In today’s competitive job market, graduate students increasingly seek teaching jobs outside of traditional departments – for example, in novel interdisciplinary programs and rapidly growing professional schools. While these settings provide unique teaching opportunities, they also present new kinds of classroom challenges. In this workshop, we will discuss what it means to teach anthropology outside of an anthropology department, and how to bring anthropological graduate training to bear on non-anthropological course material. Although we will focus on bringing anthropological expertise and training to new classroom spaces, this workshop will be useful to anyone who is interested in bringing their own disciplinary expertise and graduate training to a larger audience. All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Anthropology department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
