Duties and Responsibilities
Ennis fellows teach three courses of the Augustine and Culture Seminar each semester. ACS is a two semester writing intensive interdisciplinary seminar, required of all first year students. Each class is capped at sixteen students. The students are expected to write a minimum of thirty pages per semester.
ACS 1000 focuses on texts of antiquity and the Middle Ages, including Augustines Confessions. ACS 1001 continues the emphasis on self in the world through the lens of modernity, starting with Shakespeare and continuing to the present. The course gives attention to the Catholic intellectual Tradition and its ongoing mission to defend the dignity of the human person, recognize the need for human solidarity, and serve the common good.
Fellows participate in the ACS Programs faculty development program as well as the ACS lecture series. There are no other service requirements.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a Humanities discipline.
Successful candidates will demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching in the Humanities, and an interest in teaching the thought and influence of Augustine and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. In addition, since ACS explores a wide and diverse range of significant voices through human history, we seek teacher/scholars who represent that range through their scholarship. We particularly encourage scholars in the fields of African-American Studies and African-American Literature.
