Adjunct Opportunity to Teach Public History, Wagner College

I am writing to see if any of your graduate students in public history or other fields would be interested in an adjunct opportunity for Spring 2011 at Wagner College. We have openings for four adjuncts in the Spring of 2011 and I am looking for someone to do History and Law, Public History and any two other areas. Any students with a MA, ABD or recent graduates would be eligible.

Wagner College, a small liberal arts college on Staten Island, has a van leaving the Staten Island Ferry regularly and transportation is easy. Our adjunct salary is a modest stipend of $2,000. Classes are small and students are respectful and engaged.

Please can you forward this to your students or send me their contact information. I am putting the Spring schedule together to submit by October 1st.
