Teaching Fellow: Modern British History (including Gender)

10-month position || 80% FTE

The Department seeks to appoint a Teaching Fellow to cover the following modules during the period 01 September 2018 to 30 June 2019 in the first instance.

  • British History, 1850-1997: This undergraduate module provides an introduction to the political, economic, social and cultural history of Britain between 1850 and 1997.  Britain's position in the world is a key theme of the module, but the module will also trace longer-term developments that cut across the period.   Changes in race, class and gender are, thus, key themes in the module, alongside broader cultural trends such as demographic change, secularisation, the development of mass consumerism, and the decline of deference.
  • Gender and Sexuality in Modern Britain: This graduate module examines the changing representations and lived experiences of gender and sexuality in late nineteenth and twentieth-century Britain.  It focuses upon key events in history when gender conventions were questioned and the gender order thrown into sharp relief.  Students can take the module in one of three versions: as a year-long 30 credit module; for term one or term two only.   
  • Writing History: To take a group of up to 18 students on this term one module, designed to provide support to the department's new undergraduates to assist in what can be a challenging transition from school level to university level study.

Candidates must have a PhD in a relevant field and should also have experience in university teaching and assessment.

The deadline for applications to this position is 10 August 2018. Interviews will be held on 24 August 2018.
