Call for Applications - AURO School of Law
The School of Law, AURO University, invites applications for faculty positions in the humanities and social sciences. AURO University (Surat) is deeply committed to values-based education, drawing on the philosophy of Sri Aurobindo. It has excellent infrastructure and a core team that is focused on taking innovative approaches to hiring faculty, developing curricula and building real world linkages.
Applicants should demonstrate a strong record of research and teaching in one or more of the following disciplines: History, Economics, Political Science, English, Economics, Sociology, Anthropology and Psychology. A postgraduate degree in the relevant discipline is an essential qualification; a PhD is a desirable one.
The AURO approach to the teaching of humanities courses in the Law School is problem-based. Towards this end, we encourage interested applicants to design courses that are centred around a theme or problem, to be explored through the course. The problem could be approached from across various disciplines, or from within a discipline. Thus, courses offered could be inter-disciplinary or disciplinary. What is important is that they try to address a problem or theme creatively.
For example, a course could be designed around the problem of property. Property is a core subject in the law, and covers issues like inheritance, intellectual property rights, etc. A social science course may approach this topic by inquiring into questions such as: Do all cultures, across all times, demonstrate a relationship of property or ownership, towards nature and / or other human beings? How does traditional village society in India organise property relationships? In a village in India, what resources (say a well, a temple) are privately owned and what are commonly owned or shared by the whole community? How do these traditional practices and ideas of access/ ownership in the village community come into conflict with the modern state's discourse of equal access to public goods and resources? Thus, we may approach the question of property through different routes (History, Culture Studies, Political Science, Sociology and Philosophy), within one course.
