We seek a humanities-based media studies scholar to join an innovative
and interdisciplinary department that includes Film and Media Studies,
Ethnography and Performance Studies, and Rhetoric and Public Culture. We

social media. We are particularly interested in those who adopt a
theoretical/critical, ethnographic, and/or historical approach to the
implications of digital technologies in relation to one or more of the
following areas: television, transmediation and convergence; national
and global media production; and audience practices. Our new colleague
will be responsible for developing an introductory lecture course about
digital and social media and advanced undergraduate courses in digital
televisual studies, as well as for actively shaping and teaching
graduate offerings in this field of study.

Candidates are expected to have a strong research agenda and a
commitment to excellence in teaching. Preference will be given to those
who have their Ph.D. in hand by the date the appointment begins and who
can demonstrate a research program devoted to digital and social media,
as well as teaching experience in this area.

Applicants should send hard copies of the following: a letter of
application, curriculum vitae, writing sample, and three letters of
recommendation to: Robert Terrill, Chair, Digital/Social Media Search,
