NYU Paris is seeking a part-time lecturer to teach up to two sections of "Writing I", the first of a two-part Freshman writing course. Writing I introduces students to the essay genre and complicates their understanding of its varied forms and functions. The course offers occasions to practice essay writing across disciplines and in several modes, including personal, critical, academic, and journalistic. It also exposes students to writing, reading, and critical thinking skills necessary for undergraduate work as well as writing beyond academic contexts, and introduces them to some of the interdisciplinary and theoretical bases for such practices. The course engages global issues and perspectives through its reading and writing assignments, as well as through the experiential learning it incorporates. Writing I thus helps students develop an appreciation for the use of writing as not merely a showcase for knowledge and opinion, but more importantly, as a tool for thinking and inquiry.
