Professor Unger is looking for Law and Kennedy School students who would be interested in serving as Teaching Assistants to teach an undergraduate section in each of two courses to be taught in the Spring 2024 semester: Political Economy and its Future (Mondays, 1-3pm), and Progressive Alternatives: Institutional Reconstruction Now (Wednesdays, 1-3pm).

The courses are open to both graduate students (including Law and Kennedy School students) and undergraduate students and are cross-listed by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (under the Government Department), the Kennedy School, and the Law School. The TAs may teach in both courses, or in only one of them. It will be an advantage, although it is not necessary, to have taken either or both these courses as an enrolled graduate student in a prior year. It is also possible to take either or both as an enrolled graduate student in the same year in which that student serves as a TA for undergraduates.

The Teaching Assistant will be remunerated by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The TA will be expected to teach a weekly discussion section, read two brief response papers that undergraduates write during the semester as well as one longer paper to be written in the final weeks of the course, and to participate actively in the main class discussion.

If you think you might be interested, please send a brief statement of interest and your CV, to Caroline Fitzgerald, cfitzgerald@law.harvard.edu. Mr. Unger will then arrange a time to speak with you.
