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.
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,
