The College of Arts, Media, and Design at Northeastern University is planning to reconfigure its Cinema Studies program to become a program of Media and Screen Studies. We seek an exceptional candidate with demonstrated commitment to excellence in research, teaching, and service to join our program as a tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor beginning Fall 2012. Our proposed courses examine the historical, social and political contexts of media forms and texts, as well as a range of critical and theoretical approaches.
We are looking for a new colleague with research expertise in technology and culture with specialization in one or more of the following areas: the critical analysis of digital, network, and mobile media technologies; the social impact of new technologies, the transition from print to digital media, the social construction of technology, how the emergence of digital, networked, and mobile communication has impacted existing media and institutions, or the ways that digital platforms are impacting everyday lives (including representation and identity). Applications from outstanding candidates in other related areas will also be considered.
