NYU London is currently recruiting for a part-time lecturer to teach Commerce and Culture a course sponsored by the Stern School of Business at NYU.Teaching commences in the autumn term (Sept-Dec 2021).
This course explores representations of business in novels, short stories, plays, and films. By considering markets and marketing, economies and institutions, work and wealth through these cultural texts, the course encourages students to consider the impact of business within society from the experiences of individuals rather than from the perspectives of companies or economics. Through this process students develop their writing and critical thinking skills.
Students complete three major writing assignments which consider the role of commerce and institutions in three aspects of modern life: i. social institutions and how they may shape individual identity; ii. expressions of culture and power of culture to construct meaning; iii. individual efforts to shape and change organizations and institutions.
Students will be assessed on these three papers, as well as seminar participation which typically involves facilitating class discussion, reading response forums, and reflection journals.
Instructors should be prepared to teach in-person and simultaneously to be prepared for remote instruction should circumstances require it. NYU uses Zoom as its primary platform for remote instruction.
Expectation of Hours:
The semester is 15 weeks (14 weeks of teaching plus an exam week) and there are 2.5 hours of classroom instruction each week offered across 2 days (75 min. each). In addition to the time required for course preparation, classroom instruction, and marking, the instructor is required to hold a minimum of one set 60-minute "office hour" at NYU London per week, during which time she or he will be available to meet with students.
