New York University (NYU) Berlin is seeking a part-time lecturer to teach a course on Berlin’s modern history in the Spring 2023 semester. This interdisciplinary class should provide a survey of the city’s modern history in terms of social, cultural and political developments, while simultaneously examining how these have contributed to changes at the national, supranational and international levels. Readings and lectures will be supplemented with walking tours of Berlin and its museums, to look at traces of historical, social and cultural change in situ. The lens of critical race theory is critical to this course.
The course is taught in English and meets once per week for 3 hours. The Spring term runs from January 25 to May 15, 2023, with a week-long break from March 13-19.
Candidates should have a track record of academic publications in the field and be passionate about teaching a very diverse cohort of undergraduate students. As the course is open to students from any major, the course content and pedagogy should ensure accessibility for a variety of students. NYU is committed to providing a campus community that reflects and enacts the values of inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity, which inform academic excellence. The lecturer is expected to support and promote this commitment both in and outside of the classroom.
NYU Berlin offers you:
1. An inspiring and rewarding teaching position in an innovative university setting with opportunities to co-design and co-shape our processes.
2. Opportunities for personal and professional development, including access to NYU's Global Faculty Fund, participation in NYU Berlin's IDBEA (Identity, Diversity, Belonging, Equity, Accessibility) Council, as well as training in topics such as, for example, anti-racist teaching and syllabus design.

A remuneration of approximately 5,500 € is available based on experience.
