore the methodological approaches, debates, and themes that animate APD — such as the causal role of political culture, ideas, race, and the economy. Specific topics will include: Congress, the presidency, the bureaucracy, federalism, political parties and party system realignment, and social policymaking. Throughout the course, present-day U.S. politics will never be far from view as we seek to better understand current political phenomena (and problems) through a long historical lens.
