About Us

Politics Lecturer

The Lake Forest College Department of Politics has an opening for a part-time lecturer to teach one course in the Spring 2017 semester. This course introduces students to modern Mexican politics. Topics include Mexico’s political institutions, economic development, immigration and border issues, racial and ethnic politics, and the challenge to deepening Mexico’s democracy by what some scholars have termed “narco-politics.” This course also explores Mexico’s relationship with the United States to the north and Latin America to the south. No prerequisites. (Meets GEC Cultural Diversity Requirement.)

The class meets Mondays and Wednesdays, 1:00 to 2:20.   

We see lecturers who have earned a Ph.D. or are ABD in Political Science. 

Candidates should submit a curriculum vita, one letter of recommendation that addresses their teaching, and a cover letter to Siobhan Moroney, Chair, Department of Politics, moroney@lakeforest.edu.
