JOB: Instructor, African Art @ FIT

Dear colleagues,

At the Fashion Institute of Technology (NYC), we need to find an adjunct instructor for the African art survey classes we are offering in Fall 2022.  These are in-person courses that run from August 29-December 22.  There are two sections offered; ideally the same person would teach both:

HA 223 — African Art and Civilization

Surveys cultures of sub-Saharan Africa. Illustrated lectures present art and architecture in relation to history, religion, economic conditions, and social and political structures.

Mondays, 12-3pm

Tuesdays, 2-5pm

Pay is dependent on experience, but the base rate is $72.08 an hour.  We can recommend step-level increases for teaching experience and for professional activities. A class is three hours for 15 weeks, with an extra week of pay to cover office hours, so 48 hours.  It works out to be about a minimum $3500, if higher steps are awarded then the base rate is higher. Classes are capped at 27, and we expect to have a renegotiated contract by the end of the Spring semester, with wages 7% higher. Our adjunct faculty have the opportunity to join our union, the UCE-FIT which provides a variety of benefits.

Please alert your colleagues and send me a CV if you are interested. Thank you!

All the best,

Justine De Young
