Possible areas of focus include: diplomatic theory of international relations; US foreign policy doctrines; U.S. interventionism/militarism; the intersection of domestic politics and foreign policy; political uses of foreign aid; geopolitics and borders; foreign policy and human security; social movements and internal or regional revolutions; and gender and foreign policy.

Bennington College is a small residential liberal arts college in southern Vermont, long distinguished for its progressive approach to higher education. The College was founded in 1932 on the principle of active engagement in learning, which is manifest in individualized plans of study developed by students together with faculty. We aim to educate students towards self-fulfillment and constructive social purposes, and we believe that equity, diversity, and inclusivity--in community and in curriculum--are vital to achieving those aims.

Candidates should apply on-line below by submitting the following: a) a letter of application that describes teaching experience, professional work, and includes a reflection on the candidate’s potential to contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment through teaching, research, and/or service; b) a current curriculum vitae; c) a teaching statement that includes a description of three potential courses and; d) the names and contact information for three references.
