Part time non-tenure track lectureships with the Dimensions of Culture Writing Program with Thurgood Marshall College, UC San Diego, will be available for the 2022-2023 academic year (if needed, applicants may be considered for the current 2021-22 academic year). Appointments vary from one to three quarters. Instructors will teach one (or more) of the lower or upper division DOC courses.
Thurgood Marshall's Writing Program, “Dimensions of Culture (DOC),” instructs students in critical reading and writing by developing students’ historically grounded understanding of the diverse experiences that have shaped U.S. culture. The lower-division sequence (DOC 1-3) is required of all first-year students at Marshall College and constitutes the core of Marshall College’s general education requirements, providing a unified academic experience for all first year students that is grounded in the College’s commitment to social justice.
DOC course themes include but are not limited to:
• successive waves of immigration
• the formation of stratifications based on gender, class, "race," religion, and other categories
• the social movements that struggled to fulfill the founding ideals
• the role of institutions in the delivery of justice and equity, and
• the cultural productions that have been shaped by these issues.
Each quarter, students in the lower-division sequence attend both large-class lectures taught by DOC faculty and small discussion section meetings guided by Teaching Assistants. DOC 1-3 lecturers will teach from a unified and collaborative syllabus with required writing assignments that are uniform across all tracks. DOC 1-3 courses are designed to be integrated, with central themes flowing from course to course and learning objectives building upon each other to ensure that Marshall College students are able to read critically, produce effective written arguments, and practice a rigorous research process after completion of the sequence.
