One of the ways we realize our global mission is by supporting visiting professorships at important international academic institutions. The Terra Foundation teaching program in Asia is hosted jointly at Doshisha and Kobe universities, in the Kansai region of Japan. During the grant period, visiting professors will offer annual courses (undergraduate and graduate) in American art history before 1980. The position is based at the Graduate School of Global Studies (American Studies Cluster) at Doshisha University, in Kyoto. Responsibilities for the academic year include teaching two graduate-level courses and one undergraduate-level course at Doshisha University, and one combined graduate-undergraduate level course at Kobe University’s Graduate School of Intercultural Studies. The visiting professor offers individual research consultation to undergraduate and graduate students working in related fields, as well as organize an academic conference or symposium during the period of appointment.
