Syracuse University London is looking for an instructor for Fall 2019 for a business and communications course: BUA300.1/CRS300.1: London’s Creative Industries.
What are the creative industries and how do they contribute to the lives of Londoners and the economy of the capital city and nation? This course combines site visits and guest speakers with classroom work, drawing on methods from business studies, cultural history, cultural studies, media studies, sociology, and semiotics.
Through innovative assignments, students learn to “connect the dots” as they explore: What is creativity and how is it channelled into and exploited by markets? How has creative labour and consumption in London’s economy evolved over time? What identities do people form through engaging with London’s creative industries? How has Britain’s long industrial and artisanal traditions impacted today’s creative industries, and how do they fit within the global knowledge economy? How do the growing inequalities of British society manifest in London’s creative landscape?
This is an adjunct position for one semester, with the possibility of renewal in Spring 2020. The course meets on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 2:00-3:30pm; please consider this time slot when applying. Email your CVand cover letter to Dr Meghan Callahan, Assistant Director for Teaching and Learning at email@example.com by July 27 to be considered.
