My department is seeking a historian of science (or an extremely capable scholar of western intellectual history) to administer a distance education course this summer (May-July) and next fall/winter (September-April) in the history of science that surveys the field from antiquity through the twentieth century.
HIST 3905 History of Science (A study of the rise of science in relation to the development of Western society) has been prepared with an excellent, comprehensive course manual that students will read along with the assigned textbooks: Ede, A. and Cormack, L. B., A History of Science in Society: From Philosophy to Utility (2004), Larson, E. J., Evolution: The Remarkable History of a Scientific Theory (2006). The course structure has been set but it will still require someone who’s familiar with the field to administer successfully and to assess student assignments.
HIST 3905 is offered via our Envision program and is conducted online.
Interested applicants should send to the Department Chair, Dr. Sara Burke, a letter of application, a current curriculum vitae, a current teaching dossier and any relevant supporting documentation.
