Invitation to potential lecturers

The University's International Summer School is recognized around the world for the quality of its programmes and its course directors. These programmes have been running successfully for 75 years and developments are in hand to expand the range of courses on offer, to reflect more closely the subjects taught within the University. The organizers of these programmes are now looking for talented and dynamic teachers in the University, who would be willing to be considered for teaching university-level courses in the Summer of 1999 and beyond. (There is no teaching in English as a foreign language.)

 Course directors and guest lecturers alike have found their international audiences stimulating, challenging, and appreciative. The Summer Schools offer lecturers the experience of teaching groups of mixed age and nationality, and often the chance to develop courses closely related to their own particular interests.

 Teaching opportunities range from one-off plenary lectures to short courses (five lectures over a period of between two-and-a-half and five days) to team-taught or individually directed courses lasting from one to four weeks. Subject areas (currently offered or proposed) include:

History English Literature Art and Architectural History Economics
Philosophy Environmental Studies Law Politics
Sociology Archaeology History and Philosophy of Science Music
Medieval Studies Plant Sciences International Relations Zoology
Geography Anthropology Genetics Education
Mathematics and many more……

Suggestions for lectures or courses, either from individuals or as collaborative ventures, are welcome in any of these areas. Proposals for other subject areas are also welcome, and their adaptability to existing Summer Schools can be discussed. Those whose interest and experience correspond with our needs will be invited to an information meeting at the beginning of next term.

 All those interested in contributing to the University's International Summer Schools are invited to contact Sarah Ormrod (tel. 140 216, email sjo1001@cus.cam.ac.uk) or Catherine Boyle (tel. 140 220, email cmb32@cam.ac.uk), for further information and samples of existing programme brochures.
