Diversity and Social Justice Studies - Faculty of Arts
Sessional Instructor
Winter 2017

The Diversity and Social Justice Studies program invites applications from qualified sessional instructors to teach the following courses in the Winter Semester 2017. This course is subject to budgetary approval. Members of the Sessional Roster of the academic unit will be given priority.

DSJS 209: “Selected Topics in DSJS” (two courses required)

Topics are open, but courses should reflect main aims of DSJS: to critically explore the social construction and perpetuation of identity categories (e.g., gender, race, sexuality, disability, class, national identity and status) and the differences these make to systems of knowledge and/or social institutions. Course topics should identify and explore social inequities and responses to those from a variety of theoretical perspectives.
209 courses typically focus on a particular topic with wide appeal; there are no prerequisites to this course, and students come from across the campus community. Courses that can potentially be cross listed with other programs or departments are welcome. See for more information about DSJS.

Application Instructions:

Applicants should email curriculum vitae, proposed course topic, tentative outline and the names of three referees to:
