The Program in Environmental Studies at Williams College invites applications for a full-time, one-year visiting position in environmental studies, beginning July 1, 2013. Candidates with training in environmental studies and relevant fields in the environmental humanities or humanistic social sciences (geography, environmental history, anthropology, sociology, and philosophy) are encouraged to apply. We seek candidates who are active scholars and who are able to teach intermediate and advanced courses on modern environmental thought and the cultural dimensions of environmental politics, as well as an interdisciplinary introduction to environmental studies.
