Other courses will be upper-division undergraduate lectures in modern and/or premodern Chinese, Japanese and/or Korean history, depending on applicants' specialties and proposals; and perhaps an undergraduate colloquium. Appointment(s) may be part-time, full-time, quarterly or annual, for the academic year 2017-18.
