Charles Center Teaching Fellowship in Women's Studies
CHARLES CENTER TEACHING FELLOWS: Be a teaching assistant for Women's Studies 205 Community Action Projects!
The Women's Studies Program is inviting applications from Women's Studies majors who have taken WMST 205, "Introduction to Women's Studies," and would like to be teaching assistants in the course this spring. Your primary responsibility as a TA will be to assist students with their Community Action Projects (CAP). TAs will consult with faculty members and students on the generation of ideas for CAPS, facilitate meetings between CAP groups and campus organizations and offices, and help CAP groups plan, develop, and carry out their projects. TAs will be expected to attend classes and forum meetings (on Tuesday evenings) occasionally throughout the semester, and will be available to meet with CAP groups outside of class as well. Charles Center Teaching Fellows will be awarded a $500 stipend.
To be qualified you must be a Women's Studies major and have taken WMST 205. We are especially interested in applicants who have organizational experience, either on campus or off.
To apply, submit a letter explaining your interest in the position. Please tell us what focus you have taken in your Women's Studies major and what sort of activist/organizational experience and/or research experience you have. If you have any time constraints in the spring semester, please give us details. Finally, include an unofficial transcript, showing courses and grades.
Please also list a few faculty linked to Women’s Studies who can speak to your qualifications. They don’t need to write a letter, just give us their name and e-mail.
Submissions should be e-mailed to the Director of Women's Studies, [[gxozye,Professor Gul Ozyegin]] by 5 pm on Tuesday, November 20th. Any questions about the position may be directed to Professor Ozyegin or to the co-ordinator of WMST 205, [[vcastillo,Professor Victoria Castillo]].
