The UCLA Honors Program unit seeks a lecturer for Spring 2021 (AY 2020-21) to teach an upper division undergraduate lecture under Honors Collegium.

The Honors Collegium 132 course is designed for students in the College Honors program. Students look at the women's movements in U.S. and East Asia in early 20th century and examine how issues of women's rights, labor rights, and race/nation identities united and divided women across classes and national borders. Students will analyze the suffrage movement in 1913 New York and parallel movements in East Asia (Japan, Korea, China) that adopted and adapted some of these same ideas to their own unique historical circumstances.

UCLA has a diverse student population in one of the more diverse cities in the nation; we particularly seek candidates who have taught similarly diverse students in a major research university.

Required Qualifications:
• An earned doctorate from an accredited university
