Dear Colleages,
The Art, Art History and Film Department at Boston College seeks to hire someone to teach two courses (one each semester) in Islamic art and architecture during the 2018-19 academic year. One class should be an introduction to Islamic art and/or architecture; the other should be a more specialized undergraduate lecture course that fits into the existing offerings. Topics might include urbanism, the art of the object, the Islamic book, the arts of Islamic Spain, etc.  Courses meet twice weekly for 1 hour 15 minutes and normally have 20-25 undergraduate students from across the university.  Interested applicants should send a letter of interest, along with a CV and the names of three references to the department chair, Prof. Claude Cernuschi,
