Adjunct Part-time Position for Spanish Reading and Translation

Harvard Divinity School

Position Description

Harvard Divinity School seeks to appoint an adjunct instructor/lecturer to teach two courses in Spanish. The appointment title will depend on the finalists’ qualifications.

Ideally, the instructor /lecturer will teach Elementary Spanish for Reading and Translation in Theological and Religious Studies in the fall semester and Intermediate Spanish for Reading and Translation in Theological and Religious Studies in the spring semester (first and second semester translation – 2 courses). Also, the instructor/lecturer may be asked to take on the Spanish language qualifying exams three times a year (September/January/April) for additional pay; and/or the instructor/lecturer may be invited to teach the Spanish translation course as part of the Summer Language Program from mid-June to early August each year (for additional pay). All these arrangements are subject to availability and negotiation.

Class meetings during the academic year are preferably on one or two evenings per week during the semester time.

The courses are normally attended by masters and doctoral students of Harvard Divinity School’s masters programs as well as the doctoral Program in Religion. There may also be students from the various member schools of the Boston Theological Institute attending the courses. The courses must be open and accessible to the Divinity School’s diverse and multi-religious student body. The contents of the courses should reflect the diversity and variety of religious studies and theology.

The courses are basically reading and translation practice in selected texts in Spanish related to theological and religious studies. Review of Spanish grammar and syntax as they related to the translations at hand are required, as well as some cultural and language background studies for the students are expected.
