Employment Opportunity: Emerson College

Emerson College is pleased to announce a major faculty hiring initiative in civic media. Building on the Colleges strengths in communication and the arts and supporting the Colleges strategic initiatives in civic and global engagement, we seek to develop a distinguished faculty that addresses connections among media innovation, technologies, social networks and global citizenship. There is a need to consider how the changes brought by digital media are shaping political and social life, along with definitions of governance and citizenship. How people make and use media (whether it's a film or a tweet) to engage with the world, to make change, to be informed, or to connect across national borders, are topic areas that span the arts, sciences, humanities and social sciences.

The new faculty hires in Journalism, Visual and Media Arts, Communication Studies, and the Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies will form a distinctive interdisciplinary faculty cohort that intersects with students from across the College. While faculty members will have their primary appointments within one of the four participating units, they will share teaching responsibilities with the new College-wide minor in Digital Media and Culture, and have a research affiliation with the Emerson Engagement Labs (EEL). All the new faculty hires will begin August 28, 2014.
