The University of Michigan's Department of American Culture seeks qualified
applicants to teach in our Asian/Pacific Islander American Studies Program in
Winter 2022. We are soliciting proposals for a second- or third-year level
class that explores the experiences of Asian, Asian American, and Pacific
Islander communities in the United States.
The mission of the University of Michigan is to serve the people of Michigan
and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and
applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and
citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future.
Because of its home within American Culture, the successful instructor will be
attentive to the department's curricular goalsof helping students understand
these communities in relation to other minority populations in the United
States. The instructor will also give emphasis to the cultural diversity of
groups and experiences identified as Asian and Pacific Islander within the
U.S. Successful proposals will consider how to give students an analytical
tool-kit for identifying and critiquing key questions in Asian American and/or
Pacific Islander American studies.
Proposed course themes may include: migration, stereotypes and popular
culture, Asian Americans in a global perspective, gender ideologies,
imperialism in the Pacific, labor, Asian American literary traditions, socio-
economic issues, criminal justice, state power, and activism.
Readings and assignments should be interdisciplinary across history, media,
and literary studies. The course will be a three-credit hour course with an
anticipated enrollment of 35 students.
The course's schedule time will be decided in terms of both departmental need
and the successful candidate's availability.
Preference will be given towards candidates with MA or PhD in Ethnic Studies,
American Studies or other humanities or social science disciplines with
specialized training/experience specific to the course content.
This position is covered under the collective bargaining agreement between the
