History at Goldsmiths fosters enthusiasm for the study of the past through a focus on encounters, explorations, ideas and identities. Our emphasis on encounters addresses the interplay of religious, political and cultural differences across time and place. We use innovative approaches to encourage the exploration of issues, controversies, and themes rather than chronological periods. By examining the development of ideas and identities, we draw upon the past to illuminate the conflicts and challenges of modern life.
History at Goldsmiths promotes intellectual curiosity and independent critical thinking. We offer flexible and challenging programmes of study at undergraduate and postgraduate levels featuring carefully developed teaching invigorated by current research.
We are now seeking to appoint an Associate Lecturer in History to join our dynamic academic team.
The appointee will be expected to teach an existing Year 2 and 3 optional module Heresy, the Occult and the Apocalypse in early modern Europe. The course is taught over 20 weeks through weekly one-hour lecture and one-hour seminars. The module has been taught previously and therefore all sources used in the module are already available at Goldsmiths. The appointee will will also be expected to mark students’ work.
The salary for this post is pro rata and based on the number of hours contracted. We estimate an average 50 hours.
We strongly welcome applications from all candidates, including from BME, LGBTQI and disabled communities which are currently underrepresented in the department.
