Imaginary Syllabi

Since I have never taught any courses all of the syllabi I have submitted for job applications along with my CV are purely imaginary. That is they only exist in paper form and have never been executed in a classroom setting. Since only one of the more than 100 institutions I have applied to has ever given me an interview I think that I am probably not providing the selection committees with what they want to read. I doubt that I will ever get to teach any of these courses, but maybe somebody can get some use out of my syllabi. At any rate I am going to start posting a few of them here in the hopes that maybe somebody can offer me some constructive criticism. I will post the first one later today.
