September 14, 2009 | By |

The Amherst College Department of Women’s and Gender Studies seeks to appoint a full-time Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor (tenure-track or tenured) to begin in the fall of 2010. “Images and Textualities” suggests a focus on interactive media, such as written or printed texts, pictures (including art) or film; the Global South is defined as Africa, the Middle East, Asia or Latin America. The person hired must have completed her/his PhD, in a humanities discipline, by the time of appointment. A degree from an interdisciplinary program such as Women’s Studies, Ethnic Studies, Black Studies, Cultural Studies, Film/Media Studies or the various Area Studies would be acceptable provided the person’s main expertise is in the humanities. We would also entertain applications from social scientists with a strong humanities focus, though our already existing strengths in history and political science preclude hiring in those two fields.

Tenure-track Position, Concordia University

October 17, 2008 | By |


Concordia University’s Department of Communication Studies invites
applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant
Professor in INTERMEDIA. The Department has recently launched
Intermedia as a fourth production stream in its highly selective
undergraduate program, to complement established offerings in Film,
Video, and Sound. This innovation has been broadly conceived to take
account of the massive changes wrought by “the computerization of
culture” in the arts, in professional practice, and in the academy.
Our adoption of the term ‘intermedia’ is intended to address a
confluence of media practices ? diverse, hybrid, liminal, analog and
digital ? that cannot be easily captured in any one, established
medium. The stream currently draws on the principles and practices of
graphic design and typography, motion graphics, stopmotion animation,
interactivity and database documentary. Read More
