The annual teaching load is 3/2, and consists of a combination of courses in Women's Studies, the host department, and general education. The candidate must be able to teach the introduction to women's studies and feminist theory, and will have the opportunity to develop a core course that will focus on transnational feminist issues. Successful candidates will have a strong background in interdisciplinary feminist approaches and expertise in intersectional approaches to gender, race, class, sexuality and nationality. The candidate will also contribute to Wheaton's innovative general education program.
